#Nature / Park, #Must See
Walk, cycle, jog, take a boat ride on the lake, or just sit in one of the quiet, shady corners of Herăstrău Park. The park was laid out in the 1930s on the lakeshore, which had been the favorite promenade for the city's rich since the late 19th century. Today you'll find numerous attractions, including an open-air village museum, a royal palace, an old-fashioned fairground, an aquarium, a summer theater, and many small pavilions hosting art exhibits. Walk its alleyways lined with roses, old trees, water fountains, and benches. As you walk, notice the park's many sculptures representing statesmen, artists, poets, and fictional characters, such as Prince Charming. Explore summer terraces on the lakeshore, visit the tennis courts, rent a bike, or stop for a bite to eat. The park also features a memorial to Michael Jackson. Herăstrău Park is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Bucharest Edition.

  • The main park of the Romanian Capital, it's also the best place for a walk in the nature. Also, you can rent a bike, stop at a terrace-pub, take a boat-ride on the lake (if it's not winter), or just relax and sit on a bench. The park allows you a comfortable escape from the asphalt jungle!
  • This park has a lot of history behind it. It's romantic and nostalgic alleys bring you back in time and makes you forget for a while in which timeline you live in. It's something else. It is a place I always go back with a open mind ans heart to try out new experiences and remember the old.
  • Biggest park in the city, quite crowded on the weekends, but always a nice place to take a stroll. Fall colors are beautiful. Bicycle rides by night are very pleasant. Lots of fancy bars.
  • The biggest park in Bucharest. A great walk outdoors during the weekend. It offers lots of restaurants and food stalls, plenty of playgrounds, statues. You can also row kayaks or go on boats on the lake. It can take up to 60 minutes to walk around full cicle.
  • Amazing parc to relax and gaze at the beauty of Nature. I spent the whole day there and I loved it so much. The park is very big with amazing lake and waterfronts, ducks swimming around, botanic gardens, plenty of vendors of snacks in almost every corner. I recommend totally
