What You Can Expect

Choose your preferred start time in advance, and meet your guide during pickup at your Bucharest hotel in a private vehicle. Leave the bustle of the city behind, and enjoy the scenery on the roughly 1-hour drive north to lovely Lake Snagov.

Here, visit the famous Snagov Monastery, located on a small island in the middle of the lake. Learn the history behind the 14th-century monastery and see the floor slab marking the alleged final resting place of Vlad Tepes — the real-life prince whose bloody campaigns against the Turks inspired the character of Count Dracula. Just like his life, the death of ‘Vlad the Impaler’ remains shrouded in mystery.

For something a bit less sinister, head to nearby Mogosoaia Palace, built as a summer residence for Prince Constantin Brancoveanu between 1698 and 1702. Admire the Venetian-style loggia overlooking the lake and the palace exterior, a striking example of the Brancovenesc style of architecture. Delve further into regional history inside the palace at the Brancovenesc Museum.

Throughout the day, enjoy the personalized attention of your private guide and ask all the questions you like. Relax on the return ride to Bucharest, where the 4-hour tour concludes with drop-off back at your hotel.
