Here are some great views taken in the Romanian mountains, while filming with National Geographic, several months ago. The pictures were taken from the Romanian King Vlad the Impaler fortress at Poenari and you can see there one of the most beautiful mountain road in Europe, the Transfagarasan.
The story of Vlad the Impaler is one of the most fascinating stories in the Middle Ages. The NatGeo documentary film tries, in the beginning, to separate the fiction – the Bram Stoker’s character Dracula- from the historical reality – the Romanian King Vlad Tepes (Vlad the Impaler). In the end, it profiles the Romanian king, looking into the political reality of his time and describing his cruel method of punishment, the impaling, with a psychological approach on it.
The documentary will be broadcasted in March, part of the “Bloody Tales of Europe” TV series, on NatGeo channel.
