great hiking well marked, delicate passage in the hurnul, (especially in case of bad weather) so that the return by the same path can be complicated. we continued after galcescu to join the forest road (marking less present at the edge of the forest) and arrived at the bottom of the transalpina ~ 5h30

Very nice trail, various gorgeous landscapes. Not too difficult, more intermediate. 4 hours.

It's hard to find much info on trails in Romania unless you speak Romanian. we were hoping to hike all the way to the peak but only made it to the incredible scenic and totally worth it cabin. it took us about two hours up from the parking area next to the fountain and we followed the yellow stripe between two white stripes. it was clearly marked basically the entire way. there was good tree cover and there were a couple places to refill water but I'm still glad I brought a liter and a half. at the cabin we had a espressos and placinta (cake) and felt like proper cultured folk. we went down via the blue stripe that changed to the yellow bullseye in a white circle. it was totally different and I highly recommend doing this loop way, shows a completely different side. just keep walking down the trail until it becomes a dirt road and then follow that until it returns to the fountain where you parked your car. boom baby, I did the work for you.

Easy trail for dogs and families. The whole loop can be done in less than 2 hours. Shade most of the trail. Great view at the top!

One of the most amazing, beautiful, scenic montain I ever hiked. It was actually my first big hike 16years ago. I returned 3 times there. Did it from both starting points (Durau and Izvorul Muntelui) therefore this loop was my favorite. I went there again this year with my 13yo son and with my brother. Hiked up by Duruitoarea and climbed down by Fantanele which I found more difficult now because of more conglomerate rocks that now are linning the trail which makes it very difficult for the descent.

It’s a great trail to get up to the Brasov sign and beyond for some gorgeous views. If it’s recently rained, just trail becomes muddy but it’s also a clay like mud so that with the slick rocks makes the trail quite slick, so just be aware. The little out and back at before beginning the loop back to the trailhead is a little confusing for me. There are some great trails back there that could be explored more, but I don’t know why the turnaround is where it is unless it’s just to make the distance a round 3.5 miles. Just don’t expect a viewpoint at that out and back turnaround. On the other hand, if you have time, keep going and explore the nice trails on that side of the mountain.

Long and gentle-slope hiking up the mountain. The trail is covered by trees but not too dense. There are several turns that you can take a quick stop. The final stop, at the top looking down to the city, is incredible!

Băneasa forest is still the widest green space in Bucharest’s administrative territory, 3 to 4 times the size of Herăstrău and Tineretului parks. Băneasa Forest borders Tunari Forest and together they make up a microclimate for the area. Here, the temperature is a few degrees lower than in downtown Bucharest. This is Bucharest’s only forest, offering a breath of fresh air, and it is also a good place to go running or cycling along short routes. The infrastructure could use some improvements, from indicators to ecological benches and even lighting. Even more so, a series of courts for sport and other similar activities would come in handy. https://izi.travel/it/e5e2-baneasa-forest/en

Lacul Morii ("Mill Lake") is the largest lake in Bucharest, with an area of 246 ha. The lake is approximately 6 km from the center of Bucharest (Piața Unirii) and is located between: Polytechnic University of Bucharest neighborhood to the East, Crangaşi and Giulești districts at North, Militari district at South. The type of it is accumulation lake, made in 1986 mainly to protect the city against floods.[3] It is also a recreation area. It provides a constant flow on Dâmboviţa river in the capital. The lake was built by a dam 15 m high, with a central body of concrete, earth dams extended lengthwise with a total length of 7 km. Lake volume is 14.7 million m³, with a flood mitigation portion of 1.6 million m³, beyond the normal retention. Effectively, to mitigate flooding, the lake volume can be increased when floods are predicted. Making a lake near an urban area required decommissioning of existing uses, including demolition and decommissioning of a church. On the south of Lacul Morii there is a peninsula. Projects for Lacul Morii There are projects to make Lacul Morii a travel destination. There are also projects to make the Lacul Morii area a modern residential, commercial and business area. Another project is a highway tunnel which will link Lacul Morii to the Civic Center (Piața Unirii) and the A1 freeway.

I enjoyed very much this walk in Herastrau Park. It took me almost 2 hours and the weather was fantastic. I stopped at every interesting spot to take some pictures and to know more about this place. It was very relaxing to do it. If you come to Bucharest, enjoy this park with many tourist attractions.
