  • Situated almost 20 km from Bucharest, the Palace is an excellent point to know the history of what is one of the most important figures of Romanian history, Constantin Bracoveanu. The Golden mosaic lined floor and the lounge with the Panel on the wall with the same design and his family. The interior remains well preserved. In the surroundings of the Palace, a garden and a pond to give an extra charm to the local landscape.

  • A good place to visit in every season. The park around palace is nice for romantic walks. In palace is a museum with a 5 lei ticket (aprox. 1.10€) with nice exhibits. 
  • We were the morning before going to the airport and we loved it. In Bucharest there was nothing to do and we went here. Do not enter the Palace but we were calmly strolling through the Park and we sat quietly next to the Lake. The entrance to the Park is free.

  • Nice place to visit. You can get here by maxi taxi from Bucharest metro station "1st mai". Price 2lei.do not ever try to go here by train!
  • A true Romanian Palace, with impressive gardens and a fine wood nearby. However, the restaurant could use a due refresh of their menu.
  • A romanian castle with beautiful gardens situated north of Bucharest by a small lake. Really crowded sometimes, but worth visiting just for a walk. There is a restaurant, a wedding venue, and an orthodox church here.
  • Visited here on 10.04.2016, I deeply admired its location, architecture and history. Any visitor to Bucharest must visit here🏰👍.
  • A very nice and peacefull place
