Social events are the glue that hold ISSWOV conference participants together. They represent the moments when friendships are rediscovered, or new ones are forged, when old memories are shared or when new ones are formed. Let's have a perfect mix of business and pleasure and enjoy the social events prepared by local organizers after a full day of conference presentations.

Experience the magic of this wonderful place
"We invite you to experience the history, the myth, the intrigue and the magic of this wonderful place and its Queen. We hope that you will carry the spirit that makes us love Bran Castle with you, always."
From July 2020, Bran Castle’s visitors are getting in touch with the characters of the night even during daytime! Those brave enough to face their fears are finding out, on the 4th floor, who the creatures of the night really are and what they do, through an exhibition entitled "A history of dreads in Transylvania". It is a foray into the history of local myths and fears (their symbols and significance) and the way they were reflected in the historiography of the 15th century, and then discovered and used by the Irish writer Bram Stoker in the 19th century, the one who created Count Dracula.
