Curtea de Arges

Curtea de Arges ©
Curtea de Argeș is a city in Romania on the right bank of the Argeş River, where it flows through a valley of the lower Carpathians (the Făgăraș Mountains), on the railway from Pitești to the Turnu Roșu Pass. Your inner history buff will appreciate Mănăstirea Curtea de Argeș and Cozia Monastery. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Curtea de Arges: Cetatea Poienari (in Arefu), Avincis - Vila Dobrusa Vineyard (in Dragasani) and Biserica Horezu (in Horezu). The adventure continues: admire the engineering at Vidraru Dam, ponder the design of Musical fountains, make a trip to Transfagarasan Highway, and pause for some serene contemplation at The wooden church of Horea.
