This is one of the important places in Romania, as the traditional ruling coury of Wallachia's rulers. The ruins are inspiring, perhaps more effort could be put in how the display is done - more visual, storytelling and interesting. The church is very interesting with...More

The site is worth seeing when you visit the city. It can be seen from Chindia tower as well but also from the ground.

I visited the city and the complex of buildings, the court, church and tower. Very interesting, well preserved. While visiting we got caught by a summer rain and took cover in the dungeons.

Lovely court with plenty spots to enjoy for art and history as well as architecture lovers. Especially The Great Princely Church and The Chindia tower are allowing one to feel the spirit of old times in Danubian Principalities. Great place indeed.

The overall complex of the Old Court Ruins, Princely Court, Princely Church and the Tower are well worth the 10 Lei entry fee, however the Old Court Ruins themselves needs a little more explaining. You can walk down into the ruins and along the side...More
