“One of the biggest parks of Bucharest – Herăstrău Park – is definitely worth a visit. The park is home to numerous attractions, including a boat rental complex, tennis courts, and a rather old-fashioned fairground. In the summertime, many terraces open up on the shores of the lake.

Nightclub

“The terrace of Control Club might just be the best place in Bucharest to mingle with the locals and let conversations spark while queuing for a drink. Over the years got drawn into the electronic sphere, tuning into more obscure sounds. The consistent dedication and passion for music of the people behind it has rightfully earned them a loyal audience, not to mention the great ambient and spectacular urban terrace. If you happen to go by on a Tuesday, you’ll give yourself a present – all drinks are 50% off.”
