Some say that Transylvania sits on one of earth's strongest magnetic fields and its people have extra-sensory perceptions.  Vampires are believed to hang around crossroads on St. George's Day, April 23rd, and the eve of St. Andrew, November 29th.  The area is also home to Bram Stoker's Dracula, and it's easy to get caught up in the tale while driving along winding roads through dense, dark, ancient forests and mountain passes.

Bram Stoker built his fictional character based on the research that he conducted in libraries in London and found some of his inspiration for Dracula after staying in Whitby.  He stayed in a house on the West Cliff (the Crescent).

During Dracula's voyage to Whitby aboard the ship Demeter, he sustained himself on the ship's crew members.   He required no other sustenance but fresh blood, which had the effect of rejuvenating him, without it, he physically aged at an accelerated rate.
Only one body was later found, that of the captain, who is found tied up to the ship's helm.

Dracula took control of Renfield, a patient in an insane asylum compelled to consume insects, spiders, birds, and other creatures - in ascending order of size - in order to absorb their "life force".  Renfield acted as a kind of motion sensor, detecting Dracula's closeness.

The only definite way to kill him is by decapitating him followed by impalement through the heart, although it is also suggested that shooting him with a sacred bullet would also do the job.

Dutch Doctor Van Helsing finally dispatched Dracula, having driven a wooden stake through his heart!
