Timișoara is one of those cities that once you’ve visited, you’d like to see at least one more time. You may wonder why that’s happening. Let’s find out.
At a first thought, you might think that it’s because you could easilyfall in love with its parks of a surreal beauty, the scent of the ancient buildings, or its tumultuous, rich and always inspiring history, but this is not really true. Moreover, it’s not because of the many significant technological breakthroughs that have been made here, the quality of the universities, or the many fields this city has revolutionised.
The real reason is much simpler, and closer to us than one can imagine: people. No stereotypes, no humans acting like ants beneath a magnifying glass, no masses following some fleeing fashion or blindly following each other. There is uniqueness all around, with open minds and original, different people from all over the country and all over the world living together in one city in which a contagious young spirit seems to reside.
The streets of Timișoara are wrapped around the city centre in concentric circles, and, just like the core of a supernova waiting to explode from all the life boiling within, this is where everything happens: festivals, shows, the meeting place of lovers and the starting place of revolutions.
From there you can take a stroll down the Bega canal, of which still, silent waters just float away all worries in sight, check out the only theatre in Europe whose plays are acted in three languages, or visit the numerous landmarks we have in mind.
