CISMIGIU PARK HISTORY

HOW A MUDDY LAKE BECAME AN AWESOME GARDEN

Cismigiu Park in Bucharest was a dirty and muddy lake on its place, with underground water sources, in the mid 17th century. A will was built here in 1779 and the houses of the great ministry of waters at that time, Dumitru Suiulgi-basa, called the great Cismigiu, which in Romanian was the waters and wills owner. The area has been a danger for the public health until 1830 and it was also a danger because the floods provoked by the River Dambovita and the like itself. One of the youngest, let’s say, parks in Bucharest is the CIRCUS PARK, where you can see rare trees, flowers and the famous turtles in the lake in the area.

In 1830, the general Pavel Kiseleff, the Russian governor of the two Romanian provinces demanded a public garden to replace the old lake in Bucharest at Cismigiu. In 1848 the lake and the land were bought by the authorities who also asked Carl Friedrich Wilhelm Meyer, a landscape painter from Wien to come and build a garden. Meyer decided to plant 30.000 trees in the new park, built flower carpets and footpaths and in 1852, when he died, a small wall was also built to surround the garden. All the works ended in 1854 and the official inauguration took place on 22 March 1860. It was Cismigiu Park or Cismigiu Garden as it is usually known…

Cismigiu Garden in Bucharest actual shape is the masterpiece of Francisc Rebhuhn, who had just arranged Cotroceni Garden and who built not only artificial stones, bridges, small caves and islands but also brought fish and swans inside a Zoo. Much later, another park, CAROL PARK  will offer the inhabitants a larger space but also bridges, small caves and so on. One of the first newspapers kiosks in Bucharest was placed in Cismigiu Garden and can still be seen today. So, if you travel to Bucharest, a restaurant has been the main attraction in the Park, on the island in the middle of the lake. It was built in 1886 but in burnt at the end of the first world war. It was called Monte Carlo and was replaced in 1926 by another construction which fell during the great earthquake that hit Bucharest in 1940.
