Discover the beautiful surroundings of Bucharest and visit three of its most important sites: Mogosoaia Palace, Snagov Monastery and Caldarusani Monastery.
Begin in Snagov, which is located on an island in the Northern part of Snagov Lake. Visit Snagov Monastery, one of the most popular tourist destinations in Bucharest, where you can see the grave of the cruel voivod, known as Dracula.
Next, explore Caldarusani Monastery which is located also on the shore of a lake surrounded by a beautiful forest. Built in the XVIIth century by Matei Basarab, it is one of the largest and oldest Orthodox Monasteries in the Wallachia historical region.
Finally, stop at Mogosoaia Palace, a monumental building featuring unique architecture called Brancovenesc style which is a Romanian Renaissance architectural style consisting of a mixture of Venetian and Ottoman elements.
The Palace was built by the ruler Constantin Brancoveanu in 1702 for his elder son. After more than 200 years, it was renovated starting with 1912 by Martha Bibescu becoming a meeting place for the members in the high-level society. At the end of the Second World War, after 1945, the palace was nationalized by the Communist Party. In the present, the palace hosts the Museum of Brancoveanu Art and it is an important tourist attraction.
