Timisoara is situated in the western corner of Romania, where three countries (Romania, Hungary and Serbia) and several cultures, nationalities, languages and customs converge. Timisoara is the place where the 1989 Revolution started in 17 December 1989.
It is at the heart of the Banat region and is also part of Transylvania. Banat is famous for its beauty, wealth, agriculture and hospitable people. Nearby is the famous Recas Wineyard, with a growing worldwide recognition for the quality of its wines.
Timisoara means not only economic activity but also social and cultural life. The past and the present meet in this 700 year old, but very European city.
A medieval citadel, baroque monuments and attractive modern buildings complete a wonderful panorama. Numerous parks and the river Bega with its romantic bridges are just some of the features of this city.
