Piata Victoriei

Nestled between the striking façades of Timisoara’s opera house and main cathedral, this historic square is a popular haunt for coffee lovers and romantics.

Journey to the heart of gorgeous Timisoara to find Piata Victoriei (Victory Square), the city’s picturesque main plaza. Also known as Opera Square, this central locale features quaint coffee houses, shopping streets and exquisite architecture.

Victory Square has long been a meeting place for locals and artisans. Take a guided tour and learn about the origins of the square’s name, which refers to the successful revolt against Romanian Communism in 1989.

Admire the square’s beauty as you stroll along its wide paths. In the center of the square is an exquisite flower display and a picturesque fountain. Photograph the scenery, which is framed by beautiful examples of 1920s architecture in the surrounding façades.

At one end of the plaza, the Timisoara Orthodox Cathedral towers into the sky. Inspect the cathedral's enchanting neo-Moldavian façade, which is enriched by distinct overtones of Byzantine architecture. Admire its horizontal brickwork, intricate eaves and green mosaic spires, which are gloriously lit up at night.

In front of the cathedral, spend a moment at a monument that memorializes revolutionaries who perished in 1989. Learn more about the events of this tumultuous era at the Memorial Museum of the 1989 Revolution. Opposite the cathedral is the Timisoara Opera House, an impressive sight.

After exploring, relax with a refreshing drink at a terrace café along the plaza boundary. Join crowds browsing a range of brand-name shops in the streets around the square, before returning at night to enjoy a restaurant meal or a drink at a bar. The buzzing crowds and gorgeous nighttime scenery make this a perfect area for an evening stroll.

Victory Square is located in Timisoara’s compact center and can be easily accessed on foot from most of the city’s major attractions. Alternatively, get here by trolleybus, tram or taxi. Victory Square’s nearby attractions include the Habsburg-era Union Square and the Cinema Capitol.
