What to Expect
Your first stop on this tour, the Snagov 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 also made 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. Snagov Monastery is one of the most popular tourist destinations - especially for foreign tourists coming to Bucharest - as they can see the place where the cruel voievod, known as Dracula, is  supposedly buried.

The Caldarusani Monastery is located also on the shore of a lake surrounded by a beautiful forest. It was built in the XVIIth century by Matei Basarab and it represents one of the largest and oldest Orthodox Monasteries in Wallachia historical region. The church shelters an impressive collection of religious artifacts and books. The icons are very beautiful, six of them being painted by the most important Romanian painter, Nicolae Grigorescu.

Next you will, travel to Mogosoaia and admire the beautiful scenery of the forest and the countryside on the way.

After about 45 minutes of driving from Caldarusani Monastery, you will reach Mogosoaia Palace, a monumental building with a 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, renovations began in 1912 by Martha Bibescu and it became a meeting place for the members of high level society. At the end of the Second World War, after 1945, the palace was nationalized by the Communist Party. Now, the palace hosts the Museum of Brancoveanu Art and is an important tourist attraction.

After the visit to Mogosoaia Palace you will head to back to Bucharest to be dropped off at your hotel.
