    • This show calls the Hunyad Castle in Hunedoara Dracula's castle, but there are a number of locations that share that moniker. These include Bran Castle in Brasov which is the most popular, and Sighisoara Castle which was where he was born. Poenari Castle is also associated with Vlad, and is the location where his first wife committed suicide rather than be taken prisoner by the invading Turks. Hunyad Castle is where Vlad spent the seven years as a captive of King Matthias of Hungary.
