ADDITIONAL INFO

Chindia Tower

     Dorind sa supravegheze cat mai bine  capitala Valahiei a acelor timpuri, Turnul Chindiei a fost construit in secolul  al XV-lea alaturi de Curtea Domneasca  din Targoviste de catre Vlad Tepes, in timpul celei de a doua din trei domnii.

     Reconsolidat si inaltat de domnitorul Grigore Bibescu in secolul al XIX-lea, acest turn  este un strajer al istoriei in centrul orasului Targoviste.

Castelul Peles

     Unul dintre cele mai spectaculoase castele din Europa, Castelul Peles impresioneaza prin arhitectura impresionanta, nivelul de detaliu al decorurilor amplasate si constuirea edificiului  intr-un cadru natural spectaculos.

     Palatul Peles a fost construit drept resedinta de vara pentru Regele Carol I al Romaniei  si avea scop cultural, administrativ si simbolic. A fost ridicat intre anii 1873 – 1914 pe un domeniu de 1000 de hectare, amplasate pe Mosia Sinaia sau, cum mai era numita,  Piatra Arsa. Autorii arhitecturii grandioase au fost Karel Liman  si Johannes Schultz.
