OLD PRINCELY COURT
str. Franceza nr.27-31, Sector 3, Bucharest,
The Old Princely Court is located in centre of the city of Bucharest, Romania.
The first local place of residence was built during the rule of Vlad III Dracula in the 15th century and Radu cel Frumos moved the princely residence and the Wallachian capital to Bucharest. In the 16th century Mircea Ciobanul rebuilt it completely and afterward it became the nucleus of the Bucharest, being surrounded by the houses of traders and craftsmen.
Alexander Ypsilantis built a new princely court in 1775 at Dealul Spirii and the old one acquired its present name. Nowadays a museum, the palace and neighbourhood inspired Mateiu Caragiale to write his novel Craii de Curtea-Veche.
