    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.

  • 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.
