Discover Dracula's Tomb and Mogosoaia Palace - Private Tour from Bucharest

About this activity
Snagov Monastery: A century after the church was built (1364), Vlad Tepes (Dracula) built the fortress’s walls and dungeon. A slab on the floor of the church marks the grave with the presumed remains of the count. The monastery, located on an island on the far side of the lake, could only be accessed by boat, making it a great hiding place and a terrible prison. The first books in Romanian written in the Latin alphabet were printed here.

Mogosoaia Palace: Built by Prince Constantin Brancoveanu, between 1698 and 1702 as a summer residence, the palace is a perfect example of the Brancovenesc architectural style, with staircase balconies, arcades and columns. On the facade facing towards the lake, the palace displays a superb Venetian – style loggia and a balcony with Brancovenesc carvings overlooking the main courtyard. Today, the palace houses the Brancovenesc Museum.

The death of Prince Vlad Tepes is barely mentioned in the historic documents of the epoch. Nevertheless, there are several hypothesis. According to the most popular one, Vlad Tepes was killed in a battle against the Turks, near Bucharest, in December 1476. Another legend says the Prince was killed in that same battle by the local nobility. Either way, one fact is certain: his head was cut off and taken to Constantinople in order to confirm that the man who killed hundreds of Turkish soldiers had finally died.

Marian and Denise were absolutely wonderful guides. The weather was not exactly agreeable for our day trip but they both battled the cold like champions and gave us the best experience. Marian is very passionate about his country and its history and if given the opportunity I would love to take other tours with him. Denisa while just learning the ropes proved she will be a wonderful and passionate tour guide as well and they were both so very nice. I would take tours with either of them again knowing I would not be disappointed no matter the state of the weather!

Very disappointing. Tour billed as five hours however only 2.5 in duration. Tour guide was more concern about a barbecue gathering and discussing his current romantic relationship rather than focuing on doing his job. Certainly did not appreciate the texting while driving a behavior I view as dangerous and reckless.
