Introducing Curtea de Argeş

Curtea de Argeş has a humble, likeable charm, enriched by the captivating treasures left over from town's role as a Wallachian capital in the 14th century. St Nicholas Church in the former Princely Court is a must-see and considered to be one of the oldest monuments preserved in its original form in the country. The town's storied cathedral, sculpted from white stone, is unique for the important royal tombs it hides and its chocolate-box architecture. In addition, the town is a gateway to the Făgăraş Mountains and just a short bus ride away from the 'real' Dracula's castle.
