Best Terraces & Gardens in Bucharest in 2024

05 Apr 2024

Summers can get stifling hot in Bucharest, although nowadays we suppose that's also the case for most countries, so shouldn't really come as any big surprise. But if you can't stand the heat, there's no need to despair, as the Romanian capital offers ample opportunities to cool off that don't necessitate sitting in front of an AC at home or roaming about a climate controlled shopping mall.

Aside from splashing about in one of the city's many fine water parks and swimming pools, our favourite summer activity is lounging around in one of the relaxing gardens of the venues presented below. Of course this is by no means an exhaustive list, and you can find lots more fabulous cafés around town here.
