Full description
This tour will start with a brief introduction about the country’s situation today, so you get a feel for Romania and a basic understanding of the story of Timisoara. Learn the history of the city, starting with the Mongol invasion centuries ago through the contemporary revolution against the communist regime in Romania.

During the tour, hear about the years of the Turkish occupation and see where the Turkish public bath, the bazaar, or the Central Mosque used to be located in the past. Everything changed when Timisoara was conquered by the Austrian imperial troops at the beginning of the 18th century. The city was completely rebuilt during that time. Wooden buildings from the Middle Ages disappeared and new streets and houses, as well as a fortification system were set up.

Learn about how one of the first trams in the world to connect people from the suburbs to the city center was built in Timisoara. Timisoara was also the first place in continental Europe, where electric street lights were used. Discover these and many more interesting and entertaining facts, anecdotes, and stories on this walking tour.
