Look at some of the terrific destinations that may call to you and see what monsters you may find there.
1. Verify Vampires in the Balkans
The world has many places to hunt for monsters but you may want to start your journey in the Balkans. After all, it was here, in the Romanian province of Transylvania, that the most famous bloodsucker of them all had his castle. However, since Count Dracula did turn to dust in the end, you’ll probably have more success heading southward if you want to encounter a real vampire. The word ‘vampire’ comes from Serbia and this is one country that seems to be teeming with the creatures, if the stories of Petar Blagojevic, Arnold Paule and Sava Savanovic are anything to go by. Don’t think that sunlight will do them any harm, however. The places thought to be inhabited by more vampires than anywhere else are the sunny Greek islands of Santorini, Thirassia and Kameni.
