Unirii Square, Timisoara

4.5
Must see · Landmark · Tourist Spot
Named for the sight of the Roman Catholic and the Serbian Orthodox temples facing each other, Unirii Square reflects the city's tolerant spirit. In the past, the square hosted religious ceremonies and military parades; today it serves as a stage for cultural events. The area's most notable buildings include the palace of the former prefecture, the bishop's residence executed in the "national Serbian" style, and the Viennese Baroque palace that houses an art collection. Notice the Baroque Statue of the Trinity, depicting the plague, famine, and war, in the middle of the square. The square also features an 18th-century fountain that once supplied the city with drinking water. With our online itinerary creator, Timisoara attractions like Unirii Square can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.
