Prince Charles Buys Property in Transylvania

Prince Charles is planning to buy a property in the Romanian region of Transylvania, well known as the birthplace of Vlad The Impaler, inspiration for Bram Stoker’s “Dracula”.

The prince is looking to buy a property to promote sustainable tourism in the region, a spokesman for Charles announced.

The proposed purchase, in the village of Viscri, would not be for Charles’s personal use, but would be restored and rented out to tourists.

The prince is patron of the Mihai Eminescu Trust, which works to restore the cultural heritage, economy and nature of the villages in Transylvania.
