For a quick getaway from the city, to recover, revive and relax, we recommend Casa Radu, in Snagov. It is new, well taken care of, small and intimate; they have a beautiful swimming pool and many various flowers, trees and bushes: the garden is luxurious, like the most part of the environment there in Snagov.
You have probably heard of Snagov; it is a touristic attraction because of the Snagov Monastery, the small monastery on the island on the lake, where the remains of Vlad Tepes the Impaler , a.k.a. Dracula, lie.
Yes, it is possible to spend one day (or several) in Bucharest with no money. But don’t get excited, although there are places where you can eat for extremely cheap, I do not believe you will find food for free in this capital. But other than that, here are some things that people don’t usually know about what you can do and what you can see for free here.
We are talking proper jungle, I mean animals. Unlike other capitals, the ones of Western Europe, in Bucharest there are still wild animals on the streets and in the parks. Last year there was an owl behind the building of the hostel. We never saw it but we imagined it has built a nest in the attic of the building behind us. One would hear it everyday in the wee hours of the morning.
