Great-grandson of Dracula’s creator to visit Tihuta Pass


Great-grandson of Bram Stoker, the author of the famous ‘Dracula’ novel, is expected to pay a visit next week to the Tihuta Pass (Bistrita-Nasaud County, north-western Romania), the place where the writer imagined being the castle of the vampire-count, one the most famous character of the world’s literature. According to information remitted to Agerpres by Ana-Maria Muscar, the manager of the hotel that was named after Dracula, built in the 1980s by the authorities in the Bistrita-Nasaud County precisely in the Tihuta Pass, no one from the Stoker family has ever got involved in tourist activities related to the famous vampire. However, the great-grandson of the Irish-born writer, Dacre Stoker, decided to team with the Dutch photographer Hans Corneel de Roos to create the ‘Dracula, Bram Stoker, Travel Guide’. The great-grandson of Bram Stoker will be accommodated in the hotel built exactly on the spot indicated by the novel, in front of which there is a statue of the writer. He will deliver a press conference on November 22 to explain his project and also why Bram Stoker didn’t want to be made any connection between his Dracula character and Romanian ruler Vlad Tepes.
