The National Museum of Cotroceni, commonly known as The Cotroceni Palace, is one of the major landmarks of Bucharest. With over 3 centuries of existence, Cotroceni Palace is the residence with the longest use in Romanian history.
On the Cotroceni tour you discover the palace's tumultuous past that carries war, earthquakes and multiple regime changes. The palace tell stories on the Romanian Royal family, their downfall and survival in present day Romania, on communism and the changes that it brought with it and the current role of Cotroceni as the host of the presidential office.
On our way to the palace we tour the coquette neighborhood of Cotroceni. A neighborhood mostly developed in the interwar period, Cotroceni boasts of Art Deco and Neo- Romanian town houses. A survival of the communist era, Cotroceni forms an oasis of old charm in the urban chaos of Bucharest.
