Where to go to get away from the noise of the city? One of the places we can visit when we want to get away from the noise of the city, relax in nature, and gather our thoughts is the park. We do not mean noisy amusement parks full of attractions. These magnificent city parks with small ponds, green nature, and fresh air.

There are examples of these famous parks in every country. We have explored the 5 largest parks in the world, having the most significant area and visitors.

1. Amsterdam, Vondelpark


Vondelpark is one of the largest city parks opened in 1865, with an area of 120 hectares. Although it was initially Nieuwe Park, it was dedicated to Joost van den Vondel, a 17th-century writer. About 10 million people annually visit the park. The park has over 2,000 benches for relaxation. There are more than 500 species of trees growing here. The total number of trees is 5,000.

Along with the free concerts, performances, the park provides the ideal relaxation for everyone through the dedicated lines for bike lanes and walking. It is possible to meet here, even different kinds of animals. Squirrels, woodpeckers on the tree, ducks and geese on the lake, and various types of rabbits are some of the sweetest examples of animals you can see in this one of the famous parks.

It is like a paradise to rest here, away from the noise of the city. The Dutch are fortunate enough.
