Truly beautiful huge park placed on the northern side of the city, around Lake Herastrau. This is a largest park in Bucharest, a very special place in the heart of this city. There are several very nice restaurants, playgrounds, benches to sit and relax in and its nice to just take a stroll around and enjoy it. You can enjoy taking boat ride or other various activities such as the Hard Rock Cafe and the National Village Museum in its proximity. Especially charming in sunny days. Love it!
Worth taking a stroll on a sunny and warm day. A boat ride is even better! It’s a shame that it’s not too well cared for. Used to be much nicer like most parks in Bucharest.
Very nice park. I would recommend for a off day or if you are tourist to spend some Hours relaxing. Hard Rock Cafe around to have food and drink a good beers. Toilets free absolve and bikes to rent. It’s clean and good spot to be with friends
Huge park with many places in which you can enjoy a coffee or a beer or eat something. Well maintained and clean still needs some improvements on the marginal alleys which are deteriorated. On the lake side you have the possibility to rent small boats or to have a ride on existing passenger small vessels which are crossing the lake.
This park is the type where you can just sit and relax, watch the sceneries, enjoy walking, eat delicious food with various restaurants. A great place to go together with family and friends. Recommended!
