Did Elon Musk throw a Halloween party in a Transylvania castle?


The richest person in the world, and the new owner of Twitter, Elon Musk, has reportedly hosted a Halloween party at Bran Castle, in Romania.

The Tesla and SpaceX founder is reported to have invited billionaires and celebrities to a Halloween party at Dracula’s Castle.

This weekend, the entrepreneur has reportedly been enjoying a weekend in Transylvania and has hired a director to put together a special Dracula experience for his guests.

But, did Elon Musk really throw a Halloween party at Bran Castle, and, if he did, who was on the exclusive guest list?

Here’s everything you need to know.

According to the Romanian publication Romania Journal, Musk hosted a Halloween party at Bran Castle, in Transylvania.

It’s alleged that some of the world’s richest billionaires joined Musk at the castle in Brasov, which is known as Dracula’s Castle, due to its connection with Vlad the Impaler.

On Saturday, 29 October, Musk took to Twitter, and said: “Fresh baked bread & pastries are some of the great joys of life”.

This was in turn interpreted by the publication Romanian Insider as Musk enjoying Romanian bread and pastries, which are traditionally given to guests as a welcome.

Romanian media outlet Media Flux reports that Musk rented the entire castle for himself and his friends to enjoy, with guests rumoured to be in attendance including PayPal co-founder Peter Thiel, Google’s co-founders Sergei Brin and Larry Page and Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie.

Elsewhere, Swedish actress Julia Sanstrom was also rumoured to be present, after she shared stories of herself in Transylvania, and dressed as a vampire on her Instagram.

Other Romanian media outlets reported that Dracula’s Girls, a well-known cheerleader group from Târgoviște will also be present, but full details, and what happened, are not yet revealed.

Bran Castle is one of Romania’s most famous landmarks, and it was built in 1388 and is located 30 km from the town of Brasov.

The castle is best known for the legend of Count Dracula, taken from the novel of Bram Stoker, whose character is a Transylvanian Count, with a castle perched on a rock, that overlooks a valley.

As a popular tourist destination, the castle was initially known as Turciu, and after the second world war, communist authorities turned it into a museum.
