You have to climb its stairs, for the view from the top, for the history it tells and because it is the most important symbol of the town.

The tower is part of a sight that also houses the princely court and church. Admission is fair, but one has to pay extra for taking pictures. Nice stroll through the grounds and through the ruins. Certainly worth a visit

It is an important attraction point of Târgoviște, built in the period of Vlad Țepeș. From this point you can have a very nice panoramic view of the city and also of the Chindia Park.

From Bucharest, you have either trains or buses. The site is inside the city and is easy to find.
