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.

  • Тhe palace was a good with friendly staff. It was bare and no original painting was saved. The church beside the palace was a good. All the original wall paintings and window glass painting was preserved. Beautiful park and lake.
  • Charming place,beautifully kept and just nice to enjoy another of Romanias little jewels. Also the restaurant is well worth stopping by. Good menu and competitive prices. Will go there again.
  • One of the best places to get out from Bucharest, for a peaceful walk in the gardens. If you want to come here I recommend to visit this place during the week because it's much quieter. During the weekend plenty of families come here with children and bicycles, baby trolleys, dogs... You can stay on the grass and have a little picnic and enjoying the fresh air.
  • I enjoyed my visit. The gardens are beautifully created and the building has an art gallery which is impressive. The interior is lovely, the floors of each room were amazing
  • For a reviving getaway outside the hustle and bustle of Bucharest, head for a day trip 30 minutes outside the capital to Mogosoaia Palace. Built by legendary ruler Constantin Brancoveanu in famed brancovenesc style, emblematic to many of Romania's houses, it's a great spot for an afternoon spent on premise or an activity-filled day with the kids. Inside the palatial complex, you can visit the various buildings, take a stroll through the park or down by the lake, sit down on the patio for a bite to eat or enjoy various cultural events held inside the palace.
