  • Visit the Arts Museum
  • Enjoy the Union Square
Full description
Situated on the northern bank of the Bega River in the Banat region, Timisoara impresses everyone with its charming and vibrant cultural life, and its rich historical heritage. Take your time to discover the first European city that used the horse-drawn trams (1869) and electrical street lightning (1889).  Timisoara was also the first Romanian city that reacted at the Revolution in 1989 against the Communist regime.

The walking tour begins in the downtown quarter of “Cetate” (the former “Inner City”), with many old buildings in the styles of Art Nouveau or Baroque, large pedestrianized squares, and a general multicultural character. You will begin with a visit to Victory Square, known also by the name of Opera Square, enjoying a visit to the impressive Orthodox Cathedral, and the Opera and Theater House.

Next, the Liberty Square hosts the Old City Hall with its Turkish inscription, showing again the mixture of cultures and religions who have lived here. The Union Square is dominated by the Catholic dome-church, the Serbian-Orthodox Cathedral and by the President's Palace – the Arts Museum. Also, walk through the interesting ruins of the old fortress, constructed in the Vauban Style.
