FOREWORD<br />

<strong>Timisoara</strong> is pleased to now more than ever, about one of his nickname<br />

- "City of Roses and parks."<br />

As an emerging and thriving economic center, <strong>Timisoara</strong> recognized<br />

early that a city needs a green oasis. It has already been forseen at that<br />

time that a city must not only score points by means of growing<br />

industry and trade, but also by its beauty. And what makes a city more<br />

beautiful and colorful than parks and flower gardens. The first park of<br />

the city was established in 1862, in the years after, more parks were<br />

established. The polulation liked the so called "Green Forest" (Padurea<br />

Verde) wich goes back to 1732. Since 1955 the park is used by many<br />

of the inhabitants a place of rest and relaxation (737 acres).<br />

the park on the occasion of a visit to<br />

<strong>Timisoara</strong>. In the park there is the<br />

largest open-air stage, a great venue for<br />

summer festivals and concerts.<br />

The preference of <strong>Timisoara</strong>'s residents for roses and parks is not new.<br />

This love is gradually grown as the city developed into a modern city. In<br />

<strong>Timisoara</strong> constantly roses and many other kinds of flowers were<br />

planted, parks and green ways were created, so that the city can<br />

proudly wear the nickname - City of Roses and parks.<br />

Today, the "Central" Park (1870), the People's Park (1862) with the<br />

former Apollo Cinema, the Botanic Park, the Cathedral Park and of<br />

course the Rose Park (Parcul Rozelor), are among the most liked parks<br />

in <strong>Timisoara</strong>.<br />

The Rose Park is one of the landmarks of the city and is a popular<br />

resort with locals. The Austrian Emperor Franz Josef already praised<br />

THE VILLAGE MUSEUM<br />

The Banat Village Museum is Romania's only ethnographic exhibition,<br />

which displays all elements of a village, such as town hall, church,<br />

school, community center and guest house.<br />

The area covers 17 acres. Shown are 52 houses and farms and an impressive<br />

collection of typical everyday objects such as furniture,<br />

clothes, fabrics, carpets, appliances, tools and manual work.<br />

The initiative for the establishment of the impressive and expansive museum<br />

goes back to the art historian and church restorer Ioachim Miloia.<br />

In the courtyard of the Banat Museum he started in 1928 to build up<br />

the first churches, farmhouses and wooden crosses. The museum was<br />

opened in 1971 at its current location, the "Hunting Forest".<br />

As part of the modernization of the Village Museum, the lighting and<br />

the walkways were started to be renewed in 2012. The open-air stage,<br />

on which always on Sundays in the summer folklore and dance events<br />

take place, will also be modernized.<br />

The Banat Village Museum is one of the places you "must" take a look<br />

during a visit to <strong>Timisoara</strong>. Reach the museum by bus 45 (from Bastion).<br />

AT THE END<br />

When we visited <strong>Timisoara</strong> (Volume 1) the<br />

first time, it was clear: we need to come<br />

back. The rose blooms and the many<br />

parks have led to <strong>Timisoara</strong>'s nickname<br />

"City of Roses". Of particular note is the<br />

impressive village museum, which is<br />

located in the grounds of the hunting<br />

forest.<br />

During this visit, it is hard to emphasize<br />

what we liked most: the stunning view of<br />

the square in front of the Opera House<br />

from our balcony at the Hotel <strong>Timisoara</strong>,<br />

the fragrant rose garden, the green and<br />

tranquil parks in the city, the spacious and<br />

originally decorated Village Museum, or<br />

the recovery factor at the Hotel Lido, by<br />

which we were able to complete the<br />

journey.<br />

To all the friends and companies that<br />

contributed to the production of this<br />

book: thank you very much.<br />
