Cismigiu Park is a pleasant little park, located a short walk from the People?s Palace in the heart of Bucharest city centre. The park lies just north of Bulevardul Regina Elisabeta.

Within the park, you will find a handful of outdoor cafes. On the sunny and mild spring afternoon that my friend and I visited in March 2008, the park was bustling with families and friends enjoying an afternoon in the sunshine?and spare seats at the cafes were few and far between.

After a while, we found a free table at a lakeside café, and whiled away a care-free afternoon sitting beneath the green Heineken-sponsored parasols drinking cold bottles of Ciuc beer (4.5 Lei / 1 GBP per 500ml bottle) and watching the world go by. The drinks menu offered a choice of bottled beers (no draught beers), a variety of bottled ?alcopops?, wines, spirits, soft drinks and coffees. A small food menu (entirely in Romanian) was also available, but most people were content to sit and chat with just a drink.

A more perfect spring scene would have been difficult to find anywhere in Bucharest ? the trees were blossoming, the thick winter coats had been left at home and the warm sunshine had put the spring back in people?s steps (well, mine at least!). The only shame was that the artificial lake beside the café was dry at the time of our visit ? but in the summer months when it is filled, I believe it is possible to hire out small boats.

The perfect spot for an outdoor drink on a balmy afternoon!
