Making Memories at the Poienari Citadel
The Poienari Citadel is the best documented and most legit site connected to the Wallachian prince. This evocative monument is proudly standing on the top of a cliff, at 25 kilometers north of Curtea de Arges small, coquette town. Vlad Tepes used this place as a fortress and a prison.
It’s a 1480 steps long journey that leads visitors towards the ultimate goal: Poenari. As you climb, you begin to discern the citadel’s silhouette, getting rid of the impression created by the distance — an eagle’s nest, hanging over the wild cliffs. The legends woven around this place, its eternal beauty and the wonderful surrounding scenery, urge travelers along the knowledge-filled hike that ultimately reveals this beautiful pile of rocks.
