Fodor's Expert Review Comana Natural Park
Southern Romania's largest protected area is in Comana, a commune of five small villages. The park covers more than 60 acres and its management has done a great job catering to families and outdoors enthusiasts. Bike trails run through the forest (bicycles are available for hire), and there are tennis and basketball courts, a pick-your-own garden with herbs and vegetables, a few restaurants serving local cuisine, and an adventure park where kids (and eager adults) can climb trees and a rock wall, ride horses, and practice archery. You can fish, kayak, and canoe within the park and watch birds in the protected bird area. Weekends are quite crowded; come early.
