After about one hour of driving to the north of Bucharest we will reach Mogosoaia Palace, a building known for its Brancovenesc architecture. This is a Romanian Renaissance architectural style mixed with Venetian and Ottoman elements. The Palace was built by the ruler Constantin Brancoveanu in 1702. After the execution of Constantin Brancoveanu in Constantinople in 1714, the palace remained in the family but went through a decline during the Ottoman rule. It was renovated from 1912 by Martha Bibescu, becoming a meeting place for the members in the high level society. During the Second World War, the palace was also a meeting place for the Allied diplomats. In the end of the Second World War, after 1945, the palace was nationalized by the Communist Party. At present, the palace hosts the Museum of Brancoveanu Art and is an important tourist attraction.
