Parcul Cismigiu

Parcul Cismigiu is the oldest public park in Bucharest and is a wonderful place to hang out and absorb a welcome moment of peace amidst the rush of this quickly changing capital. The gardens' creation was an important moment in the history of Bucharest as hey form the oldest (dating from 1847, at a time when Bucharest was the capital of Wallachia) and, at 17 hectares, the largest park in city's central area.

One of the principal attractions is the Monumentul Eroilor Francezi ("The Monument of French Heroes") which commemorates French soldiers who died fighting during the World War I Romanian Campaign. Another notable statue, Izvorul Sissi Stefanidi, created by Ioan C. Dimitriu Bârlad (1890–1964), depicts a mother, aggrieved by the death of her daughter, pouring water from a pitcher.

The main entrance is from Regina Elisabeta Boulevard, in front of the City Hall; there is another major entrance at the Stirbei Voda Street, near the Cretulescu Palace.
