    Stop At: Timisoara Historical Center, Timisoara 300003 Romania
    Visit Timisoara city with its complex history and throughout history, various nationalities have shared the city. The city has been part of the Kingdon of Hungary, under the Ottoman rule and for a long period of time, Timisoara was part of the Austro-Hungarian empire. In 1918 Timisoara, the population consisted of Germans, Hungarians, Romanians, and Serbians. Capital of the region of Banat, it has made giant strides forward. “Little Vienna” or “the city of flowers and parks” are two names for Timisoara that reflect two important aspects of the city: the architecture is very similar to Vienna and the numerous parks give the urban centre a pleasant, welcoming character.
    Moreover, Timisoara which is one of the largest cites in Romania, will become a European Capital of Culture in 2021, which means this diversity will be celebrated further.
    Timisoara can boast the largest centre of historic buildings in Romania. Because of the long Hapsburg nomination, but also thanks to its proximity to western Europe, it is also the most cosmopolitan city in Romania and an excellent example of cohabitation between peoples. It features Orthodox and Catholic churches and cathedrals, and restaurants and bars in which Romanian, Hungarian, German, Serbian and Italian are spoken. Over the last few years, thanks an excellent local policy, the city has attracted thousands for foreign business people, mostly Italians. The presence of many universities, theatres and museums give the city a vibrant cultural life.
    Freedom Square (Piata Libertatii) is considered the heart of the city, the topographical centre. It is located at the crossroads of several old roads which preserve visible traces of the past, but are also the heart of the city’s night life. Union Square (Piata Unirii) is one on the most beautiful in Romania. It is entirely pedestrianised and features a large park surrounded by beautiful brightly coloured buildings in Baroque style with decorative elements around the cornices, windows and doors.

    Also known as The Hunyad Castle, it is thought to be the place where Vlad Tepes was imprisoned before his depose in 1462. According to this belief, he was held hostage for seven years by John Hunyadi, Hungary's then regent and military leader.
    The castle is located near the cities of Deva and Hunedoara, within the historic region of Transylvania, in its south western side, belonging to the county of Hunedoara. Its foundation was laid out by John Hunyadi (Iancu de Hunedoara) in a Gothic architectural style which encompasses Renaissance elements. It is viewed as the most imposing and resplendent castle in Transylvania. John Hunyadi reinforced the monument to make it safer and stronger in the event of an attack or battle, however he also transformed it visually, modifying the decorative elements of the halls and guest rooms and the towers. The castle features towers which are tall and mighty, ideal for defensive tactics and strategies, inner yards and a drawbridge. The wall is double to prevent any possible damage during or in the event of an attack. Corvin's Castle is an impressive tourist attraction, abundant in historic relevance and architectural pulchritude and it would be a pity to visit its sites and not delve into its mysteries, legends and offerings. Visit each room of the castle and analyse the outer and inner decorative elements and fortifications. A stunning castle of Transylvania and the most amazing Gothic-style castle of Romania.
