Transylvanian Society of Dracula

What is the TSD?

The Transylvanian Society of Dracula (TSD) was formed in Romania in 1991, following the fall of Communism. It is an international, non-profit organization dedicated to the study of both Count Dracula of fiction and Vlad (Tepes) Dracula of history. There are chapters of the TSD throughout Romania and the rest of Europe.

The TSD in Romania hosts an annual Symposium and World Dracula Congresses. Its official travel agency – Company of Mysterious Journeys – offers Dracula tours in Romania. TSD members come from all walks of life: scholars, writers, artists, film buffs, tourism officials, students, computer programmers, home-makers, librarians, etc., all united by a common interest in the myth and the history of Dracula. The TSD President is Dr. Anne DeLong, Professor of English at Kutztown University.

TSD applicants must be at least 18 years of age.

Note: The TSD does not direct its programs at practicing vampires or aspiring vampires.
