The square is a very nice place for meeting with friends or searching for something traditional to eat if there is Christmas time and there are plenty of small places that provide food. Some buildings need renovation, but the atmosphere is really great!

There was a Christmas market so it was quite good to visit it at this time. Was better looking at the evening time because of lightning. Although was good that there were several musicians.

This is a lovely square with some pretty buildings, cafes and restaurants. It was also the sight of protests during the 1989 uprising. A monument stands at the top of the square paying tribute to those who died during the uprising.

Nice architecture but in an extremely poor condition! Dirty, holes in the pavements, commercial spaces badly maintained and assigned mostly to kitch commerce.... Even the fountain in the middle would highly need reconditioning and proper cleaning. Also a smaller fountain is full hof dirt and...More

The strict City Centre of the Timisoara, full of people and restaurants, if you are in the City this is a must have. All the bigger attractions are located within the walking area. It has very specific climate.

One of the first places to visit in Timișoara is Piața Victoriei, a great place to take a walk or enjoy a coffee at one of the chic coffee shops.

Before there was a passage of undertraversing the road and a tram line. By the 80s the tram passed through Victory Square. Later there were shops that are no longer working

Advise on how to buy RATB bus ticket if I arrive very late? (2 Replies)
Hi, I plan to visit Bucharest on my last leg of a trip. As it stands, I will probably arrive Gara de Nord around 11pm, and I do plan to catch a morning flight the next day. I plan to take a taxi from Gara de Nord to Piata Victoriei, and then take bus 783 around midnight and head to an airport hotel. I am aware that there is an RATB ticket booth in front of Gara de Nord. However, I am concerned that the ticket booth may be closed by the time I arrive the train station. Can anyone let me know...More

It's unlikely there will be ticket inspectors that late. In principle you could pay via SMS (send text E783 to number 7458), altough the system may be off. SIM cards can be bought at the train station at any hour. Ticket booths close around 20:30. There was one at Unirii square with longer hours but it's too far for you. Legitimate taxis work on the meter but in NO CASE should you take taxis from Gara de Nord's exits, most likely you won't be able to tell apart the rip off ones. Also,...More

There is no 5 lei ticket. You need to get a Multiplu or Activ card then top it up with at least two express bus rides. The Multiplu card is 1.6 lei, the Activ card is 3.7 lei, the two express bus rides are 7 lei. You have to validate the card right after getting into a bus (hold it against the black spot on any of the orange validating devices until it beeps). For your metro trips buy a two rides card (5 lei), you can use one ride for the first day and the other ride for the second day....More
