The communism museum
The Communist Museum was inaugurated in September 2013 at the former military unit at Targoviste Train Station where the Ceausescu wives were executed in December 1989. The official name of the Museum is the Metamorphosis of a Place of Memory and serves as a museum point of the Targoviste Court. The museum’s rooms were arranged to look like in December 1989. Visitors can see the room where the Ceausescu wives were judged and the wall where they were shot. In the 1990s, the wall was plastered, but there still can be seen bullets in some places. Since the inauguration of the museum, foreign televisions have wanted to film Ceausescu’s execution site.
The Chindia Tower
The Chindia Tower is a tower in the CurteaDomnească monuments ensemble in Târgovişte, Romania, built in the 15th century. The tower was begun during the second reign of Prince Vlad III the Impaler over Wallachia and took its final form during the 19th century. It initially had a military purpose, but during its history, it has been used as a guard point, a fire spotter, and for storing and protecting the state treasury
The Chindia Tower, the most important tourist attraction in Târgovişte, is considered the city’s symbol; the tower elements are present in the city’s emblem, at the top and also at the bottom. As a monument the tower now houses an exhibition of documents, weapons and objects which belonged to Vlad the Impale
