Romanian church leaders say Dracula theme park hurts country’s image

WARSAW, Poland (CNS) — Church leaders in Romania are warning against attempts to relocate a planned $32 million Dracula theme park, saying the park would present an inaccurate image of the country. The park was planned for the country’s Transylvania region, but Romanian officials announced in early February that the park would be built at a lakeside resort north of Bucharest, near the burial site of Vlad the Impaler, the real-life Romanian prince who inspired the vampire myth. “The Catholic and Orthodox churches hold the same views about this project, which won’t give a good image of Romania,” Archbishop Ioan Robu of Bucharest told Catholic News Service in a telephone interview. “If the government wants to build such a park in future, it should think carefully about the kind of picture it’s presenting of our country.” The archbishop spoke after officials canceled plans for the 260-acre theme park near the medieval town of Sighisoara in Transylvania.
