This trip is the perfect way to discover another interesting part of Romania and the real story of Vlad the Impaler, sometimes associated with count Dracula. The tour guide will pick you up at 08:00 am 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 an architectural masterpiece in Curtea de Arges, where you will have the chance to visit 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 that he could, eventually, finish the work.

Poenari Citadel is the next visit for which you will have to climb 1480 steps for about 20-30 minutes on a trek of aprox 1 km. Prepare to admire a remarkable scenery over the mountains and the 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”.
