The Cantacuzino Castle was erected by prince Grigore Cantacuzino, nicknamed “Nababul” (“The Mogul”) and inaugurated in 1911 (101 year ago!). It was built in neo-Romanian style in stone and brick after the plans of the Romanian architect Grigore Cerchez and it covers a total surface of 3148 sqm. The interior decorations create a strong romantic ambience. Stained glass windows, marble, brackets and ceilings with painted beams, wood, stone or wrought iron railings and bronze hardware represent a master of artistic craftsmanship. The white stone fireplaces decorated with polychrome mosaics complete the atmosphere of boyar residence.
The Cantacuzino Castle in Busteni is open for visitors every day from 10 to 18. On the main road from Bucharest to Brasov, once you are in Busteni, turn it right on Pescariei Street or Grivitei Street and then follow the signs.
