Well you people don't understand what i mean to say.I'm asking if you people can tell what difference is there betwwen dracula and vampire.Are they both the same things or different.hope someone gives me the correct answer.
A vampire is a type of bat that sucks blood from mammals.
Dracula was the name of a legendary Transylvanian feudal lord. A fictional horror story was written about this person, in the late 1800s by Bram Stoker I think, in which Dracula sucked peoples blood. Bram Stoker called him "Count Dracula the chief of vampires", meaning the chief of all those which suck mammal blood.
So yes, there is a difference. A vampire is a type of bat, Count Dracula is a fictional character, and Dracula was a legendary Transylvanian aristocrat.

dracula IS a VAMPIRE. Dracula was just a NAME for a vampire.
It's the same difference as the one between "president" and "George Washington" or between "monarch" and "Queen Elizabeth I" or between "television show" and "CSI: Miami." The first is the larger category and the second is ONE example of something in that category.

If you wish to use Dracula, use a capital D - it's a proper name.
Grammar Geek is the name of a person. English forums is the name of a website. Dracula is the name of a vampire.

You can't ask what is the difference between Dracula and vampire any more than you can ask what is the difference between Grammar Geek and a person, or English Forums and a website.There isn't a 'difference' between the words.
