#About Carol Park

This large and pleasant park, named after the first king of Romania, Carol I, was built in 1906. It is in the southwest area of the city, and is considered one of the largest public parks in the city, for it spreads across 360,000 square meters. Carol Park was designed by the French landscape architect Eduard Redont.

Actually, this park, even with its proximity to the city, is mainly ignored by tourists and locals. It was built for the World Expo that took place here in 1906. If you look to the left of the main entrance, you will see the Technical Museum of Bucharest. It is in a building that was originally built for the Expo.

In the entrance to the park you will see a large and impressive church made of wood. The area surrounding it is also made of wood, giving the area a village-like feeling.

In 1963 it was decided to dedicate Carol Park to the memory of the victims of World War II. This was the reason that the monument for the "Unknown Heroes" was built - a tall monument that was placed in the park. Behind it are two buildings that create an arch. A staircase leads to the monument. Notice the eternal flame next to the monument and the two standing soldiers on each side.

If you are a looking to rest a little from the busy city, a nice walk in the nature of the park, or a nice look at the view of the city, this is the place. There are statues, monuments, and a big lake. There are many statues, walking paths, and a large area that is used for a farmers market on the weekends. Children will enjoy the playgrounds scattered around, and on summer days there are open-aired concerts.

#About the Monument to the Unknown Soldiers

If you have come here, you are inside Carol Park, named after the important Romanian king. Notice that above the park there is a tall monument on a hill. This is the mausoleum of the nation's heroes (Memorialul Eroilor Neamului), formerly the Communist Mausoleum. Behind the monumental monument, 48 meters high, are two buildings that form an arch.

Since the establishment of this monument in 1963, it has commemorated the "heroes of the struggle for freedom and socialism." It was used for this purpose until 1990. But shortly after the Romanian Revolution and after the overthrow of the Communist dictator Ceaușescu, the purpose of the monument and the mausoleum in which Dr. Petre Groza, the first Communist leader of Romania and Gheorghe Gheorghiu-Dej, the dictator of Romania until 1965, it became, as noted, the commemoration of the simple soldiers.

This magnificent building is a monument to the soldiers who fell in wars. It is a monument to the "unknown heroes," the unknown soldiers that each army perpetuates, because they are soldiers who have never been buried because their remains were not found on the battlefield and in general.

The monument leads to a wide, high staircase. Pay attention to the eternal fire burning alongside the monument and the two sentries, who are soldiers standing by it at all hours of the day. The place was indeed kept by soldiers from the Romanian army, both for the honor of the fallen and to avoid vandalism.

Sometimes, there is a chance to see the nice ceremony of the changing of the guard.
