I guess the real dracula was much more terrible than the vampire of fantasy.
marvelous view with that fabulous mountain like a dome at distance. the urban landscape looks very mixed with the greens.

take care

Default To jmdias: Vlad Tepes

Hi Jorge

Vlad Tepes, the real Dracula ('Dracula' is Romanian for 'Dragon', the royal family crest) was a very nasty piece of work. Nicknamed 'Vlad the Impaler', he would skewer hundreds of Turkish soldiers that invaded Romania and leave their bodies on stakes as a warning. From memory he made so many enemies within Romania that someone informed on him to the Turks, who captured and killed him. "The Ottomans cut Vlad's corpse into pieces. Bonfini wrote that Vlad's head was sent to Mehmed II, the Ottoman leader."
