Full description
By taking this private tour, you will have the chance to visit the famous old royal residence where Vlad Tepes ruled. Here, you will greet a piece of history by discovering that a battle took place between Vlad Tepes (Dracula) and Mehmed II the Sultan of the Ottoman Empire - who was defeated.

In honor of this victory, Vlad Tepes decided to build Chindia Tower, one of the important attractions of Targoviste today. During this tour, you will experience the intensity and tension of the last days of Communism by visiting the military unit where the former Communist dictator Nicolae Ceausescu was judged and executed with his wife Elena Ceausescu in 1989.
