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 of the city

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 is nice and looks interesting, the architecture is great. There are some other constructions, which are old and are nice to look at, and there is a museum I didn't visit. And there is a lot of space, people come there to take pictures, for picnic and what not [even weddings]. I spent a few hours taking pictures there with a friend of mine, and then tried to get back to Bucharest by foot, to the Northern Railway Station. It took me a few hours, but I like to walk a lot, so it was ok for me. I just didn't wanna get back to a minibus. It's best to get there by car.

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 or silver embroideries, rare books and old manuscripts among other treasures.
Open 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM. Admission $2.
We`ve noticed a pair of "just married" who was taking theyr wedding pictures there. (Romanian women are beautiful :)
