Website Cotroceni Palace
The Cotroceni Palace enjoys, when compared with all the other palaces in Bucharest, the most consistent historical background. The nowadays palace was erected in 1888, by order of Prince Carol I, who commissioned Paul Gottereau to build a royal residence, which he successfully did, lending the structure a graceful Classical Venetian style. However, a significant part of the history of the Cotroceni Palace goes back earlier than the construction of the palace proper.
