Carol Park (Parcul Carol)
With a history dating back to the early 1900s, Carol Park (Parcul Carol) is one of Bucharest’s oldest parks, built by French designer Eduard Redont to mark the Jubilee of King Carol I. With its glittering lake, tree-lined esplanade and landscaped gardens sprawling over 30 hectares in South Budapest, the park offers an idyllic retreat from the city, with ample space for walking, cycling and sports.  

The park is also home to a number of important monuments and has been listed as a National Historic monument since 2004. Most notable is the Mausoleum, originally built as a communist monument and later transformed into a WWI memorial, fronted by the Monument of the Unknown Soldier. Additional highlights include the early 20th-century Tepes Castle and a series of statues, including Filip Marin’s ‘Sleeping Beauty’ and the ‘Giant’s’ by Dumitru Paciurea and Frederic Storck.

Practical Info

Carol Park (Parcul Carol) is located close to Tineretului Park, just south of central Bucharest.

Communism Full Day with Lunch Included

Communism Full Day with Lunch Included

star-5
Local Hosts turns tourists into locals and locals into tourists. We know that during a tour it's best to stop for refreshments and quick bites! Thus, we've included lunch to all our tours. Join us for a different experience in small groups and off the beaten path views. This is a unique way to explore a seemingly forgotten story that has pushed the boundaries of endurance and has marked several generations of Romanians. A trip down-on-memory lane, appealing to all of your senses, that will unveil the city and its people with both good and bad sides, while allowing you to judge the progress and the downfall of a society for yourselves. To top everything up, we've included a drive through the Bronx of Bucharest where you'll witness the communist bedroom dormitories that defined (and still do) the last 50 years of Romanian social history. The experience includes access inside a former communist prison, transformed into a memorial and located within the biggest prison in Bucharest!
