ROMANIA – Situated on the plain near the borders with Hungary and Serbia, Timișoara – where I arrived at by plane and spent two nights at the start of my week in Romania – is a university town of 320,000. It is called Temesvar in Hungarian, Timisvar in Serbian, and something similar in various other languages. 2017-07-16. Click on the image below to view this post as a full-screen slideshow.
Despite being quite a big city, the center, which is centered on three squares, is quite small:
Romania has changed quite a lot since I was last there. For one thing, it now has an increasing amount of bicycle infrastructure, which in some places is better than in Belgium (where I lived at the time). So I rented a bike and started by following the river Bega out of town to the east.
Stay tuned for the other Romanian towns I visited, each one very special in its own way. The next one is Sibiu, a medieval Saxon town in Transylvania.This entry was posted in Romania, Timiș County, Timișoara
