Follow the meandering alleys of Cismigiu Gardens along the shores of an artificial lake adorned with statues, memorials, and the capital's first newspaper stand. Designed in the mid-19th century, the garden showcases trees brought in from the Romanian mountains, as well as exotic plants from the Viennese botanical gardens. The highlights of the gardens include the "Romanian round," featuring busts of important Romanian writers, and two war memorials dedicated to French and American soldiers. The marble monument of French heroes depicts a grieving mother pouring water from a pitcher. The garden is also home to cafes, refreshment kiosks, summer terraces, children's playgrounds, and a restored 1920s restaurant.

  • Very nice park in the heart of Bucharest. It has entertaining areas like boating and romantic areas like lovers alley. You can also find some nice terraces to have a beer or a hot cocoa in winter time as well as a restaurant if you would like to eat with a nice park view.
  • This place has the potential to be a major tourist attraction. However it is unkempt and the beautiful lake has been drained to make an ice rink which looks horrible as well. The park on its own is laid out so well and should be renovated so that it pulls in more people to enjoy it. Verdict ——- Not Recommendable at this point!!! 😕😕😕
