Snagov forest is probably the closest area for outdoor activities outside Bucharest. The thick forest routes, the lake shore and the cultural sights are opportunities to visit the area for one day. Snagov area is a natural reservation, with two natural protected areas – for fauna and flora, Snagov lake and Snagov forest. Snagov forest is a remnant of the great Vlasia forest. Many trails criss-cross this forest and you can easily enjoy a bike ride. One can spot various birds, deer, rabbits, wild hogs.
Along this trip you will visit Snagov Monastery – the burial place of Vlad III Dracula, dubbed The Impaler; Caldarusani Monastery, but also the former hunting areas where Ceausescu – the Romanian dictator used to hunt.
If desired, you can book some kayaks for those looking for some more adventure in the Snagov lake.
