'Dracula's Castle' for sale in Transylvania

BRAN, Romania – Last month we told you about an island for sale off the coast of Venice that's said to be the "world's most haunted place." Now there's another historic European location for sale.

Bran Castle, known as "Dracula's Castle," will be sold by a New York law firm for the right price, according toThe Telegraph.

Mark Meyer with Herzfeld and Rubin tells the paper they will look at the person who is making the offer and how much they're offering.

Construction on the castle was completed in 1388, and is the home of Dracula in Bram Stoker's story of the same name, though there's no evidence the person who inspired Dracula, Vlad III, known after death as "Vlad the Impaler," ever lived in the castle.

The fortress is currently a national monument and landmark owned by Archduke Dominic Habsburg and his sisters. Though there is currently no set asking price, it was offered for $135 million when it was put on the market in 2008.
