Excerpt From The Book

We left in pretty good time and came after nightfall to Klausenburgh. Here I stopped for the night at the Hotel Royale.

I had for dinner, or rather supper, a chicken done up some way with red pepper, which was very good but thirsty. (Mem., get the recipe for Mina.)

I asked the waiter, and he said it was called “paprika handle,” and that, as it was a national dish, I should be able to get it anywhere along the Carpathians.

I found my smattering of German very useful here; indeed, I don’t know how I should be able to get on without it.

Having had some time at my disposal when in London, I had visited the British Museum and made search among the books and maps in the library regarding Transylvania.

It had struck me that some foreknowledge of the country could hardly fail to have some importance in dealing with a nobleman of that country.

I find that the district he named is in the extreme east of the country, just on the borders of three states, Transylvania, Moldavia, and Bukovina, in the midst of the Carpathian mountains; one of the wildest and least known portions of Europe.

I was not able to light on any map or work giving the exact locality of the Castle Dracula, as there are no maps of this country as yet to compare with our own Ordnance Survey maps.

But I found that Bistritz, the post town named by Count Dracula, is a fairly well-known place.

I shall enter here some of my notes, as they may refresh my memory when I talk over my travels with Mina.

In the population of Transylvania, there are four distinct nationalities: Saxons in the South, and mixed with them the Wallachs, who are the descendants of the Dacians; Magyars in the West, and Szekelys in the East and North.
