The most impressive architecture in Timisoara

'Little Vienna' was Timisoara's name, and you won't wonder why. Art gallery, several outdoor patios, and two cathedrals.

Union Square is the oldest one of the 3 main squares in Timişoara. Along history, the square was called Hauptplatz, Domplatz or Losonczy Square. This square is hosting major landmarks in Timişoara (St. George's Cathedral, Brück House, House with Lions, Statue of the Holy Trinity, Baroque Palace...) making the perfect place for history lovers.

Anyone into architecture will appreciate the architectural variety (although not complex) of landscape architecture and the facade of buildings. Visually appealing and has many place to sit and contemplate.

The square was recently renovated and offer a very beautiful over view. You enter in the catholic church's from both side of the square. Many coffee-shops and terraces.

The baroque Piața Unirii (Union Square) is probably the one site in Timisoara not to be missed. In the middle is the Sacred trinity statue and around the square are the Museum of Arts, the George's catholic cathedral, the Serbian orthodox cathedral and episcopal palace, the German Lenau Primary school and further ancient buildings. Recently - nearly fully - renovated.... More

Unirii Square area (Union Square) is where you have the highest density of coffee shops, clubs, restaurants etc in Timisoara. In particular, the square is an open space surrounded by historical buildings, best to visit in Summer so you can enjoy the atmosphere, both by night and day.

It's like an oasis in the middle of the city - surrounded by fantastic architecture. Reminded me of St Marks square with some of the cafes and outdoor seating.
