Description

You will have an opportunity to visit the Royal Court, which was conceived as a complex of buildings that served both as an administrative center of the country and as a dwelling for the ruler, his family, numerous courtiers, and servants. This was the place where conventions of the council, as well as important trials, were carried out and documents of the chancellery were issued. Guests and foreign travelers, who arrived in Wallachia for a variety of purposes were hosted here too. Museum complex “Royal Court” includes the following buildings: the Royal Court, the Chindia Tower, the Great Royal Church, the Foundation of Petru Cercel, „Sfânta Vineri” Church, Mrs. Bălașa’s House, the Old Chapel Church, the Royal Bathroom and the Gazebo.
You will also visit “Museum of Communism”, the place where the Ceausescu couple was sentenced and assassinated in 1989. Rooms of the museums have been designed to look like in December 1989. Visitors have access both to the room where the Ceausescus were judged and the wall where they were shot.
