Mogosoaia Palace, Mogosoaia

Stroll around the lake and through the peaceful gardens of Mogosoaia Palace, a 17th-century palace built in Brâncovenesc style--a combination of Venetian and Ottoman architectural elements. This historical complex, built on land owned by the widow of the Romanian boyar Mogoș, features a watchtower, guesthouse, ice house, princely kitchen, and greenhouse. The palace, with its narrow passes, spiral stairways, and bright and airy rooms, contains a museum of Brâncoveanu-style art. See the reconstructions of period furniture and a number of antique carpets. The garden offers a few picnic spots.

  • A piece of history, beautiful architecture... Perfect place for our spear time... Go to visit, worth it!
  • The park is a nice place, well kept, a worth destination near Bucharest. Unfortunately, Sunday 30 July (and probably this was not an exception) I lived a very disagreeable experience : when trying to relax there, I was compelled to leave because of the extremely loud and bad taste music that bursted into the air, in the area not far from the palace, at 1h45 p.m. (!!!). I simply do not understand why the local authorities allow (or even support) such primitive habits in places where people are supposed to enjoy calm and nature. Another negative remark: the lake is completely neglected and dirty– covered with plants and garbage, it also badly smells.
  • Nice place to visit for the cultural heritage and the lovely park. Read the history of the place on Wikipedia before visiting. There are little explanations in English.
  • SUPERB PLACE, the palace and the domain. Worth the time! GO GO GO
  • Great location to visit during weekends. You can take photos, or just take a walk, it`s a relaxing place.
