Vacaresti Natural Park: the Newest Urban Delta

During communist years, a large area in Bucharest was cleared for a major project - but later abandoned. Over time, Mother Nature reconquered this land and turned it into a wonderful natural biosphere: a park with wetlands where many plants and animals now live! In 2016 Vacaresti Natural Park was granted protected status by law. Come with me to discover this unique Delta inside the city!

What you need to know about the Delta Vacaresti tour:

  • This is a walking tour in Bucharest private or for small groups. Duration: approx. 3 hours and start at 17:00
  • Visit the newest natural park in Romania which is also the biggest urban biosphere in Europe and meet the local rangers guarding it

Abandoned outdoor theater

One good thing our former communist dictator Ceausescu did was to build this outdoor theater which was later abandoned after the fall of communism. We will visit this place, admire the nice views and learn about the plans for its future!
