IntroductionThis city along the Ialomita River is noted for a 15th-century monastery and a 16th-century church. However, it is especially noted for the ruins of Vlad Dracul's palace and an eerie-looking watchtower. Also worth seeing is the statue of Vlad Dracul in the park. If you have time, make an excursion west to Curtea de Arges, which has two fine churches that are worth seeing. It is the burial place of the Romanian royal family from the German Hohenzollern dynasty. Otherwise, you can see Tirgoviste as a day trip from Bucharest. 45 mi/70 km northwest of Bucharest.
