Walking Tour of Timisoara [2023 European Capital of Culture]

Mark-Alex With: Mark-Alex 15
Timisoara is the 3rd largest Romanian city with a fascinating history! Caught Ottoman Empire expansion and Habsburg (Austrian) monarchy, the city always had a rebel and independent spirit. It's where the anti-communist revolution of 1989 began! Join me on this guided tour of Timisoara to learn the city's history, see its major sights and discover its Art Nouveau beauty!

Moments to expect during the Timisoara walking day trip:

  • Victory Square

    Our starting point for this tour of Timisoara will be the splendid Art Nouveau inspired Victory Square, one of the most important hotspots in the city, centrally located. Did you know that Timisoara is the European Capital of Culture in 2023? I can tell you more about the city's plans!

  • Maria Theresia Bastion

    Maria Theresia Bastion

    This last-standing bastion was part of a defensive structure built 300 years ago by the Habsburg Empire in response to military technological advancements of those times (gun powder and cannons). What today seems trivial, in those times was considered state-of-the-art strategy and planning. Today, it's a cool place where the locals hang out and have fun.

  • Admire 'Little Vienna'

    Admire 'Little Vienna'

    The city had a Vienna-inspired aristocratic life in the 18-19th century, with splendid, imperial looking buildings scattered all over its main squares. A superb mix of Baroque and Art Nouveau architecture, I will show you the best spots in the city to admire what was once called 'Little Vienna' and tell you more about those times.

  • Enjoy a typical street snack
