Originally built as a fortress in the 14th century to protect against invading Ottoman Turks, Bran Castle is located near Brasov on a cliff and attracts over 500,000 tourists a year. Having had a string of owners, from Saxons to Hungarians, Bran was a gift to Queen Marie (the last Queen consort of Romania and granddaughter of Queen Victoria). When she died in 1938, Bran was given to her daughter Princess Ileana, who was then forced to leave in 1948 when Communists took over.
Once the Iron Curtain fell, the property was given back and Ileana's son Dominic (along with his sisters Maria Magdalena and Elizabeth) have been running it since. According to the Daily Mail, now that they're all in their 70s, the siblings are looking for someone new to take over and keep Bran thriving.
