Built by Prince Constantin Brancoveanu,between 1698 and 1702 as a summer residence,the palace is the perfect proof of the Brancovenesc architectural style,with staircase balconies,arcades and columns.On the façade towards the lake,the palace displays a superb Venetian-style loggia and a balcony with Brancovenesc carvings overlooking the main courtyard.Today,the palace houses is named Brancoveanu Musesum
