Castle Dracula : Its Exact Location Reconstructed from Stoker's Novel, His Research Notes and Contemporary Maps
Munich, Germany.
2012 (Engelska)Rapport (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
Abstract [en]

Bram Stoker's novel Dracula was published in 1897. In ten weeks, the centenary of Stoker's death will be commemorated. Today, Dracula is one of the best-known narratives worldwide. Since the 1970's, a wealth of secondary literature has developed. Several annotated editions of the novel have been published, as well as Stoker's personal research notes. The location of the vampire's headquarters, Castle Dracula, however, could not be reconstructed until now. Rather, it is generally assumed Stoker had no exact position in mind while writing the story.

Based on the novel's travel descriptions, this paper will narrow down the Castle's territory with the help of modern satellite-based maps, interactive route navigators and high-resolution scans of contemporary military maps of Transylvania and Moldavia, until only two mountain peaks remain. An analysis of Stokers notes will reveal that Stoker's actually had one of these two peaks in mind while designing the final chapters of his book, but choose not to mention its name:

Mount Izvorul Călimanului, 2,033 m high, located in the Transylvanian Kelemen Alps near the border with Romania, at 47°08'03" North, 25°17'19" East.
