About Timișoara

  • The first record of the city of Timisoara, built on the site of an ancient Roman fortress called Castrum Regium Themes, dates back to 1212.
  • Over the years, Timisoara, the largest city in western Romania, has been influenced by many cultures. The Romans used it as an important crossroads fortress until the Tatars destroyed it in the 13th century. Conquered by Turkish armies in 1552, Timisoara remained under their protection until 1718 when the region of Banat came under Austrian rule for two centuries.
  • Timisoara later became a vital commercial and manufacturing town. Turks, Austrians, Germans and Serbs all left their mark and their influence can be seen in neighborhoods throughout the city even today.
  • Timisoara was the first European city to introduce horse-drawn trams (in 1869) and electrical street lighting (in 1889);
  • Timisoara was built on a swamp; the Metropolitan Cathedral has 5000 oaks supports underneath it;
  • Johnny Weissmuller, Hollywood's original Tarzan, was born here.
  • Memorial Museum of the 1989 Revolution (Muzeul Revolutiei) Address: Str. Emanuil Ungureanu 8 (behind Piata Unirii)

Bucharest-Revolution Square

Revolution Square (Piata Revolutiei)-"The square gained worldwide notoriety when TV stations around the globe broadcasted Nicolae Ceausescu's final moments in power on December 21, 1989. It was here, at the balcony of the former Communist Party Headquarters, that Ceausescu stared in disbelief as the people gathered in the square below turned on him. He fled the angry crowd in his white helicopter, only to be captured outside of the city a few hours later. The square's importance stretches back long before the dramatic events of the 1989 Revolution. On the far side of the square stands the former Royal Palace, now home to the National Art Museum, the stunning Romanian Athenaeum and the historic Athenee Palace Hotel. At the south end of the square, you can visit the small, but beautiful, Kretzulescu Church." Source:  http://www.romaniatourism.com
