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.

  • Beautiful park with a charming lake and gorgeous alleys, with various activities such as the Hard Rock Cafe and the National Village Museum in its proximity. Especially charming in sunny days.

  • Beautiful lake in the middle of the city. Wonderful escape. Herastrau is a big park with many activities. You'll find many options for restaurants and cafes. Also tennis courts and other sports activities. Perfect for children and families as there are many play areas.
  • Great escape from the hustle and bustle. People watching and we noticed some gymnastics/aerobics or Zumba class on one of the greens! Looked great fun! Great for all ages, along the lake you find restaurants. Gets busy at weekends if weather is nice
