Throughout the ages, this portion of Europe had been
at the mercy of East and West, North and South.
During Dracula's time, South Eastern Europe was
ravaged by the relentless wars and battles against The
Ottoman Empire which was trying to take revenge after the bloody
crusades against the Muslim world (1100-1300) carried out by the
Western European countries and "their" knights.
The Ottomans (Turks) got as far as Vienna, Austria at one point.
The Eastern European countries (present day Greece, Bulgaria, Serbia, Macedonia, Romania,
Hungary, Moldova, Poland) acted as a
shield for Western Europe.
