Why locals love it

This stylish park is located in a very quiet neighborhood and surrounded by beautiful old villas, only ten minutes’ walk from Piaţa Romană. It was created in 1870 from a former drained swamp by the land owner George Ioanid, a wealthy bookseller and publisher. The name “Ion Voicu” was given after a renowned violin player who lived in a house nearby.

Why you should visit it

Although very small, it is one of Bucharest’s finest. Being designed after the English and French landscape gardens, it has all the elements of an idyllic garden: a pavilion, a pond, a bridge and statues. You can relax after a tiresome walk through the streets of the city, take a lot of pictures or read a book.

Special tip

The park is wonderful in early spring, when the fruit trees are in full bloom.
