Continue on to Curtea de Arges for a visit to the monastery, built between 1512-1515, one of the outstanding churches in Romania, famous for its architecture, where, according to the legend, Master Manole, the builder, entombed his wife in the stone walls.

Travelling  north,  across  the  Olt  Pass  into  Transylvania, you'll reach  Sibiu  just  in  time  for  a  lavish dinner. Overnight in Sibiu.
