Duration: 4 hours
Location: Bucharest, Romania

From USD

Thea death of Prince Vlad Tepes is barely mentioned in the historic documents of the epoch.Neverthless,there are several hypotheses.Acording to the most popular one,Vlad Tepes was killed in a battle against the Turks,near Bucharest,in December 1476.

The 4 hours trip includes visits to Snagov Monastery with Dracula's Tomb(located on a island on Snagov Lake)and Mogosoaia Palace(1916).

A century after the church was built(1364),Vlad Tepes(Dracula) built the fortress's walls and dungeon.A slab on the floor of the church marks the grave with the presumed remains of the Count.The monastery,located  on a island on the far side of the lake,could only be accesed by boat,making it a great place and a terrible prison.The first book in Romanian written in Latin alphabet were printed here.

        Mogosoaia Palace
Built by Prince Constantin Brancoveanu,between 1698 and 1702 as a summer residence,the palace is the perfect proof of the Brancovenesc architectural style,with staircase balconies,arcades and columns.On the façade towards the lake,the palace displays a superb Venetian-style loggia and a balcony with Brancovenesc carvings overlooking the main courtyard.Today,the palace houses is named Brancoveanu Musesum
