About KISELEFF Park Bucharest
Kiseleff Park is located in the triangle created by the Ion Mihalache Boulevard, Aviatorilor Boulevard and Ion Mincu Street.
The park was arranged after the year 1832, year in which was built Kiseleff Road, under the close guidance of Karl Wilhelm Mayer (the director of the Imperial Gardens of Vienna and also the landscaper who had been in charge of arranging the Cismigiu Garden, demanded by ruler G. Bibescu).
Kiseleff Park is a vivid area of 31, 690 square meters, with more than 2000 lime trees planted all over, flowers, pavilions and gazebos. Inside the park, there are several statues of some cultural icons: Nicolae Leonard, Ovid, Barbu Stefanescu Delavrancea. On the pedestal of the former statue of King Ferdinand has been placed the statue of the Iranian poet and astronomer Hakim Omar Khayyam. Also, the park is home of the complex of statues made by Romanian sculptor George Apostu. In the year of 2000, the park has been beautified with a new element: Monumentul Infanteriei Romane( The Monument of the Romanian Infantry), made out of bronze, by Romanian sculptor Ioan Bolborea.
Kisellef Park is a green oasis of freshness, a quiet garden animated once in a while by fairs, events, concerts or expositions. For those who enjoy moving in the fresh air are available bicycles that can be rented.
