The park at Știrbey Domain

Summer Well Festival takes place on the Știrbei Domain, which is located in Buftea, 20 km North-West of Bucharest on a 25 ha surface. The Domain comprises an assembly of natural and historical monuments, part of the national heritage of Romania[6]. It is one of the best preserved aristocratic domains around Bucharest and it belonged to the family of Barbu Ştirbey, prince of Wallachia. The Domain is especially known for the Știrbey Palace, built in 1864[7]. It also contains several other buidlings, a large park and a lake.
