"Dracula's Castle" in Transylvania went up for sale on Monday by an heir of Romania's former royal family. The castle is perched on a cliff near Brasov in mountainous central Romania and was built in the 14th century as a fortress to protect against the invading Ottoman Turks. After being restored in the late 1980s it gained popularity as a tourist attraction known as "Dracula's Castle." It has been predicted that the castle will sell for more than $135 million and will only be sold to a buyer who will treat the property and history with respect. Oh and the resident bats also need to stay.
