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 Edition.

  • 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
