Atentie: Sub pietre se pot ascunde serpi sau scorpioni.

[EN] Ruins of medieval citadel TURNU
Pay attention: Scorpions or snakes can hide under rocks.

[RO] Ruinele cetatii medievale Turnu se afla în partea de sud a municipiului Turnu Magurele la o distanta de 4 km de oras si la 1 km de confluenta fluviului Dunarea cu Oltul. Cetatea ridicata de catre Mircea cel Batrân este amintita documentar între anii 1393-1394. La sfârsitul domniei lui Mircea, cetatea a intrat sub stapânire otomana, fiind transformata mai târziu în raia turceasca.
Desi se afla pe pamântul Tarii Românesti, facea parte din sangeacul Nicopolelui fiind un niyabet. Prin tratatul de pace de la Adrianopole (1829) se stabilea, între altele, ca raiaua Turnu sa fie parasita de catre turci si restituita Tarii Românesti.
Cetatea Turnu a fost darâmata, arsa, iar teritoriul fostei raiale a fost incorporat Tarii Românesti.

[EN] The ruins of the citadel are 4km south from Turnu Magurele and only 1 km away from confluence of Danube and Olt rivers. The citadel build by Mircea the Elder is mentioned in documents from 1393-1394. After Mircea's death, the citadel was under Turkish possession. Adrianopol Peace treaty (1829) established that Turks should retreat from Turnu district and this return to Walachia. Turnu citadel was destroyed, burned and the territory of old district has been incorporated in Walachia.
