Top 9 Things to do in Timisoara, Romania

November 8, 2017 Malia Yoakum

Charming Timisoara is often referred to as “Little Vienna,” and indeed, Austrian influences are evident in the architecture, food and culture. This is a walking city, divided into squares that showcase stunning architectural gems. Downtown is reserved for pedestrians only, and the best time to visit is at twilight, when you can sip a hot wine as you stroll amid sparkling lights.

Unirii Square

Reviewed By thferreira123 - Munich, Germany

Beautiful place to visit with family with colourful buildings. I visited with my 3 years old son the art museum (cost 10lei), the Cathedral and the Pinocchio Pizza. If you like historic Cathedral you will enjoy. You can not take photos inside any Cathedral or museum.
The Pinocchio pizza we ate a small pizza and was enough. The different and interesting about their pizza is that they put sesame seeds in the dough. So it has a interesting taste of seed. They also have crepes (with no seeds). It's a nice tiny place to eat with kids.

Timisoara Orthodox Cathedral

Reviewed By arronf78 - Plymouth, United Kingdom

Having visited the Cathedral in the evening to see it all lit up we couldn’t wait to visit the next morning.
Inside we were taken aback a bit as we stood by. Keeping our distance as a large number of worshipers carried out their practice. Which in itself is an experience. The cathedrals interior is breathtaking and is a must see for anyone travelling to this part of Romania. Although we felt a little uncomfortable to whip out the camera.

Piata Victoriei

This place doesn't look like much but should be included as part of a guided tour. It played interesting and tragic part with the 80s Revolution .

Roses Park

Reviewed By Alan J

The roses park is a pretty normal park with nothing amazing to visit, of course it's not bad , you can take some pretty nice pictures , but in the end it's just an average park.

Iulius Mall

Reviewed By Höpö L

You will find all you need and a bit extra. The mall is a bit awkward to access due to road work and lot of signs and inside the floor plan is close to a maze but positively for ones the escalators have been placed closer to each other allowing smooth exit. I would go again.

Bega River

Reviewed By Vladimir1998 - Rotterdam, The Netherlands

Now, the river/channel itself is not so great. Doesn't look amazing, not a lot of fish or nice plants, kinda dirty and small. But the way it is organised and taken care of is just great. You can walk all around the banks through many parks, there are a lot of restaurants and bars with great views and atmosphere and you can also rent pedalos and kayaks to explore the river yourself.
These are all relaxing activities great for a summer evening or so!

Muzeul de Arta

Reviewed By Em L

Muzeul de Arta is housed in one of the beautiful buildings in the aesthetically impressive Unirii Square. It is just 10 lei to enter (about £2) and well worth it for the hour or so that you will spend in there.
Unless you're familiar with Romanian art, you probably won't have come across many of the pieces kept here but it is nice to see the different works produced by Romanian artists over a number of periods. The staff on hand were more than happy to discuss pieces with you and offer their own thoughts, opinions and interpretations, even when communicating with people who can only speak English.
As well as the art work, the building itself is impressive and well preserved.
The only disappointing part that was when I visited, the gift shop was closed and I really wanted to spend my money in there!

Bruck House

Reviewed By ZenHealer7 - Asheville, North Carolina

This average looking house is on the attractions list only because Timisoara is so bereft of sights and attractions.
