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.
