“Great place to spend a day off”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

It is my third time i am coming to this historical monument of Architecture and its beautiful surroundings and lake. Visiting the Palace in spring time is making the experience even more beautiful as the trees in blossom, the perfumed flowers and the green trees and peaceful harmony gives you the serenity your might be looking for after a full stressful week in the capital of Romania. The palace is not hard to find, it is 10 min drive from Bucharest, in Ilfov County as exiting the city from the East side on the way to Targoviste City. At one time, as shown, you will have to turn left and at the end of the street you will find this beautiful landmark of nature and the Mogosoaia Palace. Mogosoaia comes from the Mogos, naming the woman of Mogos, one of the rich family of the 15 th century that owned the land. The Palace was buit in the Romanian Renaissance style called Brancovenesc.
The Palace is surrounded by park, forest and lake and you are even allowed to spend your time on the property free no matter what activity you would like to have.
Taking pictures, having a walk, playing badminton or volleyball, you can forget about the crowded city for a day.
I strongly recommend taking some sunscreen and drinks as there are not shops around the palace so if you need to spend some more time here, you need to be sure you have everything with you.

“Must visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2013

You must go to Mogosoaia Palace, the park is really peaceful and beautiful, you can have a really relax time with your friends on a picnic or just have a stroll through the park. You can spend here half of day if you want to, it is a little far from Bucharest center, I am not sure if you have a bus that drives you there, you better look it up on the internet, but it's really nice. It's really good for events and ceremonies!

“The ultimate relaxation place in Bucharest!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 18, 2012

The Mogosoaia Palace park was recently "improved". Now it looks much better and it is the ideal place to have a quiet (and romantic) walk, to enjoy a picnic, to run or to practice some sports (including some water sports too). Cultural events from time to time during the weekends. But the best is it is not crowded yet! The Palace worth the visit, too.

Close to Bucharest, it is a place where you can find yourself in a quite, idyllic, romantic scenery.

“An architectural marvel, full of history”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 24, 2012

The palace is situated on the Mogosoaia Lake bank, in a unique position. It was built by Constantin Brancoveanu, the Romanian king that was appointed by the Turks and trusted to pay them fortunes every year out of taxes gathered from Romanian people. The turks kept hostages in Istanbul all four sons of him, to make sure they get the money. When Brancoveanu refused to pay tribute, all his four sons were killed. This building is the first representative of THE architectural style named BRANCOVENESC. The surrounding park is also beautiful and you can also visit one of the oldest and most beautiful orhodox churches at the entrance. In the same park there is a creation house (kind of hotel used by writers to compose their works) and a restaurant.
