      Bucharest – Targoviste Royal Court – Poenari Castle

      Breakfast: At the hotel The tour from Bucharest continues with a trip to Targoviste, the former capital of Wallachia. Targoviste served as a Saxon colony throughout the 13th century, and due to its economic growth, it became a secondary residence for Wallachian princes during the 14th century.  
The Royal court was moved from Curtea de Arges to Târgoviște in 1431, and it was refurbished continuously over the years. The princely court was rather small before Vlad the Impaler restructured it to stand against enemy attacks, later on constructing the Tower of Chindia. In 1395, the city was attacked and set on fire by Bayezid I, and in 1462 the Ottoman invasion was only stopped from reaching the town by Vlad the Impaler's Night Attack.  Targoviste city tour, together with Princely Church and Chindia Tower, is an introduction into the life and background of Vlad Tepes.  *In the wintertime (November to July), the trip to Poenari  Castle and Transfagarasan Highway will be replaced with a visit to Curtea de Arges Monastery and overnight in Sibiu.  Lunch: At your expense 
Next on, you will head to Poenari Fortress built in the 13th century. It was restored by Vlad the Impaler and became one of his main fortresses. The citadel is located at an altitude of over 800 m, and to reach it, there are more than 1400 steps to climb. Often called Vlad Tepes’s "Eagle's Nest," the fortress has been a strategic point thanks to its location.  *Due to renovations, Poienari Fortress is closed and cannot be visited until 2024
