Carol Park


Even if the Carol Park is smaller, it has many attractions: the Tower of Vlad the Impaler that shelters a water reservoir, and the “Monument of the unknown soldier”, brought in 1991 from Marasesti. Then the “Giants” statues, made by the sculptor Dumitru Paciurea, and the “Cantacuzino Fountain”, an art monument in the neoclassical style, built in 1870, decorated with bas-reliefs and ceramic plates representing medieval knights and blazons on the façade and sides. Inside the Carol Park are the “Roman Arenas”, with a capacity of 5500 places in the open air, a place for shows attracting many visitors.

Also, here is the Technical Museum “Prof. Eng. Dimitrie Leonida” that was inaugurated in 1909 and reorganized in 1954.

A specimen of “Sequoia Gigantea”, a tree declared a monument of nature, cannot remain unnoticed.
