Târgovi?te, the capital of Dâmbovi?a County is located on the lalomi?a River’s right bank. Târgovi?te possesses an interesting heritage and quite a few attractions in the form of monuments and buildings. With Henri Coanda International Airport at Bucharest about 91 km away, tourists have the option of flying in on any of the cheap flights to Târgovi?te or availing the excellent road and rail connectivity.
The immense heritage is perhaps what most tourists arriving on the cheap flights to Târgovi?te look forward to exploring, besides the many scenic spots and resorts in the picturesque valleys of Dimbovita and Ialomita that are simply great for a relaxing holiday. First mentioned in written documentation in 1396, Târgovi?te assumed great importance when it became the capital of Wallachia region but lost its position of pre-eminence with Bucharest becoming the national capital; however, modern-day tourists can still find interesting evidence of its hoary past in the form of charming buildings and museums.
One of the best-preserved monuments is the National Museum Complex, popularly known as the Royal Court, having been used as a royal residence and court for more than 300 years. The complex houses Târgovi?te’s best tourist symbol, the Chindia Tower that was built by Vlad Tepes, better known as Count Cracula. Situated at the end of a picturesque cobblestone alley, Chindia Tower possesses a graceful silhouette; climbing up the 122 steps to the top affords the most wonderful panoramic view of the city and the surrounds. Also within the complex are attractions such as the Great Royal Church, the Royal Palace, Balasa House and St. Friday Church besides the History Museum that is a rich repository of artefacts testifying the region’s grand heritage. It is possible to get a great insight into Romanian culture with a visit to The Museum of Printing and Old Romanian Books; founded in the 17th century, the building housed the nation’s first typographical centre. The Museum of Dambovita Writers has a lot of historically-significant manuscripts and documents.
There is no lack of dining options for hungry souls; many restaurants serve delectable Romanian dishes, several hotels in Târgovi?te have great bars where you can relax in the evening.
