Full description
Embark on a guided walking tour of the captivating monasteries of Romania's Curtea de Arges. One of the oldest towns in Wallachia, Curtea de Arges rests on the bank of the Arges River. A former capital of a small local state, the city was crucial in the unification of the lands south of the Carpathians, and its oldest archeological evidence dates back to the 13th century. As you begin your walking tour through the ancient city, stop to admire the austere exterior of the Prince Church, and then head within to witness its breathtaking interior. Entirely decorated with painted frescoes, the artworks are the first examples of Romanian painting dating back to the 14th century. Continue the tour with visits to the Old Court ruins, the beautiful Episcopal Church, and the unique Olari Church. Enjoy a delicious traditional Romanian meal at the best restaurant in Curtea de Arges to end the tour.
