The first documentation about Bran Castle appeared in 1377. Throughout history, the Castle had a strategic mission of acting as a border between Transylvania and Wallachia. First it was under the rule of the King of Hungary Sigismund of Luxemburg, then under the Romanian voievodes Mircea cel Batran and Vlad Tepes and later on it came under the jurisdiction of the City of Brasov. In 1912 it was donated by the municipality of Brasov to the Romanian royal family and so it became their residence.
