Spending winter vacation in Bucharest can be fun, and if you wonder if there are any winter sports you can practice here, we have some answers.
The metropolis doesn't have ski lanes, but you can practice some winter sports in a more unusual way.
If there is snow, you can go to Tineretului Park for a toboggan run. Just know that you have to take your own equipment and remember to wear some heavy clothes. This place is the unofficial "ski lane of Bucharest."
The only indoor artificial ski lane in Bucharest is Santa Claus Kingdom inside Atlas Business Center. The lane is 32 meters long and 6 meters wide, suitable for everyone, mostly for beginners. If you want to learn skiing this is the place, as they have equipment and coaches. It is opened from Monday to Friday between 13p.m.-21p.m. and on weekend between 10 a.m.-21 p.m. We recommend this place, especially for families with children.
The most practiced winter sport in Bucharest is Ice Skating. Just recently, a new huge rink was inaugurated near Bucharest, in Otopeni city. Afi Palace Cotroceni mall has a rink inside that offers equipment and beginners lessons. The best rink in the capital city is the one in Cismigiu Park encased in the waterless lake's bed. It is the biggest artificial open air rink in Bucharest and it spreads on 3000 sqm. It has a wardrobe and rental services. You can find it on Queen Elisabeth Boulevard, open from Monday to Sunday between 10 a.m. – 11 p.m.
