Timisoara, ROMANIA

Timisoara is a nice city with baroque influences (here is a satellite view of the city). It has a long history, being first mentioned by Ptolemeus under the name of Zambara. After the roman conquest of Dacia it became known as Tibiscum and later as Temeswar, during the austrian administration. The remains of the roman fortifications, as well as a portion of its medieval castle can still be visited today. The city also has an old brewery dated 1718.
