Built originally in the XIV-th century , serving as a look-out tower and having mainly military purposes - the "Sunset Tower" ("chindie" in the archaic Romanian means sunset) became nowadays a symbol of city of Targoviste.
Refurbished and its height extended to its current height in the XIX-th century and getting to the current shape.
Today when you visit the ruins of the "Royal court " of Targoviste it is a definite must that you check-out the tower also. Getting to the top is done by the means of stairs, so prepare to climb - is not an issue unless you have a medical condition.
For those of you with a passion for history (and/or architecture) it will be a very interesting spot, that is certain and if you are their with a guide it will a very good experience.

You definitely have to go there and I give you 3 reasons why:
1. The 360° view is superb
2. A little of this historical place never hurt anyone
3. There are a lot of stairs to climb. :)

Apart from the joy of a history of knowledge, one can pass, can have a wonderful overview in the courts. You can also have a great view on the city of Targoviste.
I recommend, it is worth it!

Worth a visit if your road takes you near Târgoviște. Ticket was 12 RON for an adult and 15 RON photography fee (September 2019). What I didn't like is that is that it lacked historical information on site. Also, the view from the top was not that great.

As the former capital of Romania, this place should be visited. It has nice view and full of information. Had Ceausescu not been killed, we might have had today Targoviste as the capital of Romania, since he was planning to do that.

Not worth the money. Entrance fee is exagerat for what is on offer. The site and the view from the tower is not really interesting.
