The 300 year old palace was built by Prince Constantin Brâncoveanu for one of his sons in a strategic location, halfway between Bucharest and the old capital of Wallachia, Târgovişte. The whole ensemble is representative for the Brâncovenesc style with balconies decorated with floral elements and arcades supported by columns. Here you can also visit the Saint Dumitru Church built in 1683.
