A weekend in Timisoara : Romania

During my last month in Europe before moving to Asia, I was on a rush to try and taste as much as possible in Europe, and a quick Wizzair flight away from my base in the Netherlands was the Romanian Timisoara. So I spent a weekend there, exploring the streets of “Vienna of the East” and having all sorts of strange experiences with some of the local folks. From a Communist Museum bar, to a Shisha night with an Israeli arab, to pizza at 9am with a bored local, Romanian street movie with enthusiastic drunk locals, to a fantastic random Beethoven classical music concert I just happened to wonder into, and some rock concerts playing at the river near the hotel. That was plenty for a short weekend, and so even if the town center may seem small, it does seem like this town has a lot of potential.

 

To share with you some of my weekend there…
