Know More about this tourWe start this tour with an interesting Bucharest tour including visits to 2 important museums .
The Palace of the Parliament is the seat of the Parliament of Romania. Located on Spirii Hill in central Bucharest, the Palace is the second largest administrative building in the world after the Pentagon. It is also the most expensive administrative building and heaviest building. It measures 270 m by 240 m, 86 m high, and 92 m under the ground. It has 1,100 rooms and is 12 stories tall, with additional 8 underground levels including an enormous nuclear bunker. A colossal parliament building known for its ornate interior, it houses the Senate and the Chamber of Deputies, three museums and an international conference center.
We continue with Cotroceni Museum. Between 1679 and 1681 the prince erban Cantacuzino (1678 - 1688) built, in the West of Bucharest, the Cotroceni ensemble, his most important architectural project.
The Cotroceni ensemble stands alone in the Bucharest and national architectural scenery through its various components, each one with different functions and destinations. Its uniqueness is reflected in the lay architecture that dominated the Cotroceni ensemble (the palace, the medieval cellars, still existing today, the pavilion, the annexes, the manage, the gardeners house, the greenhouses,) military (the Royal Guard), ecclesiastical (the monastery: the cells, the kitchen, the refectory, the vault, the bell tower, the church - the central edifice, the priestly houses, the chapel of the asylum for orphan girls - painted by Gh. Tatarescu - a famous Romanian artist), functional (the railway station), exotic (the Amerindian house in the garden), funerary monuments (those of princess Maria and of the Davila family), a large garden (part of it would later become the Botanical Garden), the military and exercise field, the Cotroceni city barrier.
Our tour continues with Mogosoaia Palace located just a short ride from Bucharest. It was built between 1698-1702 by Constantin Brncoveanu in what is called the Romanian Renaissance style or Brncovenesc style. The palace bears the name of the widow of the Romanian boyar Mogo, who owned the land it was built on. The princely residence was first mentioned at the end of the 16th century, its construction being finished at the beginning of the 18th century.
After 1714, when Constantin Brancoveanu was executed with his entire family in Constantinopole, all the family's wealth was confiscated by the Ottomans and the palace was converted into an inn. Rebought by Prince Stefan Cantacuzino, he returned it to Brncoveanu's grandson Constantin, and remained with the family until the early nineteenth century.
In the evening we return to Bucharest where our tour ends.
