I really loved this park, it's situated in the nord part of the city, not very close to the center but well connected by public transports. Inside the park there's a lake and many places that sell food and beverages. It's perfect to have a walk in total relax outside the hectic capital!

The best of all was to find the same amazing views as I remembered from my childhood. Since then, the park is some forty years older, however, as beautiful as ever. A walk around the lake can take about two hours, especially if one adds a few stops for coffee, lunch, or a drink at one of the pleasant restaurants along the way.
Herastrau remains a wonderful open space to enjoy the day with kids, with someone dear, or simply by yourself, away from the bustling city.

Herăstrău Park is absolutely massive, mostly well kept and well worth a visit if you're in the city.

The biggest park in Bucharest and one of the most beautiful.For some time now, the authorities have changed his name to King Mihai Park. But people still know him as Herastrau. It's very big, you need a few hours to make a complete tour of the park. There are a lot of alleys shaded by very old trees, from place to place there are terraces hidden by the green thicket, where you can stop for a drink. There are playgrounds for children, a large lake, where you can go by little ships or by boat, some restaurants (expensive, most of them). There's even a small japanese garden, unfortunately not very well maintained.

In my opinion, Herăstrău is the most relaxing park in all Bucharest. The lake full of little boats, its many diverse restaurants, the scenery itself are all worth the trip!

I used to be a student at a university nearby and Herăstrău park was one of my favorite places to visit.
Lots of alleys where to go on bicicle, restaurants to eat (quite expensive though), even a place where to get a boat on the lake (not sure if they did actually opened it, back when i was student it was not functional).
It is allways clean.
There are benches to sit on everywhere.
I especially recommend everyone to make a trip all around the lake, it is a long walk that can take half an hour or more, depending on your speed but it is worth for the views.
In may 2021 i visited again and things have gone better somewhat, with more vendors open and with much less people (probably it was due to the pandemic and due to the fact thqt most people work during the week...in weekend most likely it is crowded).
You have many means of transportation to everywhere you would need in the city and from anywhere. Not sure about the metro , but bus, tram and taxi you can find at any street corner.
There are museums very close so one can see more then one objective in one go, plus the Arc of Triumph (Arcul de Triumf).
I also recommend a trip alongside Kiseleff Road to see the Palace of Free Press.
For me, it is deffinetly a 5/5 stars.

premium things will have been included in the finishes and others, but the location leaves much to be desired - the smell of the Rudeni landfill, Romexpo at 2 steps = concerts, exhibitions, crowding and traffic Constanta bridge two steps away (in terms of pollution and car traffic) in the rest of the area? you barely have sidewalks, let alone parking spaces. a modern, typical crowd, for those who came to Bucharest a month ago and reached some loans for 50 years.
theoretically the respective area is the sanitary protection area, up to Flora and Casa Presei - but those who move will not care - it has nothing if you make your needs from where you drink water.
