Easter traditions at Dracula’s Castle in Transylvania this April

Those who plan to visit the Bran Castle (also known as Dracula’s Castle) in Transylvania this April will have the chance to see and enjoy several local Easter traditions.

From April 2 to April 23, the castle will host presentations of traditional costumes from Gabriel Boriceanu ethnographic collection, and an exhibition of old photos depicting local customs and traditions. Also, some rooms will be arranged to look like peasant interiors from Mateias village, reports local Agerpres.

“On the first day of Easter, the ensemble from Mateias village will perform the “great dance”, an ancient custom, which marks the Resurrection of Christ and the rebirth of nature. The inhabitants of Mateias village, which is located at the junction between three ethnographic areas – Tara Oltului, Tara Barsei, and Rupea area, know a wide range of customs and traditions,” according to a statement from the castle’s management.

Also in the first day of Easter, a bunny will give chocolate eggs to children in the castle’s music hall, and an egg hunt will be organized in the Royal Park.
