The Memorial Museum of the 1989 Revolution offers a full insight into the revolution in Timisoara (see museum details).Across the town centre is the picturesque Habsburg-era Piata Unirii, so-named for the imposing sight of the Romano-Catholic and Serbian Orthodox Cathedrals facing each other. During the 18th century, this was the city's commercial centre and the venue for numerous military processions and religious ceremonies.At this time, a seven-star- shaped bastion and gate-towers were constructed and the marshes surrounding the town were drained by the new Habsburg governor, General Mercy. South and east of the Bega Canal are the Josefin, Elisabetin and Fabric residential districts, true gems of Jugendstil, or art nouveau, architecture, built mainly in the late 19th century. Couple of miles east, climb up to the ruins of the Colti fortress* in Suseni.The small residential square of Piata Plevnei, south of the Bega Canal, is bordered by excellent examples of the first phase of Secessionist architecture, such as Gemeinhardt's Peacock House built in 1905. The Castle was first mentioned in the 14th century as belonging to the Cindea family.A progressive, cosmopolitan place, Timisoara was the first city in Europe and second in the world after New York, to use electricity to illuminate its public streets.
The impressive 18th century Baroque Palace dominates the square's south side.

Secessionism developed in two distinct architectural phases here.Facades are covered with an abundance of typical motifs: peacocks, swans, owls and squirrels together with sinuous vines and foliage. From up here enjoy a spectacular view over the rugged peaks and ridges of the nearby Retezat Mountains.The theme continues on the buildings lining Splaiul Tudor Vladimirescu, following the south bank of the Bega, and to a lesser extent, around nearby Piata Maria and Bulevardul 16 Decembrie 1989.
