  • Timisoara center . Lots of events during the year. Many restaurants and coffe shops. It can get crowded in the weekends especially in summer time.
  • One of the best places in town. Great building all around, except 1.
  • A regular east-european city square. Sometimes there's a market on one end. Leads to other parks and famous landmarks.
  • Nice location to hangout. I recommend the ice cream at Segafredo
  • Really nice place. Looks like it is part of some huge town.
