Timisoara Classic Tour is a relaxed walking tour in the city center. History, beautiful buildings, the stories of the city and their people.
The tour takes place inside of the old city walls of the Vauban type fortress, built in the 18th century by the Austro-Hungarians.
The starting point is the oldest building in the city – the castle built by the Hungarian king Carol Robert of Anjou, at the begging of the 14th century.
The tour follows a chronological path – the history and the stories of the city go along with the places we are seeing. Our tour follows an 800 years history on a track of about 2,5 km. We start with the Hungarian period, then the Turkish one followed by the Habsburg period – the glory years of the city, and we finish in the present time, in the square where the revolution against communist regime took place in December 1989.
