This is one of Oradeas centeral and most crowded streets. The street is built like a long plaza and there are only a few streets that crossing it and have movement of vehicels, because of that the boulevard is suited for walking and look around at its beautiful architecture. The Blv has neoclassic- Renaissance style pretty colored buildings that gives it a great atmosphere.
In this street there are good shops of clothes (Nike, Adidas etc...), books, electronics and much more funny stuff... there are also a lot of banks, restaurants and charming small cafees that you should visit if you are there...
If you get a bit tired you can sit down on a bench and see the beauty of the buildings in the surroundings... a few of the citiies most pleasnat buildings are here...
I also loved watching the girls there because the boulevard is full with young pretty girls... :))

Or the "Fekete Sas" in Hungarian, or "Vulturul Negru" in Romanian... you decide how to call Oradeas most famous, impressive and beautiful building...
This was one of the most importent projects of the architects Komor Marcell & Jakab Deszo, it was built between 1907-1909 in secession style.
Today the structure includes some shops, bars and restaurants, there is also a cinema and a hotel in funny prices. The interior is covered by a beautiful colored glass which gives the place a special feeling. Each entrance dominated by an eagle, the symbol of the building.
