"Cotroceni Palace" Cotroceni Palace Tip by mvtouring

Cotroceni Palace, Bucharest: 5 reviews and 9 photos

The Cotroceni, which incorporates French, Romanian, Art Nouveau, and other styles of architecture, was constructed in the late 19th century as the home of Romania's royal family. After a devastating 1977 earthquake, it was rebuilt and a wing added where the president now has offices. The lavish furnishings, art, and personal effects afford a glimpse into the lives of Romania's former royalty. Guides are required (no extra charge) for the one-hour tour; call ahead to reserve a tour. Taking photographs is prohibited. Since the palace is a bit removed from other sights, you might want to take the Metro to the Politehnica station. COST: $1.85. OPEN: Tues.-Sun. 9:30-4:30.

Address: B-dul. Geniului 1, Bucharest, Romania
