Comana Natural Park /Comana Monastery
If you want to spend a day away from Bucharest, but not too far away, Comana Monastery and the nature that surrounds it (especially the Neajlov delta) are an excellent idea. Unfortunately, during the weekend others may have the same urge as you, so it can get busy.
Comana Monastery is founded by Vlad Tepes (Vlad the Impaler, the one who inspired the famous count Dracula character) in the 15th century. Legend has it that this is the place where Vlad the Impaler died and if you’ve been wondering where is Vlad the Impaler buried, the Comana Monastery is one possible place. However, there is another monastery not far from Bucharest where it is said that Vlad the Impaler is buried: Snagov Monastery.
From Comana monastery, after a short ride, you will reach the Comana natural park, a protected area around the Neajlov delta.
Comana Monastery and the Neajlov Delta form a peaceful oasis near Bucharest. During the week this place is deserted and this way you can really enjoy it and discover how wonderful it is like that!
