Actually, this castle is often erroneously referred to as the home of the title character in Bram Stoker's Dracula. There is no evidence that Stoker knew anything about this castle, which has only tangential associations with Vlad the Impaler, voivode of Wallachia, the putative inspiration for Dracula. In fact Stoker's description of Dracula's crumbling fictional castle also bears no resemblance to Bran Castle.
