The old gate of the city worth to be seen in your way to the other tourist attractions. It is easy to find it because the road from Bucharest goes straight to it. Maybe for romanians it will be better to apreciate their history even...More

The Bucharests' Gate is a gate that marks the former entrance in the city, today standing like a landmark that is forgotten, as you can't visit it inside and there are a lot of rubbish around it. Actually, it's hard to reach it as you...More

Like other reviews have stated, this isn't really a tourist attraction as yet but it is something that you will pass on your way into or out of Targoviste on the way to Bucharest. The gate is an impressive building on the way into town...More

This is Not a turistic attraction. This is not an historic monument. You can't visit it and it should not be listed here. So, if you are passing by, just don't pay attention to this gate. It's built in around 1980, above a dirty passage

Not too many things to say about this gate. It was probably part of the city wall ages ago. As can be expected you will see it on the way to Bucharest.

Firstly: this is located in the middle of a road. Secondly: there's no safe way to reach it...the only way you can approach it is crossing the street ilegally!! And, finally, if you somehow manage to reach it...surpriseee, there's nothing to be seen. It is...More

An old historical place, unfortunately not suitable for visiting. Despite the place is visible, it is not well preserved and you cannot visit it.

Bucharests' Gate is not a touristic attraction in Targoviste. It's rather a monument.. However, it doesn't have any touristic potential. So don't visit it becuase you don't have what to visit...

You don't really know if this is an turistic atraction or not. No indication, no identifying plates, no history of the place showed on vue.Rather an "not like this" turistic atraction example.

It is the first contact with you dear traveller when you reach the former capital of Wallachia coming from Bucharest. It is the first "Bastion" that kept the enemies outside the walls if they were coming with no peaceful thoughts. And stands from middle ages...More
