Timisoara

— 5 nights
Timișoara is the capital city of Timiș County, and the main social, economic and cultural centre in western Romania.The third most populous city in the country, with 319,279 inhabitants as of the 2011 census, Timișoara is the informal capital city of the historical region of Banat. Bring the kids along to Piata Victoriei and Timisoara Historical Center. Step out of Timisoara with an excursion to City Hall in Arad--about 1h 5 min away. There's still lots to do: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Timisoara Orthodox Cathedral, don't miss a visit to Unirii Square, take in nature's colorful creations at Parcul Rozelor, and get engrossed in the history at Memorialul Revolutiei.

Landmarks · Castles · Churches
Western Romania has large swathes of undeveloped areas where you can discover a variety of prehistoric ruins, medieval fortresses, and abandoned citadels. Timisoara, the region's main social and cultural city, is an architecturally beautiful city with colorful Baroque-style townhouses lining its squares. While perhaps less familiar to foreign tourists, this part of Western Romania hosts many festivals and has several performing arts centers, which draw visitors from the region and wider Romania.
