Highlights
    What to Expect
    At 9 AM you will be picked up from your hotel from Pitesti. Our first stop will be at Curtea de Arges Monastery. After that we will go at Poienari Village, where the ruins of Vlad the Impaler's Castle is. After visiting, we will go at Vidraru, where we will have also a lunch break, at a traditional local cuisine restaurant (vegetable dishes are also available). In the evening we will ride you back at your hotel.

    At each sight we will spent enough time to visit also the surroundings. Our guide will tell you how much time is recommended to spent but the final decision will be yours - you decide how much time to spent at each sight.

    Curtea de Arges Monastery - Maybe is the only one monastery from Romania which is more about the legends than religion. The legend of the pregnant women trapped inside the walls and the death of master Manole who tried to fly with wooden wings are probably the most known legends about this monastery. Find out the other legends about this place and the tombs of the greatest kings of Romania (which are inside the monastery), such as Carol I, the founder of Sinaia Castle.

    The Ruins of Poienari Citadel or The Ruins of Vlad the Impaler's Citadel - (Vlad the Impaler - the medieval Romanian ruler whose image is associated with Count Dracula). Be aware: From the bottom of the hill to up where the ruins are, you have to step more than 1.400 medieval stairs. Is not hard, really! We need like 30 minutes for all of them. But even so, we do not recommend this tour for pregnant women or for those with medical problems.

    Vidraru Dam - Situated in one of the most beautiful and wild areas from Carpathian Mountains, Vidraru Dam is the highest one from Romania and one of the highest from Europe!
