The Cantacuzino Castle is situated on Zamora Street in Bușteni, Romania. The building, whose construction was completed in 1911, was conducted by the architect Gregory Cerchez at the request of Prince George Grigore Cantacuzino. It is built in Neo-Romanian style; the total surface of the estate is over 3,000 square meters. The estate is surrounded by a park with paths that lead to a waterfall grotto and artisanal fountains. In the central pavilion is a collection of unique Romanian heraldry representing the families allied with the Cantacuzino family, as well as portraits of the family members.Before you head to Busteni, plan trip itinerary details with our user-friendly Busteni trip planner, to make sure you see all that Busteni has to offer, including Cantacuzino Castle.
The castle belonged to the Cantacuzino family until the forced nationalization of 1948, when it became a preventorium for the Ministry of Internal Affairs. During the communist period, the original furniture was removed and a part of the interior walls were painted over.
After 1989, the castle was returned to Cantacuzino descendants, who sold it to private investors in 2004.
The castle underwent restoration work and today it is open to the public.

Cantacuzino Castle Reviews
It might not have much to show on the inside, but the story is compelling and the view is amazing. Bonus : the temporary art exhibitions are a must-see. more »

Stay outside, is nicer then inside! There is not much to see inside the Castel, you can only enjoy the view from the balcony , anything else inside is nothing to see . We do like more out. Beautiful garden beautiful view to the city ! Love Romania ✌🏽♥️
Quality venue. Lovely grounds, in mountain air with sunshine, nothing much better. Onion soup delicious and staff very friendly. Definitely worth a visit, just for the view of the mountains opposite.
