Airbnb Offers a Night in Dracula's Castle: Figure 1

As has become the norm, Airbnb is running a contest for creepy Halloween night accommodations. Last year, the prize was an evening in the Paris Catacombs.

This year, the contest will award a stay for two at Dracula’s Castle in Transylvania (or more accurately, Bran Castle in Romania).

Dracula author Bram Stoker’s great grand-nephew and vampire expert Dacre Stoker will host a night in the 57-room castle, overlooking the Carpathian mountains. Bran Castle dates back to the 14th century and is cited as the inspiration behind Dracula’s castle. Contest entrants were asked, “What would you say to the Count if you were to come face-to-fang with him in his own castle?”

The winner and a guest will be able to spend Halloween exploring the castle, enjoying a candlelit dinner in the style of Jonathan Hawker’s meal in the classic novel, and spending the night in a velvet-trimmed coffin in the Count’s crypt.

Naturally, any vampire-hunting or -repellant paraphernalia is banned from the premises.
