Snagov Monastery, Snagov
(2.3/5 based on 130+ reviews on the web)
Visit the supposed burial place of Vlad the Impaler at Snagov Monastery. Set out from Bucharest via car or minibus to the church complex set on a small island. You can cross from the shore to the island on the footbridge. Though Vlad the Impaler, better known as Dracula, resting here is only a legend, the monastery is an important religious site nonetheless. Explore the church, built during the 14th century, and admire the intricate frescoes depicting saints and religious figures. You can snap a picture of Dracula's supposed tomb for a small fee.

  • Wonderful little church on an island in the middle of a large lake where many wealthy Romanians (including Ceausescu) have summer homes. A bridge makes it easy to visit this place where Vlad the Impal...  more »
  • A place where reconciliation of nature and spirit. The monastery is nice on the outside, fascinating inside for the frescoes preserved.

  • Vote all 10 Island, creepy and mysterious as much to push you to visit it. Rating 6 monastery. Nice inside, dark, zero explanation, time to visit five min. Grave of vlad tepes very doubtful I would say ... a stone slab, Cap type, no inscriptions or otherwise. IMHO, documenting a while it's a nice gimmick for tourists. To get there without a Navigator, it's complicated, moreover you pass in a large Roma camp doesn't let quiet when parking. Fortunately nothing happened there, but walking among the Gypsies I like! Final, I regard it as an experience to be more to the island than to the guise de nn know who. PS the valet of dubbissima origin will leverage two euros and the cost of the visit of five min of the monastery inside it costs 3!
