Amazing buildings and big square

We visited the square in winter but I can easily see that this square must be very popular in the summer. With its nice big grassed area in the middle and a lot of the buildings... read more

We visited the square in winter but I can easily see that this square must be very popular in the summer. With its nice big grassed area in the middle and a lot of the buildings around the square have been renovated and repaired to their former beauty it was so nice just walking around and looking at the details...

It is a very open space with amazing buildings, but they are in the most awfull state. Too bad that the city hall doesn't have the finances to reabilitate them, or they simply don't want to. Leaving that asside, you really feel that you are in Vienna with the baroque style buildings, small streets and full of caffee's and restaurants... More

This square has an unique architecture, being in the middle of this square you will find yourself in XIXth century, it is ideal for walkings. It is a point of meeting West and East as there are two Churches one Orthodox, Serbian and a Catholic church.

This square is the oldest in Timisoara (yr 1700) and is designed in Baroque style. The buildings surrounding the square are very beautiful, although not all of them are completely renovated yet. The thing that I like the most is the fact that in the square you can find a Catholic Dome, an Orthodox parochial and the Serbian Orthodox church... More

Rarely beautiful. I love European cities during the winter, and christmas holidays. But don't we all? I've seen many places, Timisoara was personally very important and emotional trip for me, but objectively, it is a place everyone should see. Besides everything this city has, it's squares are very beautiful and very important. They represent freedom. In every corner of them,... More

If you are visiting Timisoara you cannot bypass Piata Unirii. All the palace surrounding this square , are awesome. Bruk Palace, Catholic cathedral, Art Museum etc. Since 2014 , city hall, id refurbishing this square, as the major part of Timisoara downtown. At the end of this works, Timisoara downtown should be a nice living room!

Much of the old town around Victory Square (Piata Victoriei) and Unirii Square is under construction at the present. I suggest waiting at least til next year before visiting. Fortunately we were only stopping for a few hours and did not have a hotel reservation.
