Full description
Escape from the busy, crowded streets of Bucharest for a half day and get to know the much calmer countryside that surrounds the city. Unknown even to some people born and raised in Bucharest, discover 2 hidden gems just a few miles outside of city limits: Mogosoaia Palace and Snagov Monastery. After pickup in Bucharest, you’ll leave the city and head straight to the Palace of Mogosoaia. This place used to be a retreat for the rulers of the Romanians, and was designed in a Brancovenesc style. This quiet and majestic place will give you the feeling of going back in time. Next, take a short drive to the Snagov Monastery, which is believed to be the resting place of the body of Vlad the Impaler, better known as Dracula. The monastery itself is on an island in the middle of the Snagov Lake, offering stunning views over the surrounding area.   With skip-the-line tickets for these attractions, this tour is the best way to get to know these off-the-beaten-path attractions in Romania.
