The tour guide will pick you up from your hotel and you will head first to Targoviste, the former capital of Wallachia province, to visit the Princely Court, the place where the Wallachian rulers used to reign for centuries.

After this, the trip will continue with the visit at an architectural masterpiece in Curtea de Arges, where you will have the chance to see the beautiful Curtea de Arges Monastery. Beyond the impressive and unique architectural style, the monastery boasts an interesting legend about the builder of the church and all he had to do so he could, eventually, finish the work.

The highlight of our trip will be Poienari Fortress, which is a special place, where you can get only after climbing the 1480 steps through the cool forest and once you reach the top you can enjoy the breathtaking scenery of the Carpathian Mountains and a glimpse of the popular Transfagasaran Road. Prepare to admire a remarkable scenery over the mountains and hear the tumultuous story of Vlad the Impaler, one of the most intriguing figures in our history.

Before getting back to Bucharest, you will stop at Vidraru Lake, an important construction from the communist period, placed next to the famous Transfagarasan Road, named by Top Gear as “the most beautiful road in the world”.
