Environment, economics, kicks Dracula Park out of Transylvania
How soon the people of Sighisoara do forget. A Dracula theme park was planned outside of that city, the place where Vlad the Impaler was born, but was blocked for environmental reasons by local and international environmental groups. With the announcement that the new location for the Dracula theme park would be in the capital of Romania, Bucharest, because it would attract the most tourists there, people in Transylvania are outraged again, saying it will take away needed tourist dollars from the impovershed region. It seems that when it comes to something as important to the Romanian people as Vlad the Impaler and Dracula, you just can't make everyone happy.
