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

Companion through 1000 years of history: the river Bega

Largely overlooked by tourists, the river Bega played an essential role from the very first moments of Timişoara's history – almost a millennium ago. At that time, the Bega was split into countless sidearms in this flat landscape. Together with the neighbouring river Timiş, these sidearms fuelled an extensive marsh. That marsh was so overwhelming, that even the Hungarians (which established the settlement) made a confusion and called it "the fortress on the Timiş" – Témesvár, that is. Which led to the Romanian name of "Timişoara", later on.

the past times of the Bega can still be read in the architecture of Timisoara Timisoara, art is happening on the street art collections, old or contemporary arts in Timisoara fancy street cafes, the city returning to European habits welcoming sweet break during the city tour
