The popular Romanian tourist attraction Bran Castle, associated with Vlad the Impaler and known as "Dracula's Castle," has been returned to the heir of the Habsburg family. The state had seized the castle when Communist rule began in Romania after World War II.
Dominic von Habsburg was forced to leave the castle with his family in 1948 at the age of ten. He says he feels he is finally going home.
A 2005 Romanian law allows owners and their families to claim property that was nationalized under the Communist.
