Oradea and thermal water
Even to the people who live here or for those who visit it a lot, Transylvania will always have the power to surprise and reinvent itself. Old cities dusting themselves off and presenting themselves in new and modern clothes, small communities rediscovering their heritage and cuisine, or natural sites preserving some of Europe’s last untouched mountains and forests – you name it, Transylvania will surprise you each time…
We will depart from Timisoara in the morning and after about 2,5 hours, will reach the city of Oradea. It used to be one of the most important religious and historical cities in Transylvania, with an impressive 18th century citadel, restored in the past years, where one can witness the many phases of Transylvanian history. The city center is a landmark for the Art Nouveau architecture, with several palaces, hotels and institutions, designed by brilliant architects, that have been brought to light in the past couple of years. We will get a chance to discover the Orthodox and Catholic cathedral, the Zion Synagogue and the famous, “Black Eagle” complex. We invite you to just sit back, enjoy a glass of Transylvanian wine and discover Oradea’s flair…
After lunch, we will drive to Aquapark Nymphaea and SPA. Western Romania is famous for its healing thermal waters and here we’ll enjoy an afternoon at a local spa. Different kinds of massages and treatments, warm pools and an aquaworld with several waterslides await us…
In the evening we will return to Timisoara.
