Getting here and back by local minibus was an adventure in itself! From the bus stop, it's about half a mile past varied village houses and then across the bridge to the island. There was no sign of any boat however, so it all had...More
Part of the trek to find Dracula. Sort of kidding, but this is most likely the burial place of Vlad the Impaler after whom Dracula was modeled. You walk over a bridge onto the island. Nice lake views. Beautiful gardens, lots of birds ncluding per...More
I was taken to Snagov Monastery to see the body of Vlad Tepes, the Monastery is situated over a short walk along the bridge.
The Monastery is very small but historic inside, the gardens are lovely and would be wonderful in the summer.
A very nice small church, but the monastry is gone. It costs too much: 15 euro for a glimse of the small stone that hides Draculas’ corpse.
Beware: we waited for hours for a bus back to Boekarest. It did not come at all.
I agree with others that there could be more signage. We were lucky as we had a knowledgeable guide to give us lots of information about its history. In many ways it's claim to fame is as the reputed burial place of Vlad Tepes (Vlad...More

I'm not sure I understand the question but if you mean is it easy to get to Snagov by bus then the answer is yes. You don't need a tour - it's an easy minibus ride from the Bucharest Bus Station. And Romanians are so friendly that you'll have no trouble at all finding the right bus and then getting off at the right stop. Once you're off the bus it's about a 15 minute walk down the road to the Island. The only thing to consider is the low frequency of direct buses back. Make sure you know the return time table (the driver will tell you) but there's always other buses that just go back by a longer route. All very easy. I did write a review about Snagov in October last year. There might be more information there. Have fun. Romania is a great place to trave around.
There is now a bridge on the north side (Feb 2015). We drove to the bridge, parked and walked across. Appears to be one person living there who collects a small fee, don't recall how much. No tours that I saw. Not sure of... More
There is now a bridge on the north side (Feb 2015). We drove to the bridge, parked and walked across. Appears to be one person living there who collects a small fee, don't recall how much. No tours that I saw. Not sure of when it is open or closed. Long story, we didn't program our GPS properly so it took us to the south side. We were able to ask people and navigate around the lake to the location of the bridge. Since we don't speak Romanian and they didn't speak English well, it was challenging, but fun.
