It looks like it will be a magnificent square, once finished - but this will take a while! They started renovations in 2009, and about 50% of the buildings have been renovated, but the square is totally dug up. It is scheduled for "opening" in 2016 or 2017 - but at this rate, I doubt it. Museum of Art is... More

Full of history and just beautiful !!!! Walking distance to downtown (Piata Operei), don't miss it. Nice restaurants in the area, too.

I was in Timisoara 2 times and every time I spent a lot in Unirii Square. I liked from the first time the architecture, the open space and the mixture of people that you can meet there.

Is one of the most beautiful places in Timisoara, but now everything is under constructions and rehabilitation, but even so is worth visiting, the buildings are very old build in Austro-Hungarian empire times. Also the Catholic Dom is very beautiful and recent rehabilitated. Enjoy the city!

It was a giant hole as construction crews were slacking off in the general area. It was even hard to get around, though it had a decent arts museum.

A unique, beautiful place. My favourite place in Timisoara, surrounded by cafes and restaurants, very artsy and trendy at the same time.

This is my favorite evening spot in Timisoara. This square sports some of the most lovely residential and shopping fronts in Europe. A central fountain sandwiched between turn of the century churches and buildings creates the perfect atmosphere for outdoor cafe's and diners. DIning palettes range from local cuisine to the finest "french" to the pubs of Ireland. WHen the... More

The whole square is under construction, you can barely walk along the building walls. It's a disaster !
