Its construction started in the beginning of the 13th century, with the purpose to serve as citadel for the rulers of Wallachia, however in the 14th century it was left in ruins but it had been repaired and consolidated one hundred years later by Vlad the Impaler in order to be used as a fortress further on. There are 1480 steps to climb in order to reach the citadel; so it might be challenging for some people, but the view from the top is highly rewarding for all.
