Infamous 13th-century palace near Brasov has a long list of previous owners: from Saxons to Teutonic knights.

According to the Daily Telegraph , the castle is now owned by the descendants of Britain’s Queen Victoria ( three siblings in their 70s with the last name “Habsburg”) after it was restored to their control following the collapse of communism. The main problem of the 57-room, 22-acre castle is the lack of lavatories and bathrooms. These are provided for the visitors, but were ripped out of the residential part of the castle by the communist regime. Each year 560,000 people pay £4 to visit the fortress.
The sale is handled by New York-based law firm Herzfeld and Rubin.
