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.

  • Truly beautiful huge park placed on the northern side of the city, around Lake Herastrau. This is a largest park in Bucharest, a very special place in the heart of this city. There are several very nice restaurants, playgrounds, benches to sit and relax in and its nice to just take a stroll around and enjoy it. You can enjoy taking boat ride or other various activities such as the Hard Rock Cafe and the National Village Museum in its proximity. Especially charming in sunny days. Love it!
  • 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.
