30 pictures to make you fall for Oradea

Oradea is one of the most photogenic and wonderful tourist destinations in Romania. Runner-up in the final for Best European Destination, beautiful Oradea is truly charming.

If I had to present the city’s attractions, I wouldn’t hesitate. So, here you have some hints:

Take a stroll downtown to admire the numerous palaces. Look up! Admire the different colours and motifs that are a celebration of Art Nouveau/Secession. Oradea is Romania’s Art Nouveau capital after it became member of an important network highlighting this artistic trend. For more info on the Art Nouveau Museum, read here.

The city has always nested a perfect symbiosis between Romanians and Hungarians throughout times. It is a symbol of harmony.

It is also a landmark of peace and quiet.

In recent years, the cultural and artistic life has just explored.

The city boasts a very good geographic position, both bordering Hungary and being open to the west, but also being a gate to Transylvania.

Last but not least, the surroundings of the city are worthy to explore.

Consider Oradea in itself as a major gem before it gets assaulted by hordes of tourists!
