Snagov Monastery:

Snagov Monastery, a rustic cloister from 1364, on a small isolated island in the middle of Snagov Lake, is the reputed burial place of Vlad Tepes, also known as Dracula, who, it is claimed, lies beneath the floor of the church. It's 40 km (29 mi) north of Bucharest.
Don't let yourself be taken in by the imposing forest and the nice lake surrounding the island or by the generous architecture of the monastery. The secrets are there and when the strong winds rummage the deep waters the frightful sound of ringing bells of the old sunk church (built here by Vlad the Impaler's grandfather, Mircea cel Batran) reveal them to a cautioned ear. The island and the monastery witnessed throughout the centuries lots of crimes and dramas.
Vlad the Impaler built a jail with special torture chambers where the prisoners were killed by fire or iron and then thrown straight into the lake by a sort of canon.
In 1476, Prince Vlad the Impaler-Dracula was mysteriously killed in a battle and the legend says that he was buried in Snagov Monastery. The archaeological digging discovered the tomb but removing the marble that was supposed to cover the Vlad's grave ,they found an empty six foot pit. Is it Vlad the Impaler-Dracula?


Mogosoaia Palace:

The first record about Mogosoaia dates as early as the 24th of April 1598.
From 1681 on, Constantin Brāncoveanu succesively buys pieces of land and manor houses in the village. In 1702, Constantin Brācoveanu had a large and beautiful building errected on the premises of a former manor house situated on the border of the lake; it was meant to be inhabitated by his son Stefan and it copied the style of another Wallachian palace built by him at Potlogi. Brācoveanu's Palace is an architectural monument that combines Wallachian and Byzantine decorative features with traits characteristics of the Italian Renaissance. On the basement there is a cave whose ceiling consists of four semi-sferical domes disposed around a central pillar. On the ground floor there are several modest looking rooms and other living spaces for the servants. The suits of the princely family as well as reception halls for important guests were located on the first floor.
Outside stairs lead from the honour courtyard to a large and dainty balcony placed in the middle of tthe main facade.
Both the balcony and the first floor rooms had been initially adorned with oriental stucco and mural paintings representing either members of the princely family or historical themes.
Brācoveanu Art and Architecture Museum will be housed in the palace as soon as the extensive restaurations have been completed.
On the facade overlooking the lake there is a wonderfull "loggia" of Venetian inspiration, with three cusped archades. Its rich adornment joins together stylistic elements characteristic both of the Renaissance and the Baroque.

Its elegant and rafined features make this edifice unique in the Romanian residential architecture.

Caldarusani Monastery:
The monastery, built in 1638 under the guidance of Walachia's prince Matei Basarab (1632-1654), gained recognition during the 18th century as home to one of Romania's most distinguished icon painting schools. The 17 year old Nicolae Grigorescu spent some months at the monastery, painting several icons for the church.
