This is just a must do (& free) option for Bucharest. It’s beautiful, well set out, peaceful and well worth the visit. The other side has the cultural village which is also worth exploring.

It’s a very big park with a very big lake inside. I saw sail boats on the lake. We rent a bike from the park bike rental. We made a full tour around the lake in 50 minutes(not very fast).
