Join us for a vampire-style, horror-themed dinner with a bite while you’re in Transylvania, the land of Dracula!
After we meet at City Hall, your local guide will lead you through the old city centre of Turda to Dracula’s saloon. Along the way, you’ll hear a few tales of Transylvania’s rich past and get to admire the lovely Habsburg architecture.
Once you’re inside the saloon, you’ll have the opportunity to the meet the vamp himself… well, not really. You’ll actually meet a life-size statue of the infamous Vlad the Impaler, said to be the inspiration behind the world’s most famous vampire (ultimate photo op, by the way). We’ll share a few terrifying tales about proper impalement procedures, while sipping a glass of tzuica (Transylvanian plum brandy). It’ll be an appropriate aperitif as we debate the use of plum trees for manufacturing impalement stakes.
You’ll listen to stories of Transylvanian history and Romanian vampire mythology: you’ll hear the tale of the English real estate agent, Harker, who comes to Transylvania to meet the mysterious Count Dracula. When the Count has eyes for Harker’s fiancée, Mina, vampire slayer Van Helsing steps in. But will they be able to save Mina from the always bloodthirsty Dracula? Also, what is the role of Dracula’s sinister servant bat and what secret will it reveal about one of the participants at dinner?
As you’re entertained with stories, you’ll also dine on a vampire-themed 5-course meal of Walachian Count Roast Beef, Smoked Turks on the Steak, Dracula’s Chop, Vampire’s Manhood, and Lost Souls (cheese pancakes). And we’ll wash it all down with red wine, of course — no bloodsucking… this time.
