timisoara in 100 pictures part 2 is the second half of the best pictures i took during my recent city break.
this post is very bega-heavy, bega being the river that runs through timisoara. i walked along it for a few kilometers and a few hours, on both days. i loved it. every place is better if there’s nature nearby. i first went along the increasingly decrepit-looking the nicer along the bega liked both just as much.
this is the iosefin church.
this is where i’m back downtown and i started walking along the bega in the opposite direction.
there were several kayak and canoe centers along the river. and a few rowers in the water, in spite of the rainy weather.
this is the children’s park. i liked it: it had so many cool things.
i passed by the carmen sylva high school.
here i am in another park called parcul civic.
here i am downtown again. i was planning to take the tram on the second day, go until the end of the line and then walk back. but i ended up working instead, yey…
a huge mural made for the plai fest.
and this is the piata victoriei under the siege of thousands of crowing crows. i loved it!
we had dinner at locanda del corso. the armosphere was nice, the italian food was ok.
this was our airbnb: blinding white, super clean, pretty perfect.
this was my first time ever in timisoara. yes, i had been in sapporo twice and never in timisoara. i know, it’s random.
i enjoyed discovering the city even if the weather was bad and there was absolutely no sun. the city has been recently selected to the cultural capital in 2021 so you could put it on your list. maybe i’ll go back too. in a sunnier time, because i saw plenty of terraces i could lounge on along the river.
