Bucharest is indeed a fascinating city for anyone crossing its borders. But there is more to see here then just the old town. We invite you on a discovery trip right next to capital city, where more beautiful sights and attractions await, such as the enchanting Palace from Mogosoaia, or the silent and modest monastery of Snagov…
At 8:00 a.m. we will start our journey towards the exciting surroundings of Bucharest City.
We start our journey with the fascinating Mogoșoaia Palace, placed outside the city, in a beautiful area. The Palace is the best example of Brâncoveanu Architecture, a style very much spread arround Wallachia Region. The Palace was built by the ruler Constantin Brancoveanu in 1702. After the execution of Constantin Brancoveanu in Constantinople in 1714, the palace continues to be own by the family and it was renovated starting with 1912. In the present, the palace hosts the Museum of Brancoveanu Art and it is an important tourist attraction.
Then we move on towards one of the most famous sights in Romania and the place where Dracula is supposed to be buried - Sangov Monastery. The Monastery is located on an island in the northern part of Snagov Lake. The monastery was built by Mircea the Elder (the grandfather of the famous Dracula) who made also the first documentary attestation of this church in 1408. During its history, the monastery was rebuilt by Vlad the Impaler and some other rulers of Wallachia. It has been one of the strongest fortified churches and maybe the richest in Wallachia for a long time in the Medieval Period.
