Full description
Make your escape for a half day from the busy streets of Bucharest. Unknown even to some people born and raised here there are some hidden gems just a few miles outside city limits. Leaving Bucharest you travel to the Palace of Mogosoaia. A retreat made for the rulers of the Romanians, in a pure Romanian style called Brancovenesc. It is a quiet and majestic place where you will feel like going back in time.  Next you 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 great views over the surrounding area.

El monasterio se sitúa en un entorno protegido y maravilloso. El guía, Cristi, nos recogió puntual en el hotel. Fue muy amable y nos dio buenas explicaciones sobre el monasterio y el palacio que visitamos. De camino a los lugares que íbamos a visitar nos contó acerca de Bucarest y Rumanía. Un día y una excursión de 10! Muchísimas gracias Cristi por todo!!!

Perfect in every way

Alin Constatine was the best guide we have ever had. Not only did he take us to our chosen destinations but enlightened us on Romanian history, politics, culture, economy. We cannot say enough about his guide skills. GET ALIN
