Bucharest-Snagov-The Old Princely Court - Dracula Restaurant
Prepare to immerge into the legend. You will be collected by our guide from your accommodation in Bucharest. Drive to Snagov to visit Snagov Monastery where, according to the legend, Vlad the Impaler aka Dracula, was buried after his assassination. The monastic establishment is located on a small island of Snagov Lake so you’ll also enjoy a boat trip across the lake. The architectural style of the monastery follows the architectural pattern that is characteristic to the monasteries on the Holy Mount Athos in Greece. Return to Bucarest.
Visit The Old Princely Court. The building was about 160 sq. m. wide and also had a tower. During Vlad the Impaler's reign a new fortress was built, in rectangular shape and of over 600 sq. m. with many cellars. By the end of the 15th century the fortress was almost 1000 sq. m. wide, with the followers of Vlad the Impaler continuing his work (Basarab the Young, Mircea the Shepherd). In 1972, on the site of the former Princely Court an open air museum was opened for public visitation, displaying fragments from different stages of the fortress development. We'll only enjoy an exterior look of the museum.
Enjoy a special Dracula dinner in a Dracula themed restaurant, with an ambience faithfull to the fictional hero. Each of the three dining salons feature a distinct decor. In the Transylvanian Room one can find hand-carved chairs, service plates from the ceramics center of Corund, a ceiling of wooden shingles, and walls adorned with pottery, festival masks, reminding the diners of the Count's home turf.
