As new TV series, True Blood, hits our screen, bloody thirsty Vampires are sexier than ever. With this growing new fan base in mind, Aer Lingus gears up to launch one of its latest routes to Bucharest, home to Vlad Tepes, the inspiration behind Bram Stoker’s Dracula.
Over the Halloween period, Bucharest’s themed restaurant, Count Dracula Club, will eerily transform you back to the 15th Century. With three suitably decked out dining rooms aptly named the Medieval Room, the Transylvania Room and the Hunting Salon, and Dracula also making an appearance.
For the more daring, there’s Counts Challenge, Romania’s first interactive medieval theme park. Go into battle with the Knights of the Transylvanian Order, horse rescue a maiden in distress or join the dark side and turn into a Vampire Knight.
Bucharest is also fast becoming popular with London clubbers for an alternative ‘city clubbing’ destination. With late night bars, top DJ’s headlining every month, no licensing hours, and considerably cheaper entrance fees, Bucharest is the perfect clubbers paradise, on a budget.
Aer Lingus Corporate Affairs Director, Enda Corneille, says: “As one of the largest cities in Eastern Europe, Bucharest is rich in culture, buzzing with trendy nightclubs and bars and a history that has inspired one of the best horror stories.”
Bucharest is just one of five new Aer Lingus winter routes to launch at London Gatwick on 25th October. Aer Lingus now flies to Eindhoven, Warsaw, Tenerife and Lanzarote, in addition to Vilnius, Malaga, Faro, Dublin, Knock, Vienna, Zurich and Munich.
