Children's Bucharest

more than a year ago

Spring and summer are the best seasons to visit Bucharest with kids, and there is plenty to keep children of all ages entertained.

The outdoor Village Museum is as good a place as any to start: its many houses, windmills and wooden churches - all of which can be explored - will fascinate young minds, while there are often activities at weekends for children who want a more hands-on experience. The excellent confectionery stall at the entrance, selling home-made sweets, cakes and such like, will also be a hit. Of the city’s other museums, the Peasant, Grigore Antipa Natural History and Technical are probably the most suited to children, particularly older kids. The Romanian National Opera puts on children’s matinees most weekend mornings at 11:00. The double-decker, opened-topped Bucharest City Tour buses are a hit with kids.

Bucharest is blessed with a number of good parks, and all of them have lots to offer. There are playgrounds in all of them, pleasure boat rides on the lake in Herastrau, rowing boats in both Herastrau and Cismigiu. Perhaps the park most suited to children however is Tineretului in the south of the city.
