Orava Castle, Slovakia

Built in the thirteenth century in response to Tartar raids, this stunning castle has a colourful history, but, as tends to happen when Hollywood scatters its stardust, it is better-known as a film location. Various scenes from Nosferatu, the first-ever Dracula movie, were shot here in 1922, with castle exteriors doubling for Dracula’s Castle in Transylvania. So why not film in Transylvania itself? Answers on the back of a postcard please!
