Curtea Veche

Bucharest, Romania
3.8 / 13
The former residence of the princes of Wallachia, which at the same time served as a defensive fortress. The complex was built in the XIV century, but soon fell into decay and collapsed. The fortress entered its heyday under Vlad Tepes. The ruler expanded the territory and almost rebuilt the fortifications. At the end of the XVIII century, the rulers moved to another place, and the surrounding lands were sold to private individuals. Nowadays, the ruins of the fortress are recognized as a national monument.
