Dating from the 14th century, the remains of the former princely court (Curtea veche) are the oldest monument in Bucharest. The complex was in the heart of the medieval city. It was during the reign of the Wallachian voivode Vlad Ţepeş (who inspired the figure of Dracula), between 1456 and 1462, but above all during the reign of Constantine Brâncoveanu (1688-1714) that the princely residence had its greatest influence. Damaged by fires and earthquakes, the prestigious buildings were gradually abandoned at the end of the 18th century.
