#2 of 116 in Parks in Romania
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.

Where to stay in Bucharest

To take advantage of Bucharest's lively downtown, look for accommodations in the areas of Universitatii square, Unirii, Romana, or Victoriei to be closest to bars, clubs, and restaurants, as well as many of the major sights. Choose from a variety of hostels and budget hotels, or book a night at one of the mid-range or luxury hotels. If you decide to venture farther out of the city, look for lodging close to public transportation to avoid the city's notoriously bad traffic.
