Cismigiu is Bucharest's oldest park, a wonderful and lovely garden where you can relax and enjoy a little break from the city crowd. Cismigiu Garden was opened to the public in 1860. This beautiful park was designed in 1845 by the German landscape architect Carl Meyer, while its name “Cismigiu”, comes from the Turkish “cismea” that means “public fountain”. The park houses over 30000 trees and plants that were brought from the Romanian Mountains, and also exotic plants imported from Vienna’s botanical gardens.
In this amazing park you can find a boat rental complex, a few open-air restaurants and terraces, some playgrounds and a chess zone.
