Herastrau Park
King Michael I Park
#About the Park

King Michael I Park (Herastrau Park) is one of the most popular parks in Bucharest and has a variety of attractions for the whole family.

The park was founded in 1936 and is about 110,000 square meters, but most of the park is occupied by its large lake, where you can sail in small boats. Alternatively, sit in the inviting cafes opening in the summer and let the kids go wild and play in the old playground. Restaurants and cafes are set up on the shores of the lake.

Other interesting offers for leisure in King Michael I Park include watching the plays in the summer theater and water sports or land sports - from yoga to football. In the park you can also fish, spend time in the hotel and even in a yacht club - all of which you will find here.

In the park there are also flower exhibitions and from time to time, orchestras arrive here, in order to make the visitors' time enjoyable. You can also see the village museum, an open museum that describes life in a typical Romanian village.

Since 1998, part of the garden has been dedicated to a worldwide Japanese exhibition and today it is called the Japanese Garden.

#About Tineretului Park

Tineretului Park (Parcul Tineretului) is spread across an area of ​​80,000 square meters. Construction began in 1965 and lasted until 1974. The main goal of the architect Valentin Donose was to create a large green area suitable for leisure and recreation, for the local population and tourists. In 2013, the complex was upgraded and new pubs, recreation areas and other attractions were opened.

The park, located not far from the city center, is dedicated to cultural activities, sports competitions and recreational activities. Apart from the extensive lawns, long paths, fountains and wooden bridges, there are playgrounds and an amusement park, which includes everything the children want: roller coasters, a Ferris wheel, trampolines, bumper cars and more. There are also various sports fields here, such as tennis courts, football, volleyball and basketball.

The park has an artificial lake, where children can sail in a waterway and sail rubber boats. Alongside the park is also an excellent restaurant, but of course, in such a park you should bring in groceries and just grab a quiet corner for a family meal or a romantic couple meal. You can also use the barbecue stations scattered throughout the large garden.

In the center of the park is the Sala Polivalenta, used for concerts, exhibitions and large sporting events. To enjoy the whole park, the children can also board small trains that will take them around the park.

Parcul Carol I
Carol Park
#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.

Bucharest's oldest public gardens are located in the center of Bucharest. These are the Cișmigiu Gardens (Grădina Cişmigiu), 160,000 square meters in size. They were built in 1845 and were designed by the German architect Karl Mayer. Cișmigiu Gardens are decorated in a well-kept English style. They offer large and rich expanses in lawns, flowers, sculptures and more than 30,000 trees scattered in the surrounding green space.

Children will find a lot of interest here in the various attractions. There is a cruise in the lake, chess on special tables, playgrounds and places where birds can be fed. Also note the sculpture area, where the greatest Romanian poets and writers are sculpted.

In the park there are also various monuments, dedicated to the French and American soldiers who died during the liberation of the city from the occupiers, during World War I and again in World War II.

In the center of the garden you will find a large artificial lake, where you can sail in boats, between swans and pelicans. In the winter, when the big lake freezes, it becomes an ice skating rink.
