The meeting with the group attendant will take place at 06.30, and the departure at 07:00. Follow the route Bucharest - Potlogi - Stefanesti - Golesti.
Potlogii is an emblem of the Brancoveanu style. Born as an artistic phenomenon of synthesis between local elements and those of both Eastern and Western influence, between tradition and artistic innovation, the Brancoveanu style has overcome over time. In 1698, Constantin Brâncoveanu founded, from the foundations, a royal court at Potlogi, in the center of which was the palace. The court of Potlogi, which the lord raises to the status of a dynastic royal court, was built for Constantine, the eldest son and the presumed heir to the country's throne. The monumental complex, which covers an area of 23,000 square meters, consisted of several elements: the entrance gate, the rooms of the guardhouse, the houses of the court servants, the cuhnia, the droşcăria, the old boyar house and, most importantly, the palace. Next to it is the church, also erected by the voivode, in 1683, when there was a large back. Today, the whole museum is declared a historical monument, and some of the buildings in the courtyard have been rebuilt.
Continue the route and take a break for lunch, then head to Stefanesti, visit the Florica Domain, consisting of mansion, farm, chapel, winery, train station and even an astronomical observatory, all located in the middle of a vast park, surrounded by vineyards . It is the work of the first two Brătieni, Ion and Ionel, father and son, who - being passionate builders, especially the last - transformed a chic estate administration house into a sumptuous aristocratic residence, where important decisions were made on the history Our. The house is documented in 1829. Located near the town of Ştefăneşti, Argeş County, the mansion of the Brătianu family, built in memory of his first daughter, is one of the most beautiful boyar estates in Romania, very well preserved to this day.
We are heading to the Golesti Domain. Also called the Golesti Museum or the Museum of Viticulture and Pomiculture Golesti, it is a building built in the seventeenth century around which there are many historical sites and gardens through which you can walk for a whole day, counting no less than 14 ha.
The mansion was built by Stroe Leurdeanu in 1640 and is surrounded by high brick walls for defense. It is the only fortified medieval secular building in the country and tells many of the stories of the Golescu family, a family in which Enlightenment ideas were born, which built the Royal Palace in Bucharest and reformed the education in Wallachia.
After the visit, return home on the Pitesti-Bucharest route, where you will arrive in the evening, depending on traffic.
