The twin Titan and Alexandru Ioan Cuza parks, in the unsexy yet perfectly safe neighbourhood of Titan-Balta Alba, have been given much love of late and are showing the benefit of millions of euros of investment. Whole terraces have been landscaped, lawns laid, playgrounds built and sports pitches placed at every turn. Look out too for the replica Maramures wooden church on the southern side of the park, on Str. Liviu Rebreanu. It was built in 1996 and has become one of the most popular churches in the city: on major religious holidays it is difficult to get close to the place. A heavy presence of security guards throughout the park (day and night) makes everyone feel safe and ensure that nothing is spoilt. Indeed, if you were on holiday elsewhere you’d say to yourself 'we will never have this kind of park in Bucharest.' Well, we have. There are plenty of kiosks serving refreshments, as well as ice cream stands. On summer weekend evenings there is usually something going at the main bandstand: either a band or children's entertainers.
