Vacaresti Natural Park: the Newest Urban Delta

Stefan With: Stefan 2
During communist years, a large area in Bucharest was cleared for a future development - later abandoned. Over time, nature reconquered this patch of land and turned it into a wonderful natural biosphere park with many flora and fauna species living inside. In 2016 Vacaresti Natural Park was granted protected status by law. Join me in this unique discovery tour for real nature inside the city!

    One good thing our former communist dictator Ceausescu did was to build this outdoor theater which was later abandoned after the fall of communism. Offering great views, we will visit this place and find out if there are any plans to restore it.
