Below it's a traditional house from the Arges county, I highlight it as this is the region from where my grandparents come.
Part of the family :) me in the window on the left & my parents walking in the park on the right
And as you might already know, I am very proud of our national blouse (ie) and so here some models you could by within the museum.
Believe it or not, it was my first time in this Park. To be fair it is a bit far from my house but still. The park is clean and nicely maintained and you have a few things you can check out around.
"The mausoleum was built in honor of revolutionary socialist militants. Designed by architects Horia Maicu and Nicolae Cucu, it was inaugurated on 30 December 1963, the 16th anniversary of the Romanian People's Republic." (source)
Below you have on the left one of the Giants' Statues and on the right Dimitrie Leonida Technical Museum. In the middle and old tree and one of the favorite activities of old people in Romania, Backgammon table
"Located in front of the park’s main entrance, the fountain dates from 1935 when it was built for the first edition of a popular celebration called “The Bucharest Month”. “The Bucharest Month” had only six editions being held every year between May 9 and June 9 until the starting of the war in 1940. The fountain, looking like a huge footed serving bowl was designed by architect Octav Doicescu and erected by the architects August Schmiedigen and Dorin Pavel. Its name comes from the twelve mosaic representations of the zodiac signs made by scultptor Mac Constantinescu." (Source)
This is the park where i was going very often during my childhood with my parents. I enjoyed it a lot as it's big and you can run around all you want. you can link visiting the park with passing by the "arc de triomphe" (below), the media house (casa presei) or the village museum.
You can take the opportunity of cycling, running or even skateboarding in the Park.
or enjoy the views over the lake, btw in case you like eating "up in the sky", the round building you is is called NOR Sky Bucharest, offering a nice view over the city.
And so I hope you end up with a very active and nice day in Bucharest
