Animal Farm (Ferma Animalelor)
Ferma Animalelor is a huge hit with children as it offers up-close experiences with farm animals. The animals are well looked after and a visit can include watching feeding time as well as opportunities to pet and feed the animals yourself (feed can be bought from the shop). Other activities on offer include the popular pony rides, puppet shows and a number of playground areas.
Although it is possible to get to the farm by public transport (full details are on the Ferma Animalelor website), most visitors will drive as the location is out of the city of Bucharest. There is an on site restaurant and the gift shop has a good range of items on sale. There is ample space on site for you to bring your own picnic too as there are picnic tables and grassy areas in the sun and the shade. You can easily spend half a day here with the animals and playing.
New: Ferma Animaleror offer kids parties (you can hire one of the shaded picnic areas for half a day) and a 12-month subscription ticket. The annual pass can be bought on the day of your visit (weekends can be busy though) or arranged in advance, and is well worth considering if you plan to visit more than 6 times a year.
