Two charming cities and green adventures
- Transport: Wizz Air
- Departure from: Airport Ben Gurion Tel Aviv ( TLV)
On Tuesday morning you’ll be boarding in Tel Aviv Airport, and after 3 hours flight + 1 hour refresh we’ll start exploring Timisoara from its beginnings in the 13th century. You’ll hear stories about a Turkish city, continuing with the Austrian Maria Theresa Fortress, dating back from the early 18th century, the most modern defensive structures for those years, up until today, the bullet holes that witness the Anticommunist Revolution from 1989.
On our way, we’ll cross Piata Unirii (Union Square), the old city, with beautiful churches and palaces, laid-back cafes and a bourgeois atmosphere, hence the name Little Vienna. We will see the footprints of the Jewish people everywhere: synagogues, palaces, stories, culture. Last stop is Piata Victoriei (Victory Square), with the iconic Opera House, vivid flower gardens and the Orthodox-Christian Cathedral.
Wednesday starts early, as we have the difficult task to get to know Oradea in barely one day. Administered since year 1113 by Hungary, the Ottoman Empire, the Habsburg Monarchy and Romania, you’ll admire what the last two centuries brought in terms of architecture and heritage: from Secession with its richly decorated and colorful to Baroque and Art Nouveau buildings.
Jews were an important part of the city, forming one of the oldest Jewish communities in the region. Out of the 27 synagogues in 1940, 4 are still standing. We’ll visit the recently renovated Zion Synagogue, a grandiose temple built in 1878.
In the afternoon, we’ll go to the famous thermal resort Baile Felix (20 minutes by bus) to relax before our trip back to Timisoara.
Thursday morning is by-choice – relaxing or shopping in Iulius Town.
Be ready for fun in the afternoon, as we’ll go by bus (30 min) to Herneacova, a riding center and adventure park. Dinner will be served in their restaurant having local flavors to spoil you.
On Friday, after a 2 hours ride, we start a day full of adventures at Arsenal Park Orastie. Don’t forget your swimsuit! We’ll have many options there: zipline, archery tag, escape room, minigolf, treasure hunt, airsoft, paintball, football, tennis or aqua-park. We’ll need a good lunch for energy and have fun until late afternoon, probably sleeping on our way back to Timisoara.
On Saturday take-away breakfast will wait for you, as the flight back home departs early. You will land at Ben Gurion at 9:20 thinking that on your next journey you will see all of Transylvania.
