4.4/5 based on 950+ reviews on the web
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.

  • Undoubtedly, one of the most beautiful gardens in Europe, together with the Tuileries in Paris. Be sure to pay a visit to the black swans 
  • Cișmigiu Gardens is a decent sized park and is really nice to still around and escape the city. In the centre of the park is a Cișmigiu Lake where you can hire a row boat for a couple of lei, highly r...  read more »

  • Curat, pazit. Terasele sunt un plus
  • A beautiful park located in the city centre. You can walk through the alleys arround the lake or this can be an ideal location for your jogging. You can even rent a boat! The park is very old, arranged in the english gardens style and it is still looking great today, being vey well cared. Thre is a lot of vegetation and old trees, the only downside is that there are also a lot of birds, so beware and don't seat on a bench under the favourite trees of the birds :)
  • A must see for any local or tourist in Bucharest. Initially they were built as gardens in the late 19th century but now it is a green oasis in the middle of the concrete jungle. You can take a small boate on the lake, ride a bike or eat an ice cream. Very close to the city center.
  • Lovely place. One of the most beautiful park I've seen. Full-grown trees, many lakes, perfect for picknicks, kioks for refreshments, beer.
  • Colt de micul paris
