Very nice place to visit in a sunny fall day. Close to city center, with a nice fall perfume and some exquisite sights of trees dressed up in yellow to dark brown colors you should not miss this... more »
Very nice park in the heart of Bucharest. It has entertaining areas like boating and romantic areas like lovers alley. You can also find some nice terraces to have a beer or a hot cocoa in winter time as well as a restaurant if you would like to eat with a nice park view.
This place has the potential to be a major tourist attraction. However it is unkempt and the beautiful lake has been drained to make an ice rink which looks horrible as well. The park on its own is laid out so well and should be renovated so that it pulls in more people to enjoy it. Verdict ——- Not Recommendable at this point!!! 😕😕😕
