  • Very nice square, which includes the Cathedral and the Opera House. At the center of the square of immaculate flowerbeds and around, shops and bars. Very evocative square in the evening, with the illuminated fountain of different colors.

  • Timisoara was for centuries a Hungarian city until the year 1919. To get here is the historic confirmation of this fact. The place is beautiful. It is a large pedestrian street full of restaurants, bars and pubs on both sides. In an external Cathedral Orthodox and the other stands the Opera. The most impressive thing to me was the architectural style of the surrounding buildings. Most of the roofs are beautiful.

  • Nice place hang around. Lots of doves if you like them. You can also feed them
  • Was just walking by there, but the place is clean, well maintained and resambles the era it was built in wery well. I liked the whole old town.
  • Luv the opera building! There is some restoration going to take place. The 5 stars is for after that...
  • The opera and the cathedral are very beautiful inside and outside... You can eat relax here. Most concerts of Timisoara are located here.
  • This is the heart of the city. You can't say you visited Timișoara if you didn't see Piața Victoriei. You'll find almost everything here from food to clothes shops and, of course, tourist attractions. It has tons of history and people gather here to participate at all kinds of social events.
