You can call this an extension of The Classic Tour.
After visiting the old city center for 2.5 hours, we’ll visit the old neighborhoods of the city: Fabric, Elisabetin, and Iosefin.
Fabric (Germ. Fabrickstadt, Hun. Gyárkülváros) is the former industrial neighborhood of the city. Initially, there were manufacturers here; later, there was industry. This neighborhood was one of the first places in the world where the Industrial Revolution took place. The Fabric was also the best place for going out at the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century. We’ll also see here the synagogue, the Millennium Church, and the oldest beer factory in Romania.
Initially, a neighborhood for gardeners, Elisabetin (Germ. Elisabethstadt, Hun. Erzsébetváros) is today a neighborhood with beautiful houses, most of them built at the beginning of the 20th century. We can stop by Scârt Loc Lejer to have a drink or to visit the Museum of the Communist Consumer, a small private museum containing household items from the communist era.
Josefin (Germ. Josephstadt, Hun. Józsefkülváros) was one of the most important neighborhoods of the city. The train station, the port on the Bega River, and a big marketplace are here. Also, the wealthy people from the city used to have vacation houses here because this neighborhood was much greener. Many of the houses built here at the beginning of the 20th century are representative of the secession style – we’ll see some of them.
