Icoanei Garden is one of the small parks of central Bucharest and one of my favorite places to enjoy a bit of peace and quiet whenever I find myself in the neighborhood. Located close to the Roman Square and Magheru boulevard, the park has a triangular shape, formed by the A. Verona, A. D. Xenopol and Jean Louis Calderon streets. The garden was set out in 1870 – 1875 by draining of a swamp that was the result of the spring of Bucureştioara river (a tributary of river Dâmboviţa) becoming silted up.
