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.
