Here’s how Professor Duncan Light from Liverpool Hope University describes us:
Your company is one of the few that understands the Western market for Dracula.
Your product appears to be very innovative!
For many Romanians Dracula means Vlad Tepes but for people from the UK, America
etc. it means of course the vampire Dracula.
I agree with those people who say that Dracula is a way to get foreign tourists into
Romania creating an opportunity to show them all the other things the country can
