Description

Our journey to Bucharest’s exciting surroundings begins at 8 am. We’ll start with the fascinating Mogoșoaia Palace, located in a beautiful area outside the city. It’s a great example of Brâncoveanu architecture, a common style o the Wallachia region. Today, the palace houses the Museum of Brâncoveanu Art and is an important tourist attraction.

We’ll then make our way to one of the most famous sights in Romania and the place where Dracula is supposed to be buried: the Snagov Monastery. It’s located on an island in the northern part of Snagov Lake. It was built by Mircea the Elder (Dracula’s grandfather), and the first written record of its existence dates back to 1408.

During its history, the monastery was rebuilt by Vlad the Impaler and several other rulers of Wallachia. It was one of the strongest fortified churches and possibly the richest in Wallachia during the Middle Ages.

At the end of the tour we’ll drop you off at your hotel.

Very good!
Great tour and great guide!!
Stellar tour!!
This tour is amazing! I had limited time in Bucharest and decided to get to Bulgaria while I was closeby. SO happy I did! My tour guide, Constantine, was extremely knowledgeable about Romanian and Bulgarian history and the UNESCO sites we visited. I asked a million questions about Bucharest and the sites we visited which he so nicely answered. I could not have asked for a better day or tour guide! I would recommend this tour for small groups and individuals.
