Rent a bike, paddle around the lake, or simply stroll among rose beds, fountains, and monuments at Carol Park (Liberty Park).

See a mausoleum with canons at the front, built of black and red granite and dedicated to socialist revolutionaries. The park also features a technical interactive museum, an open-air Roman arena, a memorial in the shape of a small mosque, and two statues depicting nude youths.

Where to stay in Bucharest

To take advantage of Bucharest's lively downtown, look for accommodations in the areas of Universitatii square, Unirii, Romana, or Victoriei to be closest to bars, clubs, and restaurants, as well as many of the major sights. Choose from a variety of hostels and budget hotels, or book a night at one of the mid-range or luxury hotels. If you decide to venture farther out of the city, look for lodging close to public transportation to avoid the city's notoriously bad traffic.
