it is not like a palace at all from the outside, it looks like a government office or president residence(the reality it is). we need to pass a serious security check abit first. but then it looked really interesting when we got into the garden and palace. good place to try

Some very nice stuff in Cotroceni Palace. I see why the royal family liked living there. Staff were knowledgeable and spoke good English.

In my childhood, '50 y, I was here 3-5 times in every week , here was our Children Palace. I learned here to paint, to play tenis as Ion Tiriac and Ilie Nastase .In winter time the colorful masked carnival have bring children of all schools from Bucharest, in summer time we read books from the rich library of Palace in its beautiful gardens. The years run fast, the time is changed, now only sometimes I can listen concerts or visited exhibitions here. The Cotroceni Palace was for me a chance to grow up in a historical , magnificent palace like a little princes in a wonderful land, I will love this palace all my life! EvaChiser

There might be around 10 malls in Bucharest but this one beats them all when it comes to the variety, the crowd, the fun activities
