La Metoc – Without any hesitation one of our favorite and most local gardens is “La Metoc”. It is literally the front garden of an old house of Bucharest, cosy being the perfect word to describe it. Stepping inside you will immediately feel like entering into a magic world where time stops, where you can truly relax. The garden is located in the Armenian Neighborhood, just 10 minutes away from University square, giving you in opportunity to truly explore Bucharest

Eden – The concept of Eden explains the real life of locals, being the secret garden hidden in the heart of the city. People of Bucharest have been always hiding from the hot summer getting cold lemonade or ice cream even since the 19th century when the trend of spending all your summer nights in the gardens began. Eden is hiding behind one of our most beloved palaces, Palatul Stirbey, a forgotten palace in time, but not by us: hammocks, crickets and of course beer! The name says it all…
Monteoru – Another example of beautiful architecture that we can experience here through its garden: Palace in front, garden in the back! “Open Monteoru”, the home of a big bourgeois family from Bucharest is situated on the Victory Boulevard, the most elegant boulevard of Bucharest and gathers there music lovers, local artists and good beverages!
