The most famous vampire is Vlad Tepes, a bloodthirsty Romanian ruler, believed to be the basis for Dracula. Dracula wasn't the first vampire book, but certainly the most famous.

Where did Bram Stoker learn of him and what of vampire lore... well you'll learn it all here on this learning walk as well as other causes of the myth of the undead. The walk also reveals the famous cemetery and the remains of a nearby house where the vampire was allegedly destroyed and hear of the British Occult Society.
