Shack up with Drac
BUCHAREST: “No garlic or garlicscented items allowed, including perfume,” read the house rules of Count Dracula’s castle to ensure Halloween night guests cannot avoid the vampire.
Two people will be allowed to sleep in velvet-trimmed coffins in the seclusion of the count’s crypt and will spend the rest of the night in the Carpathians castle completely alone, said vacation rental marketplace Airbnb.
The firm launched a contest to pick the castle’s first overnight guests since Romania’s post-World War II regime expelled the owners almost 70 years ago. – Reuters
