1. Oradea: 3-Hour Private Cultural Tour
Explore one of the most important economic, social, and cultural centers in Western Romania on a 3-hour walking tour. Your local guide will pick you up at your hotel in central Oradea and you will continue on foot to the city fortress. Recently renovated with European funds, this fortress was first time mentioned in 1113 and over the centuries was conquered by Tatars, Turks, and Habsburg Empire. Next, visit the central part of the town. Admire the Secession-style buildings, an architectural trend common in many cities that belonged to the Austro-Hungarian empire. The knowledgable guide will tell you more about this interesting style while pointing out examples of Baroque, Neo-Classic, Eclectic, Neo-Gothic, and Neo-Romanesque architecture in the city. Take in the views from atop the Town Hall before returning to the accommodation with your guide on foot.
