Since the Cardinal points and the Maria Theresa Bastion are pretty close to the Union square, one day I have decided to capture some photos of those two places. Unfortunately that day the weather was a little bit ugly but I have managed to capture some shots of the Maria Theresa Bastion and the Cardinal points without getting wet.
The Cardinal points in Timisoara
As you can see the Cardinal points is a very busy intersection in Timisoara especially around 5 PM. Unfortunately the fountain was turned off that day. Probably the shot would have looked even better if the fountain was turned on.
Small tunnels and a Mercedes for sale
I found this brand new Mercedes for sale in the area which is called the Bastion. I believe that Mercedes is a brand new 2016 Mercedes GLE. Those tunnels were a part of Timisoara’s fortification. In our days if you want to reach the Cardinal points or other parts of the city by car, then you should go under them.
Three flats near the Bastion
I’ve shot this photo because I found it interesting how those tall flats were looking in the shot.
Another shot of the Bastion
As you can see this place was recently rehabilitated and I must admit that is looking pretty amazing and modern. Also as far as I know, if you plan to eat or drink something, the you can find some restaurants in the area.
Piata Unirii or Unirii square is a popular square located not far from the city center. There you can find many important touristic objectives like the Catholic Dome, the Serbian Orthodox church and the Baroque palace. The majority of the historical buildings were rehabilitated and I have to admit that the place is looking very nice. Also you can find many restaurants, bars and terraces especially in the summer. The prices are a little bit higher then in other parts of the city but not to exaggerated.
The Catholic Dome and the Trinity Monument
The Dome was finished in 1774 after almost 38 years of constructions. The Dome is that yellow church from the photo below. The building has cross shape. The Trinity monument is located in the right side of the photo.
The Serbian Orthodox church
The Serbian Orthodox church was built between 1745 and 1748 and before this church, there was an wooden church.
The Baroque Palace
The Baroque Palace was built in 1754 and its one of the most important historical monuments in Timisoara. Today you can find the art gallery inside the building. If you like to admire some amazing paintings then there is the right place for you.
Other old buildings
Here are some old buildings located in the Unirii square. These buildings are called in Romanian Casa “Brück”, Casa La “Trei Husari” and Casa “La Elefantul”.
