Cişmigiu Gardens is the biggest public garden in the centre of Bucharest and which is so characteristic for the city. You cannot say Bucharest without also saying Cişmigiu. For me and for the others inhabitants of the city, Cişmigiu is a traditional meeting point, and witness to so many love affairs or personal dramas.
The park was created in 1847 and since then it was restructured many times. Now it has the appearance of a German / Austrian stylish public garden of 1800s. During a walk through its alleys I always like to see again and again its springs, wells, romantic wooden bridges, its familiar lake which becomes an ice-skating arena during winter but on which everybody can navigate on boat during summer or its stone statues of important people like Romanian writers. Also, I like to see here an important collection of different species of trees or flowers.
Soon here it will be opened the ice skating arena so, if you are in the mood for some fun, you know where to find it.
Why I love it? Because I live next to it, because every morning I wake up hearing the birds and the frogs living here, because I hope(d) my love affairs witnessed by this place will last forever, because I’ve shared my most intimate thoughts here.
…Also because the spot has a scent of the past, because it mirrors the history of Bucharest and because… it defines Bucharest.
