Snagov Monastery, Snagov

(2.3/5 based on 140+ 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.

  • Generally I do not recommend, at the outset, they want 10 lei for parking even though there was no information. After going to the island appeared the Lord that on the spot he wanted to delete us after 15 leu for the input on the same island and then 9 leu for the photos.

The best go cart with a condition and a horse.
