About BRAN Castle Bran
Greetings and Welcome to Bran Castle.
On May 18, 2009, after 61 years, 4 months and 11 days of state ownership, Bran Castle was returned to the children of Princess Ileana of Romania, Dominic, Elisabeth and Maria Magdalena.
All traces of the family had been erased. What once was Queen Marie's most cherished residence, and our family home, was stripped and barren.
Within three weeks, Bran Castle was restored, blooming in full splendor, to welcome you.
This joyful transformation was made possible through the joint efforts of the loyal, loving and hard-working people of Bran, our family, and helping hands coming together from all over the world.
We invite you to experience the history, the myth, the intrigue and the magic of this wonderful place. We hope that you will carry the spirit that makes us love Bran Castle, with you, always.
We look forward to your visit. You are most welcomed in our home.
