Timișoara is a historical romanian city located in Timiș County, western Romania. An interesting fact about this incredible city is that Timișoara is the first european city that was illuminated by electric light.
Piața Victoriei (Victoriei Square) is one of the most known tourist attractions in Timișoara. When you get here, you can visit Opera Națională (The Romanian National Opera) or Catedrala Mitropolitană din Timișoara (Timișoara Orthodox Cathedral) which is the highest church from Romania.
Domul romano-catolic (St. George’s Cathedral) is situated near Piața Unirii (Unirii Square) and it is one of the most interesting buildings in Timișoara due to its Baroque architecture.
Another tourist attraction is Piața Roșie (Red Square) which is situated between Victoriei Square and Unirii Square.
