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

Being one of the most spectacular castles in Europe, Peles Castle dazzles tourists with its impressive architecture, amazing details of décor elements and a truly spectacular natural setting.

     Peles Castle was built to become the summer residence of King Carol I of Romania and had cultural, administrative and symbolic purpose. It was built between 1873 and 1914 on a 1000 hectares domain, situated on Sinaia Estate or, as it was called then, Piatra Arsa Estate. The grandiose architecture is the work of Karel Liman and Johannes Schultz
