Romania Things to Do: 411 reviews and 851 photos
Oradea is the most important community in Northwestern Romania. It originates from the Sciths and Decanis and then the Slaves also settled here. The feudal town started to develop around an 11th century fortress (which was built, according to the legend, by King Ladislau), which was subsequently destroyed and replaced by a 15th century fortress, under the rule of Matyas Corvin. Among the tourist attractions, we can list:
-The City Hall building, raised in 1902-1903 in neoclassical style
-St. Ladislau Church (1723-1733)
-The Library Palace (1905, in a mixed style, with baroque, Renaissance and rococo elements)
-The Moon Church (1784, in a transition style from baroque to neoclassical)
-The Bishops? Palace (1762-1777, imitating Belveder Palace in Vienna)
-The Roman-Catholic Cathedral (1752-1780, inspired by the baroque buildings of Northern Italy)
Oradea benefits from a wide accessibility on a major international railway and many roads, as well as thanks to the local airport. There are 1-3* hotels in the city and the service quality is very good
