Dracula Bookmarks

Targoviste - between myth and reality

Synopsis

Centuries ago, Vlad Tepes, a Romanian prince, became well known in Europe because of his bloody habit, impaling. For this reason, people called him Vlad the Impaler. One of the favourite cities to express this bloody wish, was Targoviste. That’s why, Vlad the Impaler has been associated with Dracula, and Targoviste as one of Dracula’s house.
How does it look Targoviste nowadays?

A very quiet town, the only army that makes noise is for the celebration of the town.

Αιώνες πριν, γράφουν οι Ρουμάνοι συνεργάτες μας, ένας αιμοσταγής ηγεμόνας της Βλαχίας, ο Βλαντ Τέπες, ήταν διαβόητος στην Ευρώπη για τη συνήθειά του να ανασκολοπίζει τους εχθρούς του. Ένα από τα κάστρα του, το κάστρο του Δράκουλα βρίσκεται στην πόλη μας, Ταργκοβίστε, σήμερα μια ήσυχη επαρχιακή πόλη. Ο μόνος στρατός που παρελαύνει είναι οι κάτοικοι κατά τις τοπικές γιορτές.

Πρόκειται για τη θεά των Ελευσινίων μυστηρίων που δίδαξε την καλλιέργεια του σίτου και έδωσε ελπίδα για τη μεταθανάτια ζωή στους θνητούς!

I want to answer to that question with mirror. I think that Dracula can't appear in a mirror because it is a creature of dark. Even so count Dracula can stay awake day it is just for a while, not for whole day. Dracula is a vampire who loves dark, not the light. Mirror reflects the creatures which belong tot the both worlds: the light world and the dark world. What do you thing??

"Dracula" ,of Bram Stoker,is a book with happy ending it describes another part of the strange Romania,where there are:vampires,which could transform other persons in vampires,but in the same time they could be disturbed as the people shack quietly and less victims. This book symbolize strange/acquaintance , love/hatred , happiness/suffering.

Greek students: 1. It would scare the hell out of him to see himself!
2.He is trapped between existence and nonexistence. He is a soulless body
3.He didn't wish to "see" the truth

"If Dracula can't see his reflection in the mirror, how come his hair is always so neatly combed?"
