Romania is one of the most beautiful countries of Eastern Europe. The beautiful landscapes of Romania are equally distributed between mountainous, hills and plain. Besides the Carpathian Mountains, an important attraction is the Danube. This is a natural border line with Serbia and Bulgaria; it flows into the Black Sea forming the Danube Delta, the second largest and the best preserved delta in Europe.

Timisoara was first mentioned as a place in either 1212 or 1266. Timişoara grew considerably during the reign of Charles I, who, upon his visit here in 1307, ordered the construction of a royal palace. Timişoara's importance also grew thanks to its strategic location, which facilitated control over the Banat plain. Over the years, Timisoara, the largest city in western Romania has been influenced by many cultures. The charm of this city, settled on the northern bank of the Bega River, lies in its distinct architectural character and vibrant cultural life. Frequently referred to as "Little Vienna," Timisoara is home to year-round musical and theatrical performances, art galleries, museums and a buzzing nightlife.

It was the first mainland European city to be lit by electric  street lamps in 1884. It was also the second European and the first city in what is now Romania with horse drawn trams in 1867.
