Snagov Lake - Excursion from Bucharest
A visit to Bucharest would not be complete without a day excursion to Snagov Lake. The main attraction here is the Monastery situated on an isolated island in the middle of the lake This is the supposed burial place of the Legendary Dracula, Vlad Tepes.
Pick up from your location in Bucharest and then we go to Snagov, a small village 40 km north of Bucharest, with its beautiful sixteen kilometer long lake. In the centre of the lake is an island occupied by a monastery, built in 1519. The Snagov monastery is situated on the island of the lake with the same name.
Visitors come here to seek the tomb of Dracula sitting in the front of the church altar. Vlad's murder is believed to have occurred in the
forests nearby, where the monks took his body, since both Vlad and his father had both given money to the monastery.
After returning from the monastery visit you can spend some time in Snagov village.
