(Piata Unirii, Timisoara)


Romania is fast emerging as a must-visit destination and nowhere is on the up more than the ridiculously pretty Timisoara.

Stay: in the ultra-modern Hotel Del Corso, just five minutes from the city centre.

Eat: at In Thyme in Timisoara’s Piata Unirii, famous for its Baroque architecture.

See: A walk along the River Bega, which connects many of Timisoara’s beautiful parks, and don’t miss the umbrellas covering Strada Alba Iulia.
