Timisoara full life concentrated in this place. A place to remember the past and a bridge to the future.

It is easy to see why this area was once known as the Paris of Eastern Europe. The atmosphere is delightful and fields restaurants and shops for every budget and appetite. Evenings are often cool, but crowded as hundreds turn out for their evening stroll.

Timisoara seemed a nice town, but a bit overrated if were to take into consideration some of the reviews. The Operei Square, though it has history, and none one can retract what happened there more than 20 years ago during the Romanian Revolution against the Ceausescu dictatorship, has nothing that comes out of the bloom. Or does it? Maybe during... More

If you go to Timisoara you can't miss the Opera Square. It's called this way because, of course, the Opera House and the National Theatre are placed there. In the Opera's balcony is where the Romanian revolution form December 1989 made its voice heard all over the country sending to everyone the signal that Timisoara was the first free city... More

Excellent square, on one side the Opera house and on the other the Orthodox Cathedral. Great place to take a stroll and if you were there in July, there was a Jazz Festival going on, which I dont know if it is hosted there every year, but sure was fun.

The name of this square is spelled wrong. It is Piata Operei. Opera square. I cannot submit this unless it is 100 characters long so there you have it. I also could not correct or report the attraction's name.

This place si very special for the people of Timisoara, it represents the place where they gained their freedom from comunism and the starting point of the Romanian '89 Revolution. It is one of the most beautiful places in Romania. You can enjoy your coffee, or have a great lunch at the restaurants there. Many other events take place here.

If you come to Timisoara,here is where you want to come,as it's the city's main square with restaurants,shops,banks and a nice architecture. Beside being the scene of the 1989 Romanian Revolution,it's a unique architectural site in Romania.People come at lunch,in the evenings and in the week-ends to walk by.Ask the locals where to find the "pleshkavitsa",the serbian origin pie.It's fresh,home...
