I'm sure most of us visitors come to this monastery for the famed grave and if you are interested in it, then you won't be disappointed. It's a nice little site and a pretty area, they even have some animals there. Photography is allowed with a fee.

Snagov Monastery is supposedly the resting place or burial site for Vlad Tepes, a.k.a. Dracula. The monastery is located on a small island in which you can access by foot walking over a metal bridge that takes you over a beautiful lake. The monastery is beautiful on the inside and you are able to get up close to Dracula's resting site. Locals visit the monastery so it's not just a tourist attraction. I do think it's worth seeing if you are in Bucharest. It's not that far of a drive from the city.

We took the 446 regional bus from Piata Presei out to Manastirea Vlad Tepes before walking down the road for about 15 minutes and crossing the pedestrian bridge to the monastery. When we reached the island, we were a little confused as the gate was closed and there was no one there. I ended up calling the phone number and was told to enter and go to the church, where someone met us to let us into the church. It was 15 lei per person plus 10 for photographs. The monastery has a very cool interior although it is rather small so we only spent around 10 minutes inside. The big plus for me was the five adorable dogs that crowded around begging for pats as well as the variety of ponys nearby. Overall I'm glad I went although it was a bit of a long trip for such a brief experience.

Interesting if any interest in Vlad Tepes story, otherwise not worth going out of your way for. If you have a car and are driving by the area it’s worth a quick stop.

I learned that this destination is reachable by the regional bus R446 (1.5 lei), from PIATA PRESEI to MANASTIREA VLAD TEPES. The bus may depart early, so be sure to arrive at the bus station at least 10 minutes earlier, and allow some time to look for boarding platform at Piata Presei. It takes about an hour to get there. After getting off the bus, walk right (south) on Strada Mânăstirea Vlad Ţepeş for about 15 minutes (1.1 km, according to Google). There is a pedestrian bridge links the island. It can get quite windy on the bridge. Once you have arrived the island, you may be greeted and asked to pay 15 lei fee to enter the island, as it is a private property (a sign that looks like from the local authority can be seen at the gate). A receipt was given. There is another additional 10 lei fee to take pictures inside the monastery. People there speak limited English, and signs in English is also quite limited. The tomb itself is on the floor and not very interesting to see. However, the drawings on the interior building walls are far more interesting. Unfortunately, there is no explanation about the characters depicted on the walls. On the southeast side of the building, there is a small pier by the lake, that you may get a nice view of Snagov Palace, and other buildings surrounding the lake. There is a sign nearby says the toilet is not functioning. 可搭乘R446從PIATA PRESEI搭乘至MANASTIREA VLAD TEPES站下車(1.5 lei)。公車可能會提早離開,建議至少10分鐘前到站候車。約一小時後抵達,向南方沿Strada Mânăstirea Vlad Ţepeş步行約15分鐘。
