    Dracula's Second Home in Turda-The Legend Lives On


    On a short trip to the old town of Turda, I visited a hotel tucked away in the center which revers both the hunter and the hunted.  The decor was decked out with furs, skins, weapons, stones, masks, carvings and anything and everything you'd love to have stuffed or dressed.  The restaurant serves game meats and fowl, some with fruits, and there's a nice selection of other items to complement your meal. The service and atmosphere are pretty great when you're in the mood for something different.  The famed impaler's banquet room was fit for a king and the hospitality was wonderful, thanks to Ioana who was our concierge for the day.  The rooms were comfortable and each had it's own personality. There's an outdoor patio and they can accommodate larger parties and special events.  This hotel was fairly reasonable by American standards along with the amenities you'd expect from a Romanian-style experience.  We never saw hide nor hair of Dracula, but I did think that I'd seen a reflection in one of those mirrors in the hall.  Oh, well, I guess my imagination in Transylvania was at it again!
