Count Dracula of Romania is being swamped by a tourist boom. Tourism has overtaken the facts of his spooky life and turned them into fiction. For fans worldwide Bram Stoker's Dracula - as immortalised in the book and countless films of the same name - is the real story of Dracula, teeth and all. But the real Vlad Dracula story, particularly nasty though it is, bears little relation to Stoker's version. He was a minor Count in a different part of Transylvania renowned for impaling his enemies on wooden stakes. The Transylvania Society of Dracula wants to set the record straight. They lead us on a tour of Vlad's home town - complete with the Dracula Hotel and coffin-filled crypt.

THE REAL DRACULA ventures into the mists of history to chronicle the exploits of the 15th century prince known as Vlad the Impaler. Ruling from a mountain fortress reached by a stairway of 1400 steps, Vlad was a sadist of unimaginable proportions. Legends say that he impaled hundreds of his enemies on stakes in the plain below his castle, then took lunch surrounded by the grisly ""forest"" of his victims, dipping his bread in their blood! Bram Stoker, in writing his classic 1897 novel Dracula, took Vlad as his model for the vampire who has become a cultural icon throughout the Western World. But the exploits of the fictional vampires pale in comparison to the horrors committed by Vlad, THE REAL DRACULA!
