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 large park with Lake... on the opposite shore you can see what I imagine will be summer, with piers houses and all... the Palace is very well and the Hermitage back very curious.

  • We had a stop at this place on our way back and it worth visiting. Everything is made from bricks and the natural color in contrast with the green gardens is just amazing.  more »
  • The Palace of Mogoșoaia built by Constantin Brancoveanu is structured in plans where the first were the splendid apartments, with original mosaic floors, gold items and clothes of that period, with balcony on the front and a large outdoor courtyard. On the ground floor the service rooms, and in the basement there is a cellar (which now contains the frescoes recovered before renovation). The façade towards the Lake presents a gorgeous Ottoman-style Venetian loggia. Today the Palace houses the Museum of art "Brâncovanian of Mogoșoaia" and is a major tourist attraction and to visit costs 1 €. You can't take pictures inside, so we recommend to inspect it because it's worth it.

  • 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
