Snagov Monastery, Snagov

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.
