Once a forest, this park was designed around the year 1850, by landscape architect Karl Wilhelm Mayer, designer of the Imperial Gardens in Vienna.
The Kiseleff Boulevard is an important road that connects Victoriei Square and House of Free Press. Along this path there are a series of museums such as the Peasant Museum, the Natural History Museum “Grigore Antipa” and the Geology Museum. This roadway was initially thought as a residential area for the bourgeois, one of Queen Mary’s favorite promenade road, where nowadays it is known to be a specific area for diplomatic houses & embassies. There are lots of green areas, parks, artificial lakes, sculptures & kiosks, where as you go along this route, one can admire and learn the stories of each monument.
