Rent a bike, paddle around the lake, or simply stroll among rose beds, fountains, and monuments at Carol Park. Originally designed in the 1900s as a French garden, the park suffered many changes during the communist regime. See a mausoleum with canons at the front, built of black and red granite and dedicated to socialist revolutionaries. The park also features a technical interactive museum, an open-air Roman arena, a memorial in the shape of a small mosque, and two statues depicting nude youths. Amenities include children's playgrounds, several restaurants, and some ice cream and lemonade stands.

  • It's my second home. Thank you king Carol for such a nice natural place, where I can go with my son every day. There is also.a good restaurant, Dines, where one can have lunch. Nice playgrounds. Beautiful forest. Enjoy it
  • Beautiful! They have a fabulous bike/quad bike place to rent, for kids and adults too! Leafy green gorgeous place to stroll, some fresh juice places to get something refreshing on a summer's day (even though a but pricey). I had a wonderful time there and is not too crowded.
