Right in the heart of Bucharest, Cismigiu Gardens are an oasis of relaxation and tranquility. Cismigiu Park is the biggest and the most beautiful park in the city center.
The history of this park begins in 1779 when 2 fountains were built here near a small lake. Later on, a garden was constructed under the supervision of Wilhelm Mayer and Franz Harer, two well-known landscape architects. Finally, the park was completed around 1860.
Trees and plants were brought from different corners of the country and even from Wien.
During the summer, small boats sail up and down the lake and during the winter the lake is used for open-air skating. You can sit and relax on one of the benches in the park or a have a coffee in a summer - terrace near the lake.
