If you want a moment of silence near Bucharest, one place you can choose can be Mogosoaia’s Palace.
Beginning with 2001 the palace houses a museum of comparative art, as well as a cultural center promoting contemporary art, actions and events. The palace from Mogosoaia is a brilliant synthesis of Venetian and Oriental style => Brancovan style.
What you can do there: visit the museum, walking through the gardens, enjoying a relaxing lunch/dinner and/or a glass of something with your friends outside noisy Bucharest.
