Monastère de Comana (Manastirea Comana)

Entrée gratuite

Fondé en 1471 par Vlad l'Empaleur (le vrai 'Comte Dracula' qui a inspiré le personnage fictif du même nom de Bram Stoker), le monastère de Comana (Manastirea Comana) a longtemps été un site intrigant pour les fans. La légende raconte que le corps sans tête de Vlad l'Empaleur a même été retrouvé lors des fouilles du site.

Le monastère était à l'origine situé sur une île au milieu d'un marais et accessible uniquement par un pont en bois. Reconstruit au 16ème siècle par le souverain roumain Radu Serban et restauré par Serban Cantacuzino au début du 18ème siècle, il reste un spectacle saisissant et constitue une diversion populaire pour ceux qui visitent le parc naturel voisin de Comana.

A Guessing Game of Graves

The exact location of Vlad the Impaler’s grave is not known, though there are plenty of compelling theories. The picturesque Snagov Monastery, located on a secluded island on Lake Snagov just north of Bucharest, was long considered the most likely burial site, while more recent evidence points to Comana Monastery as Vlad’s final resting place. Either way, both monasteries are worth a visit for spook seekers and culture vultures alike, and their close proximity to Bucharest makes that all the easier.
