… in Herăstrău Park. Not as big as the name would have you believe but most likely perceived as huge by the little ones.
November 10th, 2010.
Today’s posting ends a long period of time that has gone by without any daily photos. This time I do have an excuse – other than not having time or being lazy 🙂 – and that is that I’ve been away from Bucharest since the beginning of August. I miss home a lot and I’m looking forward to returning at the end of December. As you probably guessed already today’s photo is from my archives. This year I’ve missed the entire fall season in my city. I took the photo last year (2010) around mid-November in Cișmigiu Park.
Finally. The sun is out today after four days of depressing grey skies. I hope all weekend’s going to be sunny, same as it was last weekend when I took a stroll through Herăstrău park and shot the photos that I’m posting today.
Herăstrău Park, “Hercules Fighting the Centaur” by Ion Jalea, dated 1925.
Yes, I know, it’s another of my Cişmigiu photos, but I can’t help it, I love this park. Everytime I pass through it I have to stop and take a photo 🙂
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.
Today’s photos show the lake in the Park of the Circus (Parcul Circului in Romanian) with its beautiful lotuses. The Park of the Circus was landscaped in 1961.
Since the reflection photo was such a success (6 comments! 🙂 ) I decided to post a few more pictures from Alexandru Ioan Cuza (IOR) park.
