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.
A feedback from Medeea Secretariat

"Demeter" is the name of the ship with which Dracula travelled from Romania to England, in a most thrilling story within a story!

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

Romanian corner in a Greek school

We have finally finished our European Kiosque at the entrance of our school. The Reading Club made the Romanian corner with the gifts our etwinners sent us from their beautiful homeland. A happy coincidence:
We were pleased to recall our collaboration with the Targoviste Reading Group today. Anastasia come from London to the library to interview us for her PhD on Web2 tools. All the team gathered and evaluated their work a year after it finished. We really enjoyed the common spirit and the new things we learnt. We are especially proud for the media recognition by a Greek newspaper and a TV channel. Most of all, we hold fond memories of our friendship with the Romanian girls and their teacher, ms Carmen Radulescu. May we all meet in person one day!

So nice! Actually, it is a great idea. If we'll find a such a place in our school, we can promise to do an exhibit as well.
Tausend of kisses, dear friends!
