Photographer's Note

One might think that an outdoor public park would shut down in winter and that it would remain empty until the thawing spring. Not so with Cismigiu Gardens. When the freezing winter months come, the lake turns into an ice skating rink, complete with small vendors selling food items, coffee, and boiled wine (vin fiert), a Romanian tradition to warm up on a cold winterís day. Attracting visitors of all ages and from all walks of life, Cismigiu Gardens is truly the soul of Bucharest, reflecting perfectly the melting pot city and the many pleasures it has to offer.
