Timişoara is a university city and industrial center in western Romania. It is often described as the most cosmopolitan city in Romania.
Timisoara is also known as the city of roses and parks, and has a very green face, especially in spring, when tulips abound. Some call it little Vienna, because of similar architecture and the number of museums.
The city is served by Romania's third-largest airport, Traian Vuia International Airport, located 10km away from the city center. It was the hub of Romania's second-largest airline, Carpatair As of May 2014, after bankruptcy, Carpatair no longer operates in Romania or Moldova. There are still flights from/to major European and one domestic destinations:
TAROM has daily flights to Bucharest.
Lufthansa has daily flights to Munich.
Wizz Air has flights to Barcelona, Bergamo, Brussels Charleroi, Dortmund, Eindhoven, Forli, Frankfurt Hahn, London Luton, Madrid, Memmingen (Munich West), Paris Beauvais, Rome Fiumincio, Treviso and Valencia.
Belgrade (Serbia) is 150 km away ( a 2 1/2 hour drive).
Budapest (Hungary) is 286 km away ( a 3.5 hour drive).
The bus terminal (Autogara) lies two hundred meters to the south of the North Railway Station (Gara de Nord).
There was mention here before of buses to Vršac, just over the border with Serbia, but at time of writing (April 2015), no buses were running.
Probably the best way to see the city is by taking a free tour of the city. Understanding that it's better to bring as many tourists as possible and not to charge them for everything, locals offer free city tours, mostly for English speakers but also for German/Hungarian speakers. A simple search on Google will find such free city tours.
