What you'll do

On this online journey, we embark together with 3 knowledgeable guides:

-Dacre Stoker: best selling author, the great grand nephew of novelist Bram Stoker, revealing the creational process of Count Dracula as a fictional figure
- Nora Vintila: experienced and witty local guide in Romania, leading you through Transylvania's surprising landscape and culture, and uncovering exciting details from Vlad Dracula's life
-Gloria Andersson: Transylvanian journalist and travel expert, as your service-minded hostess

Our talks are based on history, solid research of Bram Stoker's manuscripts, as well as intriguing legends. Everything is spiced up with colorful photos or candid videos of charming Transylvanian citadels, as well as Bran Castle, known as Dracula's Castle.

Have a glass of your favorite drink within reach, lean back, relax and enjoy the virtual visit to Transylvania's quaint medieval towns and fascinating landscapes.

We conclude with a pleasant mingle & questions session, to allow you to go in-depth. You will be able to ask the questions you've always wanted to ask about Dracula and Transylvania, live.

Together, we will dig beyond deeply buried secrets and symbols created around the "vampire count".

The truth behind the myth has many shapes, but we reveal the essence of it and we let you enjoy it at a leisurely pace.

“Welcome to my house! Enter freely. Go safely, and leave something of the happiness you bring”. That's how Count Dracula welcomed his guest, in Bram Stoker's celebrated novel published 1897.

So, welcome to my homeland, Transylvania!

I'm Gloria, a licensed guide and journalist, born and raised in Transylvania. Since 2004 I've been a tour leader in Central and Eastern Europe, with a focus on my home country, Romania. I run the travel agency Experience Transylvania since 2012.

As a travel professional and history devotee, I am happy to show you around through Transylvanian culture.

I am grateful to have such valuable co-hosts like best selling author Dacre Stoker and local guide Nora Vintila, to guide our guests through the corridors of history and fiction.

This was such an interesting tour, both relating to the history behind the Dracula story, but also learning about Transylvania and the other areas of Romania. The hosts were all so welcoming, friendly and chatty, and it felt like an incredibly personal experience because of the knowledge the hosts had, including the author's great grand nephew who shared stories that you just wouldn't hear elsewhere. I absolutely loved this experience, I learned loads and it was fun as well! Thank you!
