Unirii Square, Timisoara
(4.4/5 based on 340+ reviews on the web)
Named for the sight of the Roman Catholic and the Serbian Orthodox temples facing each other, Unirii Square reflects the city's tolerant spirit. In the past, the square hosted religious ceremonies and military parades; today it serves as a stage for cultural events. The area's most notable buildings include the palace of the former prefecture, the bishop's residence executed in the "national Serbian" style, and the Viennese Baroque palace that houses an art collection. Notice the Baroque Statue of the Trinity, depicting the plague, famine, and war, in the middle of the square. The square also features an 18th-century fountain that once supplied the city with drinking water.

  • The place is amazing! Really wide and open! You can chill and have fun overthere but there are no trees! 
  • It's like an oasis in the middle of the city - surrounded by fantastic architecture. Reminded me of St Marks square with some of the cafes and outdoor seating. 
  • This square is breathtaking so beautiful these historic buildings. Beautiful restored or working with it but the square also offers to cozy to sit and enjoy the environment. Also nice terraces to enjoy coffee in there. Very well maintained and also the soil there is proper.
