Cotroceni Palace (Romanian: Palatul Cotroceni) is the official residence of the President of Romania. It is located at Bulevardul Geniului, nr. 1, in Bucharest, Romania. The palace also houses the National Cotroceni Museum.
In 1679, a monastery was built by Șerban Cantacuzino on Cotroceni Hill in the first year of his rule on the place of an old wooden hermitage. The plans of this new monastery kept many of the traditional architectural elements found in the principalities of Romania at the time. The Cotroceni monastery was completed in 1682, and has since been visited frequently by many pilgrims and documented in various Chronicles.

Opulent premises for that specially meticulous culture-addict: this Palace is a pride of Romania. You have to schedule an appointment with two guides to take a private tour. Palace is located next to President of Romania residence. It is a place for official gatherings of Romanian president with important foreign guests.

Professional and knowledgeably staff exceeded our expectations. Very beautiful rooms with unique collections. It was a hot day, but they are providing drinking water at each floor. Call in advance to book your visit.

This is a must see in Bucharest. The museum offers guided tours which are a valuable history lesson. The castle is splendid.
