With its lake and the forest, Snagov is one of the choices for countryside villas near Bucharest and a summer destination for many. 40 kilometers North of Bucharest, it is easily accessible via the highway towards Ploiești. The forest is the largest remaining part of the Codrii Vlăsiei, the large forest that once surrounded the capital. Visit the Snagov monastery where Vlad Țepes’ tomb is to be found.
