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

The Mogosoaia domain is about 10km away from Bucharest - you can get here with a rental car, not sure if there are any busses. The trip is worth it. I'm a local and I still enjoy coming here in the summer - it's a bit cooler than the city, the domain has a lake and a chapel and woods.... More

Mogosoaia Palace is a Romania Baroque Royal Palace just outside Bucharest. The style is distinctive and different from other Palaces of the period in Europe. It is set in a gated park with an ancient church just outside the main door. The Palace is surrounded by lawns, woods and gardens filled with flowers. When I was there in May there... More

A real must see of Bucharest, if anything. It's on my short list, as well as The "Old" Town, the Royal Palace Plaza (Piata Palatului), "La Sosea" district and Cotroceni District. An extremely peaceful place (despite its' tragic history), blending in a typical Romanian way influences of French, English, Italian and Byzantine noble retreats. Car rental (with some sort of...
