A lovely old palace. Really well restored. Lovely grounds too. We went about 15 years ago and it was nothing like it is now. A bit of a drive out of the city so you may need an organised trip if you don't have your own transport.

The palace was build by the martyr romanian king Constantin Brancoveanu. He build a palace and create an architectonic style. The palace, the gardens and thepark create an armonious system which...

It is situated very close to Bucharest, and it for sure worth a Sunday to be spent here. The park is very nice and big, they have tennis and football facilities, kids playgrounds, picnic areas (some of them get really crowded during summer!). You can rent wake-boards, caiacs or have other water activities, or you can just walk, roller-blade, or... More

Mogosoaia Palace is 15 km from Bucharest to north-west. Nice trip for the half day. There is small restaurant, beautiful garden with lovely flowers. The palace has a museum, but it's not so interrested. The house and the views from windows to the lake/river/garden are marwellous. Have a look to the floor: small mosaic seems to be golden.

This isn't the typical tourist attraction but it's beautiful palace build on the side of a lake. Great landscaping. Little further down there is a long strip to a tourist attraction of little buildings, some of which are real (once houses). I'm sure in the summer this place is very busy. Good vibe for just a stroll.

Great place to relax, very close to Bucharest. Summer is definitly the best time to visit Mogosoaia, but spring is also nice. Try during the week, when the place is not that crowded

Very beautiful castle very close to Bucharest. It is built in a special style called "Brancovenesc" which is a kind of mix between oriental and venetian elements. The land surrounding the castle is pretty large with a lot of old trees and a small lake, the perfect place to take a nice relaxing walk and enjoy the nature. Still in... More
