Walachia - Transylvania - According to the locals, Hunedora Castle has numerous haunted activity, including the famous Vlad "the Impaler" Dracula the 3rd. They say his agitated spirit still roams the caste and his prisoners who were impaled or tortured. In one room where two twin children slept were murdered in their sleep. Also a boyar who found out his wife was having an affair, murdered his wife by driving a spike threw her skull. Renovations were planed to fix up the castle in 1995, but the labors were scared off when they found Dracula's medallion (which according to legend he called upon the devil for power) in the castle. Of course, they say the medallion is cursed. Recently in October of 2001, a family was dared by "Worlds Scariest Places" Family channel to spend one night in the castle. The family recorded data of any poltergeist-like activity. Most activity seemed to flourish when one of the family members found Dracula's medallion. Understandably, no local dares venture in the castle, but it is surprisingly open for tourism!
