About Heritage of Timisoara

Heritage of Timisoara was born after considering the many historical buildings that our city has, but also the lack of knowledge that the general public has about these buildings. A series of events that analyzed these buildings followed. The information gathered about Timisoara’s heritage has been shared through several events, but also on the platform heritageoftimisoara.ro.
