About DIMITRIE GHICA Park Sinaia
The ‘Dimitrie Ghica’ Park has been created in the year of 1881 under the close guidance of the Swiss landscape architect, Eder. The alleys inside the park are bordered by century-old trees, shrubs and coloured rounds of flowers. Each year, the park becomes the venue for the ‘Sinaia Forever’ Festival, concerts and different types of events. Also, during winter time, those who like ice-skating can enjoy the rink installed in the park. The park has playgrounds for children and a large fountain on which are, sometimes, available guided boats that can be rented.
Along the alleys that cross the surface of the park, there are statues representing the busts of Romanian personalities who have lived or visited the city of Sinaia: Mihai Eminescu, Ion Creanga, Nicolae Balcescu, Dimitrie Ghica. In addition to that, at the entrance of the park, there is the bust of the actor Ion ( Iancu ) Brezeanu who has been named The Honorary Citizen of Sinaia. At the end of the park facing the casino, can be found a little museum-The Musem of the Bucegi Reserve.
