Visit the supposed burial place of Vlad the Impaler at Snagov Monastery. Set out from Bucharest via car or minibus to the church complex set on a small island. You can cross from the shore to the island on the footbridge. Though Vlad the Impaler, better known as Dracula, resting here is only a legend, the monastery is an important religious site nonetheless. Explore the church, built during the 14th century, and admire the intricate frescoes depicting saints and religious figures. You can snap a picture of Dracula's supposed tomb for a small fee.

A great and a interesting tour on the island. Nice view from the bridge on the path to the Snagov Monastery Plenty of time to see and take photos and videos during the tour. Nice art inside (cost for photos and videos). You can see the The tomb of Vlad the Impaler (Dracula).
Very nice little church. We went on a boat ride and just stopped to check it out. We received a nice welcome and immediate access to go inside
