Timisoara: Boat Rides, Walks and a Touch of Nostalgia

Timisoara: Boat Rides, Walks and a Touch of Nostalgia, Timisoara, Romania (B)

For those who have been following my travels in 2018, I was doing a 50 Days Road trip across 15 countries during the summer with Cez.

One of the pit stops along the trip was at this lovely little town of Timisoara in Romania. Unlike most tourists who usually visit Bucharest, the capital of Romania, I ended up roaming the streets of the pretty little town of Timișoara.

Like many other small untouched towns in the Balkans, Timisoara has a particular charm that was waiting to be discovered.

You can see that in the restored buildings all around the town. A part of the Banat region, the city has registered an important number of milestones over the years. It was the first city in the country of Romania to have electrical lit streets, the first electrical tramway and also houses the oldest beer factory in the country. 

After you depart from the capital city to Timișoara, you will notice in an instant that the rhythm of this town is a lot slower pace and more relaxed. People living here spend more time enjoying the little things/ hobbies that really bring joy. For example, a long relaxing walk through the streets, a stroll down the Bega, which is the river that crosses and cuts across the city, or a nice cup of coffee in one of the many hip cafes all around.  ......
