Timisoara – the 1989 Revolution Tour


Timisoara – The 1989 Revolution Tour

Timisoara Revolution Tour is a program which combines a walking tour on the “hot spots” of the revolution with a visit in a museum dedicated to this event.

  • The starting point of the tour is Timotei Cipariu Street, the place where on the 16th of December 1989, the sparkle of the revolution was lit.
  • The tour continues in the city center. We see the places where the revolutionaries gathered, where the people died, the buildings with bullets marks, the “balcony of the revolution” – the place where from Timisoara was proclaimed the first city in Romania free of communism.
  • The final point of the tour is the Memorial of the 1989 Revolution. This Memorial is dedicated to only 7 days of history. 7 days who changed allot the life of an entire country. Here we can see the halls dedicate to the events in 1989, the ecumenical chapel and we can watch a documentary about the revolution. With a little luck we can meet Mr. Orban, the manager of the Memorial, one of the revolutionaries wounded in Timisoara.
  • A tour about the recent history, dedicated to the people who dared to raise against a dictator.
