What you can visit in a private day trip from Bucharest
The first stop in our tour from Bucharest is Mogosoaia Palace, located 15 km outside the city. The old castle is built by Prince Constantin Brancoveanu between 1698 -1702 in what is called the Romanian Renaissance style or Brâncovenesc style which was inspired by Italian Renaissance with baroque and oriental influences.
Aside from the castle, we will visit the basement, the church, some extra buildings (one of them turned into a small art museum) and the magnificent gardens with a lake vue.
We will remain in the same royal ambience by visiting the Stirbey Domain, another popular tourist attraction situated in Bucharest surroundings, which includes the park with the 14 000 sqm lake, the Trinity Chapel and the Stirbey Palace itself.
Besides the guided tour of the property, here you can choose to taste some of the centuries-old recipes carefully prepared by the chef of the Stirbey Domain’s restaurant or to relax in the park.
The trip continues to the Snagov Monastery, an important place not to be missed in any Bucharest day trips.
One of the strongest fortified churches in the Middle Ages, the medieval monument situated on an island in the northern part of Snagov Lake houses the tomb of the dreaded ruler Vlad the Impaler known as Dracula, according to legend.
Our private Bucharest day tour ends with a visit to the Caldarusani Monastery which has a huge artistic value with its painting belonging entirely to Nicolae Grigorescu, one of the greatest Romanian painters. Moreover its museum hosts a collection of medieval art, old books and icons. Exploring this spiritual world will be the perfect end of our day trip from Bucharest.
