"Carol's Park ? unusual castle" Top 5 Page for this destination Carol Park Tip by josephescu

Carol Park, Bucharest: 7 reviews and 25 photos


You can see its tower (and, presumably, a flag) from the top of the funeral monument, looking to your right. Converted from a water tower when the park was built, the small castle was meant to remember the reign of Vlad Tepes (aka Dracula). Now the castle is closed to public except one day/year (24th may?!), and it serves as a museum of some sort.....

Review Helpfulness: 4 out of 5 stars
