The BranCastle, perched on a cliff near Brasov in mountainous central Romania, was built in the 14th century to serve as a fortress. Legend has it that Prince Vlad the Impaler, who earned his nickname because of the way he tortured his enemies, spent one night in the 1400s at the castle. The royal family moved into the castle in the 1920s, living there until the communist regime confiscated it from Princess Ileana in 1948. In May 2006, the castle was returned to Princess Ileana's son, Archduke Dominic Habsburg. In July, he put the castle up for sale!
