See & Do in Romania: the sunset in Vlad Tepes’ Sunset Tower

Located only 80 km away from Bucharest, the capital of Romania, Targoviste was the capital of Wallachia and an important economic, military, political, cultural and religious center of the country. The Royal Court was built during the reign of Mircea cel Batran time (14th century). Vlad Tepes built Turnul Chindiei, during the 15th century (Sunset Tower - they say that at sunset the gates of the city were closed and nobody was allowed to walk or make fires during the night, and the tower was the place where the signal was given). After wondering through the Royal Court ruins, you can climb the 122 steps to the top of the tower and get a nice view over the old city and its surroundings. The actual shape of the tower is not the original one, Gherghe Bibescu being the one who restored it in the 19th century.

The best time to visit is, of course, at sunset...
