A 1922 black-and-white German Expressionist horror film, directed by F. W. Murnau, “Nosferatu” was an unauthorized take on Bram Stoker’s “Dracula”, and one of the first depictions of vampires on film. The setting of the tale is Transylvania, a region of the Carpathian Mountains found in Romania, now well-linked to vampires in popular lore largely thanks to film adaptations of Bram Stoker’s work. Reportedly, the fictional location of Count Orlock’s castle can be found in an eastern section of the Carpathian Mountains known as Călimani Mountains. The mountains encompass over 2,500 square miles, and are the largest volcanic complex of the Carpathians. Forests of beech, spruce and cade juniper can be found covering the range, with a variety of other flora as well. No crumbling castles full of decrepit Transylvanian royalty with a predilection for sleeping underground have been seen since the time of Vlad the Impaler, but if you feel a prick on your neck while hiking through, don’t take my word for it.
