Gheorghe Grigore Cantacuzino, from a noble family, was a politician, a Prime-Minister and a Mayor of Bucharest. He was so wealthy he was named “The Nabob”. He built the beautiful, adorned palace in Calea Victoriei, now “George Enescu Museum”. The fountain in Carol Park replaced a much more beautiful one, “Metropolite Filaret’s Fountain”, shot down in 1863. The present fountain, neoclassical in style, a gift to the city from the wealthy mayor, built in 1870 after the drawings of the architect Al. Freywald and with sculptures by Karl Storck, was recently restaurated.

The fountain would be cool with a little maintenance (full of leaves) and the water inside! Maybe during the summer this will be a 4 stars landmark!

A very old and beautiful fountain placed in Carol Park.Unfortunately the water is not running and the only water in the basin is rain water.

As you enter Carol Park, make a right on the little alley that goes uphill and you will find this wonderful fountain. Not so many people walk by it as it's not easy to spot from the main alley so the moment you descend the small stone steps to get close to it you may feel like going back in time. It is built in neoclassical style and it bears the name of George Grigore Cantacuzino, a nineteenth century political figure.
