City tours of Timişoara

guided walking tours
through a historic urban landscape

The main city of the Banat region is an intriguing mixture of old architecture and fast-modernising city life. Timişoara played a role in many European events, from the time of the Ottoman conquest, through the reign of Maria Theresia and up to the Romanian Revolution in December 1989, which started here and led to the fall of the communist dictator Nicolae Ceauşescu. Within our guided city tours you will discover tons of top-notch Art Nouveau, captivating history and a young, friendly atmosphere.

The city tours of Timişoara are ideal for:

  • business or professional travellers: from delegations / teams visiting a company in Timişoara, to people attending conferences or other events (we highly advice including a city tour into the event schedule!)
  • leisure travellers: included within round trips, or for city breaks
  • ... both categories as individuals or groups

city tour of Timisoara: discover the Baroque of Timisoara's Habsburg past previous picture next picture

Salzburg? Linz? No, Timişoara!

For two hundred years, the Habsburgs called Timişoara "home". Actually, they called it "Temeswar". They built here one of their largest (post-)Vauban-type fortresses, to keep the Turks away. Or the Hungarian revolutionaries of 1848, whatever... And inside the fortress was the "Inner City", well preserved up to date. The central point of the Inner City was the square above: the nowadays Union Square. Till 1918 it was "Domplatz, Timişoara's Baroque treasure chamber". Everything here speaks about cultural and ethnic mélange; the Serbian-Orthodox church standing vis-à-vis (not in the picture) also has baroque features, and a stunning Biedermeier interior.
