My Favorite City

Timisoara is located in western part of Romania that called Banat region. In this city there are Romanians, Hungarians, Serbians and more.
The city is one of the most cleanest and nicest in the country. It is one of the biggest too, popolution of almost 350,000 people and there are also a lot of students in the city. The city is full of parks and gardens... i saw a lot that were located in the way of gara de nord that is the cities main railway station (there is another 3) to the city center.
The city as a lot of atracctions like the Unirii square, the Liberty square and the Victory square. There are plenty of accomodation options for any kind of service... from 1 star to 4.
You can do in the city shopping too because there are pretty good shops especially in city Center.
Timisoara is famous about the Revulotion in 1989 that started in the city and you can see in the city some memorials to the victims. The ways to get to the city is or by car; a lot of International roads are getting to Timisoara, you can get also by train, the city has a pretty big and not the most clean and beautiful station in the region but there are a lot of trains that getting there, also International trains and also Nationals.in Timisoara not like other cities in romania there is almost no gypcies that can butter you. These are the basic things about Timisoara but there is a lot more.

Timisoaras Architecture - The Little Vienna

Timisoara has an amazing Architecture. The city Center, especially the victory square as a lot of huge old building that remainds me of Vienna in some way. There is the Metropolin church, the Opera, some hotels and a lot of interesting buildings. there Square is also very big, with parks, fountains, shops and a lot of tourists. There is in Timisoara other kind of architecture too... like the pretty old buliding (but renovated) in Unirii square... there are also some new banks, hotels and office buildings that also look very good in the cities skyline.

    The good thing about this Mc Donalds is that one can sit and eat or drink something at reasonable prices in its outside premises while enjoying great views of piazza Victoriei including the cathedral. No need to pay premium prices for the location.

    The only good thing @ McDonalds : if you order an Espresso, you get a really good coffee. There are better fast-foods in Timisoara, some of them serving Serbian or Romanian fast food, which taste a lot better.

    actually you misspelled the name, is the Mitropolitan Cathedral not "Metropolin". For your knowledge...
