Palatul Mogosoaia in miez de iarna / The Mogosoaia Palace in mid winter

Ignorand cele 7 grade de afara si ploaia constanta de zilele trecute, suntem inca in luna ianuarie si in plin sezon friguros. Astfel cu o saptamana in urma am zis sa fac o mica plimbare pana la Palatul Mogosoaia, langa Bucuresti, pentru a vedea si admira domeniul brancovenesc intr-un peisaj nou mie…

O cladire istorica, construita in anul 1702 de catre Constantin Brancoveanu, in stilul cunoscut astazi ca stilul brancovenesc. De alungul timpului cladirea a fost devastata de mai multe ori, urmele razboaielor si luptelor fiind sterse de lucrari de renovare… De fapt, chiar in urma cu 2 ani am gasit palatul in mijlocul unor lucrari de restaurare 🙂

Deasemenea palatul a detinut diverse functii, de la resedinta personala, han (sub proprietate otomana), loc de intalnire pentru diplomati in timpul celui de-al 2-lea razboi mondial si pana la Muzeul de Arta Brancoveneasca din prezent. In 1949, palatul este nationalizat si devastat, iar lucrarile de arta sunt furate.

Cam atat despre istoricul palatului. Dar adevarata splendoare este in vizita propriu zisa, in plimbarea prin domeniul palatului, in admirarea opereleor de arta ale muzeului si a stilului arhitectural specific, in gradinile superbe care au alt aspect si alta culoare in fiecare anotimp. Aveti optiunea unui moment de relaxare pe marginea lacului, alaturi de strajerii de piatra (niste lei), sau chiar de un picnic pe pajistea destul de mare de langa palat… Optiuni multe, timp sa fie 🙂

Pentru o dupa-amiaza de weekend mai diferita, va invit la o vizita aici, cu masina sau fara, se ajunge destul de usor oricum 😛

ENGLISH:

Ignoring the 7 degrees outside and the constant rain of the past few days, we are still in the month of january and in full winter. Thus i told myself one week ago that i should take a little trip to the Mogosoaia Palace, near Bucharest, in order to admire the site in the white scenery of winter…

A historic building, build in the year 1702 by Constantin Brancoveanu, in the style know today as „brancovenesc”. In time the building was destroyed more than once, the mark of war and combat having been erased by works of restoration… In fact, 2 years ago i actually found the palace in full renovation 🙂

Also, the palace has held different functions in time, from personal residence, inn (under turkish dominance), diplomatic meeting site during the 2nd world war and all the way to a museum of art in the present day. In 1949 the palace is nationalized and devastated, and the woks of art are mostly stolen…

And that’s about it for the history lesson. But the true splendor of this place is the visit itself, the walk in the palace domain, in admiring the works of art in the museum and the specific architectural style, the amazing gardens that change colors every season… You also have the option to take a moment to relax at the edge of the lake, along with 2 stone guardians ( 2 lions), or even for a picnic on the meadow near the palace… So many options, hopefully there is time as well 🙂

For a more special weekend afternoon, i invite you all to visit this place. Go with or without a car, it can be easily reached either way 😛
