“My favorite park in Bucharest”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

The park was named after King Carol I of Romania, inaugurated in 1906, on the 40th anniversary of the coronation of King Carol I.

It hosts the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, inaugurated in 1923 in memory of Romanian soldiers fallen in World War I, was dismantled and moved in 1958 to Mărășești, being replaced by a Mausoleum of the Communist Heroes. The monument was moved back to the park in 1991.

Now you can only see the monument but it is guared by two soldiers and cannot be visited.

The park can be visited year round and every season it has something special to offer.

“Great place for history and sports”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

It si a great place for history and sports.

You can see the Mausoleum and you can also go rollerblading or biking on it's hills.
Great place for jogging also.
Bonus: there is a railway museum just near the park so if you like, you can take a look at the old steam locomotives.

“a nice park”
Reviewed May 25, 2013

It is a nice park, crossed by a wide alley that starts at the main entry and ends at the “Mausoleum” – a huge monument . From the top of this alley (there are stairs in the second part of the alley) you can enjoy the view of the whole park and also see some high buildings in Unirii Square (it is located at a few bus/tram stations from there). It is close to Tineretului park and to the Filaret bus station. I like it most in autumn: it has a special charm in that season :)
