The medallion features a topographical map of the Transylvanian mountain range showing the location of Castle Dracula from Bram Stoker’s gothic horror classic, Dracula. A blood red stone marks the exact site of the castle as determined from Stoker’s notes for the novel: Mount Izvorul Călimanului, near the Borgo Pass. Stoker chose this location atop the barren caldera of an extinct volcano for a very particular reason—before it was edited for publication, Dracula originally ended with a volcano erupting and destroying the castle after the Count’s defeat: “From where we stood it seemed as if the one fierce volcano burst had satisfied the need of nature and that the castle and the structure of the hill had sunk again into the void.”
Details: The Dracula's Castle Map pendant is solid bronze or brass and the back is engraved with notes on the location - "Mount Izvorul Calimanului, located in the Transylvanian Kelemen Alps near the border of Moldavia, at 46 08' 03" North, 25 17' 19" East, 2,033 m high."
