Bran (a.k.a. Dracula's Castle) in Transylvania was the 15th-century home of Prince Vlad Tepes. He punished invaders by piercing them with wooden stakes and earned the name "Vlad the Impaler."

Prague's Old Jewish Cemetery contains more than 12,000 tombstones, with many additional bodies lurking beneath. The oldest grave dates back to 1493; the last burial took place in 1787.

Allegations that Alcatraz was escape-proof weren't exactly true. In the prison's 30 year history, 34 men attempted to escape in 14 incidents; 29 men were caught. The missing five were assumed dead, but their true fate is a mystery.

Some claim Stonehenge was an ancient temple. Others say it was an astronomical observatory for noting significant events. Another theory suggests it was burial place for the elite.

The tombs of King Tut, Ramses the Great, and 61 other pharaohs of ancient Egypt were usually constructed as soon as the kings ascended their thrones—the extensive labor required took decades.
