Comana Monastery (@ Comana #1)

A collection of colored details from Comana Monastery (Manastirea Comana), at about 40 kilometers south from Bucharest. It’s a special place to start a weekend and is close to Comana National Park (Parcul National Comana), a huge forest natural reservation.

Snagov Lake (Lacul Snagov)

Less than 40 kilometers away from Bucharest you can find Snagov Lake (Lacul Snagov), a perfect green place for an weekend afternoon. The forests are close as well as restaurants. Enjoy!

Santa Claus Embassy (@ Mogosoaia # 17)

This is a funny one, as apparently now Santa Claus has an embassy in Romania, located in Mogosoia, less than 10 kilometers to Bucharest.

Red Window (@ Mogosoaia # 16)

Another memory from last Xmas, a beautiful decorated window on a red wall, as seen in Mogosoaia.

Winnie the Pooh at Mogosoaia (@ Mogosoaia # 15)

Probably Winnie the Pooh visited Mogosoaia during last Xmas and he enjoyed so much, deciding to wait for the next December.

Another painting from the temporary exposition at Mogosoaia Palace (Palatul Mogosoaia), this time an almost hand made pattern with blue and gold colors.
