Full description
After having been collected from your accommodation, your tour will begin with you discovering the Mogosoaia Palace. The palace was built in 1702 by Constantin Brancoveanu, who was the last Vallachian prince before the Phanariot rule was imposed by the Otoman Empire. The Brancovan style is considered the first Romanian style, and is also referred to as Renaissance Romanian. Whilst at this location, your guide will detail to you the many intricacies and traits of this style.

You will then head to the Snagov Monastery, a 14th-century monastery located on an island in the middle of Snagov Lake which was later transformed by Vlad Dracula into a prison. According to the legends Vlad would be buried in the monastery of Snagov, where monks would bring his body in secret. There you will enjoy the silence away from the hustle of the city to discover the real story about Vlad the Impaler and the legends of Count Dracula.

Throughout your transfer back to your hotel you will admire the most important sights of the city. These include Free Press Square, Victory Street, the Romanian Athenaeum, Revolution Square, the Memorial of the Renaissance, and the former Royal Palace.
