Castle Dracula for sale
While not an independent mini-state like Sealand, which is also on the market, at least you can drive a car up to the front door of this 14th Century Transylvanian castle. It is for sale by the New York City heir who only recently came into possession after communist takeover in 1948. The New York Sun reports that the current owner was 10 years old when his family was forced from the country by the communists. He has lived in America for the past 8 years. Reuters reports the local government is taking the owner up on an offer of first refusal and wants to buy the tourist attraction.
