(Liberal - a man with his mind open ... at both ends)
once belonged to the cruel 15th-century prince Vlad Tepes, who notoriously impaled his victims and inspired the character of Dracula in Bram Stoker's novels.
I believe old Vlad was cruel only toward the Muslim invaders.

That bites. Although the upkeep must be a cross to bear, I'd gravely consider selling it. The family must not have much stake in their history.

I was there some 20 year ago, and I do not think that any investor will make a decent ROI if the price tag is 75.6 million dollars. A lot of improvements and supplementary investments are needed. Maybe if the price is 1/10 of what they are asking.

Ya gotta give it to Ol Vlad. He knew how to deal with the Muslims. In the end, even he had to give it up.
Dracula means the "Son of the Dragon" I wonder how nasty his Ol man was. He was nasty because he was actually born into a poverty after they stripped authority from the family. So he went on his own personal crusade and gained it all back with vigor.
Nasty? I dunno, it seems as if they were all nasty back then if you dig into the history of the nobility in Europe and Russia..et al. Ivan the Terrible comes to mind.

" asking price was "indecent and exaggerated compared to the castle's real value.""
capitalism = free trade = my product is worth what I can get for it.
socialism = fair trade = my product is worth the work I put into it.
