Would You Spend The Night In A Coffin In Dracula’s Castle?
Dracula remains my favorite novel, and I've always enjoyed vampire stories and movies.
I'm still not sure that I'd want to do this, though. Airbnb is offering a chance to spend the night in Bran Castle in Transylvania, one of the castles that the historical Vlad Dracula once occupied. The winner and a guest get to explore the ancient castle, enjoy a candlelit dinner just like the one Dracula served to Jonathan Harker in the novel, and spend the night. The catch: you have to sleep in a velvet lined coffin.
I'm a bit claustrophobic, so I'm not sure I'd survive the night. It might be worth it for the chance to visit Transylvania and meet Dacre Stoker, the great - grandnephew of Bram Stoker, author of Dracula. Bran Castle and the surrounding countryside is also beautiful, so it would be fun to visit.
