Muntenia : Snagov
Jump to: navigation, search

Default Banner.jpg

Snagov is a village in Muntenia.


Located next to a large lake not far from Bucharest, Snagov was once a popular weekend destination. Its main attraction is now the Snagov monastery (one of the alleged burial sites of Vlad the Impaler) located on an island on the northern part of the lake.

Get in

Frequent minibuses (departing from the public transport terminal at Presei Liberei square) link Bucharest with Snagov and the other localities around the lake. To get to the monastery preferably use the minibuses heading to Siliştea Snagovului (a one hour trip).

Get around


  • Mânăstirea Snagov (Snagov monastery), (on the only island on Snagov lake). A very old religious site (founded before 1408), it's mainly known as a possible burial place of Vlad the Impaler/Dracula. The monastery once housed the coin minting facility of the medieval principality Wallachia and in the late 17th-early 18th centuries one of the most important printing houses in South-Eastern Europe was located on the island. It can only be accessed by boat (rented from locals, as there aren't any ferrys), either from Siliştea Snagovului (150 meters away from the island) or from Snagov itself (about 900 meters to the island)






Accommodations are relatively scarce, there are just a few guesthouses.
