  • The whole facility is very nice. It is the summer palace of Prince Constantin Brancoveanu. In 1688 he had the church built, in which he and his family were immortalized on a fresco. In the palace there is an exhibition to visit. The park is very large and maintained. Behind the castle is a lake and a beautiful flower garden. The property is often used for wedding photos.

  • We went by taxi, this is about 40 minutes and then we went to Snagov, in five hours you can see the two perfectly round trip to the center of Bucharest. The palace and gardens are spectacular, with a very cozy chapel where there was a unique sung ceremony. Worth

  • One of the must see close to Bucuresti. Really nice building, gardens and lake. There are some restaurant with some good food. There is also a wake park in the area with a chill out area, perfect for spring and summer days.
  • The park is super nice, very large and with a variety of trees and plants, very clean. Don't go to the restaurant near the entrance, the prices are high and food less than average.
