"Dracula's Castle" can be a house for the night to those lucky enough to win a contest from Airbnb. For more than 70 years the castle is open to the public in this Halloween offer.

According to a report in Statesman, a lucky couple will have the chance to sleep in "Dracula's Castle" on Halloween night. They will spend the night with wine and a fine dinner. The couple is given the chance to sleep on a velvet-trimmed coffin. However, a bed is also available if the coffin is too much to take.

"Dracula's Castle" is located in the Carapathian Mountains of Romania. Those interested to join the contest are asked to think of something on what to say to Dracula if ever they had the chance to meet him.

The Kansas City Star reports that this is the first time that "Dracula's Castle" is ever opened to guests. Bran Castle is the name of this place and is popular since it is associated with Vlad the Impaler. He happens to be the real-life prince who used stakes to impale his victims. The Prince's story was the one that inspired Bram Stoker to write about Count Dracula.

In a report from The Telegraph, Bram Stoker never really visited Romania although he read about "Dracula's Castle" and eventually made it his fine literary work. His 19th century classic has been read by many, in fact, it has been made into a film.

Meanwhile, the event will be hosted by Bram Stoker's great nephew Dacre Stoker. He is passionate in preaching about his uncle's classic novel and is a devoted vampire expert. The "Dracula's Castle" is going to be the center of attention on Halloween Night.

It is believed that Vlad the Impaler never really resided in "Dracula's Castle." It may be that he may have been imprisoned in the place for a time and was under a spell.

The lucky ones will reside in "Dracula's Castle" on October 31, 2016.
