EUR is a residential and business district in Rome, located south of the city center. First of all seems like to be in another city. The area was originally chosen in 1930s as the site for the 1942 World's Fair. The letters EUR stand for Esposizione Universale Roma. The project was originally called E42 after the year in which the exhibition was planned to be held. The planned exhibition never took place due to World War II.
One of the best parts is for sure the Parco Centrale del Lago (Central Park of the Lake), the green lung of this part of the city, developed around an artificial lake.
An important spot of the park is the “Passeggiata del Giappone” (Japanese Walk) rich in cherry trees donated by Japan which start blooming in the end of March. I had a fortune to be there just during days of their maximum blooming. And it was definitely worth to take rain I took.
