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 travellers, who arrived in Wallachia for a variety of purposes were hosted here too.
The 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 Ceausescu and his wife were sentenced and assassinated in 1989. The rooms of the museums have been designed to look like in December 1989.
