Cişmigiu Park is one of my favourite places in Bucharest. In my college days I used to stroll these paths almost every day, hand in hand with my sweetheart, talking about our plans and the world as we saw it through the eyes of two 20 year olds. Back in those days I used to spend a considerable amount of time in Cişmigiu. After I graduated and started to work, I rarely found the time to go to the park. But since starting this blog I’ve been passing through Cişmigiu a lot, in search for subjects to photograph. I always find something worth photographing there, like the black swan or the patriotic benches that I showed to you on previous posts. Cişmigiu has some nice landmarks or points of attraction which I have yet to photograph so I have plenty of reasons to return to the park. Today’s photo shows one of these landmarks, “The Sissi Spring”. This beautiful statue was created by the sculptor Dimitriu Bârlad (1890-1964) and depicts a mother mourning the death of her daughter, pouring water from a pitcher. The engraving reads “Dedicated to my beloved daughter Sissi Stefanidi”.
