Very nice and clean location, amazing park and churches! These locations are full of history behind but of course , very little explained. Tombs of Romanian kings , Manole's fountain, a lot of small restaurants, souvenirs shops.. Just a pleasant visit!

Don't forget to buy tickets in the shop at the entrance. The park is free and is beautifully maintained and colourful.
