Inside was being renovated when we visited so we did not go inside. However we spent quite a bit of time outside. Being summer all the roses where in flower. Was absolutely gorgeous. Definitely worth a visit to the palace and the town is small but very quaint. It is very different to Bucharest itself and worth a trip out... More

I've been to Mogosoaia once. I don't know how to get there anymore [there were some kind of minibuses that took you there, but I don't recommend, since they get really crowded and slightly unpleasant]. Once you get there, you find a different world. There are some restaurants and terraces, but I didn't go there for that. The palace itself... More

A cozy place that gives you the relaxing weekend you wanted so much. It has beautiful gardens, a lake and you can visit the interiors. Anyway the landscapes are breathtaking when you escape from town after a long period of time

Mogoşoaia Palace is situated about 10 kilometres from Bucharest. It was built between 1698-1702 by Constantin Brâncoveanu in what is called the Brâncovenesc style, a combination of Venetian and Ottoman elements. The palace bears the name of the widow of the Romanian boyar Mogoş, who owned the land it was built on. Mogosoaia Museum exhibit oil paintings, stone sculptures, gold... More

The Mogosoaia Palace is situated outside of Bucharest, in the northern part in a commune named Mogosoaia. The palace is situated on the shore of a lake and is surrounded by a very beautiful green place. The entrance fee in the palace is 5 lei (around 1.3 Euros), but you can't expect for more once you're inside (only some old... More

The Palace itself is a very nice piece of history. You can always find art exhibitions, events and intersting things to see. The park is very nice with century-old huge trees. The old church is a must-to-see. Unfortunately during weekends is very crowded.

I took a day tour of Mogosoaia Palace and the Snagov Monastery - I thought it was not worth what I paid for. This place should not be called a palace as it makes you expect something very beautiful and extravagant. Better name is a plain mansion. Tour guide did not recommend me wasting money to visit the inside as... More
