Princely Church Tours

The Princely Church in Curtea de Arges is one of the most important examples of medieval architecture south of the Carpathians in Romania. Built in the shape of a Greek cross with a dome resting on four pillars, the church is also the oldest Orthodox church in the region. The exterior of the church is notable for its alternating stone and brick layers, while the inside is home to what are possibly the oldest surviving examples of Romanian painting. The several hundred Byzantine style paintings date back to the 14th century and include a depiction of a pregnant Virgin Mary. Another highlight of the church is the tomb of Romanian ruler Radu I Basarab, which features a glass pane through which visitors can see the remains of his garments adorned with gold and precious stones.

Practical Info

The Princely Church is across the street from the Parcul San Nicoara in the center of Curtea de Arges, a short walk from the main train station. Curtea de Arges is 150 kilometers from Bucharest (about a two-hour drive), making a long day trip possible.
