Some of the photos from the old center of the Bucharest
Photo old center of the Bucharest. We took some pictures with some important buildings from the center of Bucharest. In the period when Bucharest has been called “little Paris”, the architecture was almost the same like in France. You can see the resemblance in the photos. Cismigiu Garden is a quiet romantic place, close to the center of the city and was open in 1854 by Gheorghe Bibescu the Voivode. The Viennese peisagist, Carl Friedrich Wilhelm Meyer, has arranged the park being brought about 30,000 trees and shrubs around the city, and ornamental plants from Brasov and Vienna .The park is full of legends. Many important people of those times, ladies and young men, writers, officers, actors, poets, were having rendez-vous in this park as it was the main promenade of the city. The lake with little boats floating makes you feel like in a fairy tale. After 1910 the architect F. Rebhun contributed to the current view of the park, arranged the central ground in the form of an unbroken carpet of alleys, completing it with linden trees plantation vertical elements and created many roses gardens. Today it is a park for people in love, many young couples find the taste of the first french kiss.
