About Mogosoaia Palace
After about one hour of driving to the north of Bucharest we will reach Mogosoaia Palace, a monumental building having a unique architecture called Brancovenesc architecture 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. After the execution of Constantin Brancoveanu in Constantinople in 1714, the palace continues to be own by the family, but it passed a decline during the Ottoman rule period. It was renovated starting with 1912 by Martha Bibescu becoming a meeting place for the members in the high level society. During the Second World War, the palace has been also a meeting place for the Allied diplomats. 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.

After the visit to Mogosoaia Palace we head to Snagov Monastery which takes about one hour of driving.

About Snagov Monastery
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 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. Snagov Monastery was also an important cultural center, running here one of the first printing house of Wallachia.

Snagov Monastery is one of the most popular tourist destination especially for the foreign tourists coming in Bucharest.

In the end of the tour, driving back to Bucharest.

*Please note that the time table is subjected to changed due to heavy city traffic and road works.
