For spending a time in Romania we recommend Princely Palace in Bucharest, Romania's capital. The best place where you can refresh your history knowledge or learn some new facts. Prince Vlad the Impaler during his reign built the Princely Palace. He was even in his days known as Dracula, Son of the Dragon. Despite the legendary brutality that extended to his people, he successfully fought off the Turks and kept the Ottoman Empire out of the door. Today, many Romanians think of him as of great warrior and a hero who died defending his country.
