In the same place as the Curtea de Arges Cathedral, it's really pretty to walk around. Doesn't take long, and it also has a nice history.

Very nice and clean location, amazing park and churches! These locations are full of history behind but of course , very little explained. Tombs of Romanian kings , Manole's fountain, a lot of small restaurants, souvenirs shops.. Just a pleasant visit!

Don't forget to buy tickets in the shop at the entrance. The park is free and is beautifully maintained and colourful.

We rented a car. That way you can visit the beautiful sites along the way, once you get out of the Bucharest area.
