Almost 70% of this park comprises of Herastrau Lake, around which the wooded areas grow. Before we speak of the park's recreational opportunities, you should know that human settlement has been discovered in this park that dates back to the Paleolithic era. Bones of the extinct woolly mammoth have been found here. Also found are coins from the first century BC parts to be from the Dacian settlements of Herastrau.

Sunday afternoons, most of the city's residents retreat to this park for leisure, and yet it never feels crowded. Check out the bronze statue of Charles de Gaulle, widely known as the third ugliest statue in the city. There are also statues of other historical figures everywhere. There's an Adventure Park for kids with trails of various difficulties. there's an aquarium with hundreds of marine animals and plants. There is an open-air Summer Amphitheater. Close to the Hard Rock Cafe there will be a jetty from which boat trips can be taken out into the water. Check out the gorgeous Island of the Roses. A 6 kilometers cycling and jogging track circles the lake; during summertime cycles can be rented from the park entrance.

Hands down the best time to be at this park is during summer nights, when the local clubs all set up stages and turn the entire park into a party area.

  • 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.
