The oldest settlements in Timisoara area are more than 7500 years old. The first documentary evidence of Timisoara dates from 1212, under the name of Castrum of Tymes (Timis fortress). The first stone fortress was built between 1307 and 1315 on the orders of Hungarian king, Carol Robert, Prince of Anjou. In 1552 Timisoara fortress was conquered by the Ottoman army and the whole surrounding area was transformed into an Ottoman province. On 1716, the Austrian Habsburg troops led by Prince Eugene of Savoya have liberated the city which later became a free imperial city in December 1781. In 1918, in accordance with the Versailles peace treaty, the Timisoara City and Banat Province became part of Romania. In the 20th century Timisoara became a metropolis with more than 400000 inhabitants that concentrate the economical, commercial, demographic and cultural interest of a large area, in this part of Romania. On December 16th 1989 Timisoara was the place where the anti-Communist revolution started.

Timisoara is served by Romania's third-largest airport, Traian Vuia International Airport, located 10 km away from the city center. Flights to and from international or domestic destinations can be made by airlines like Lufthansa, WizzAir, RyanAir, BlueAir, TAROM.
The most convenient way to get from the airport into the city is by taxi (or UBER), at a cost of 50 –75 RON (about 10-15 EUR). There is always the option to take a bus or to rent a car. You can find various car rental companies (Avis, Hertz, Europecar, Ascar, TOP Rent a Car, Maya Rent a Car) at the Timisoara Airport.
Romania's currency is Leu (plural "Lei"), commonly abbreviated as RON. Foreign currencies may be exchanged at banks, authorized exchange offices, airport, ATMs and larger hotels. Major credit cards (Mastercard and Visa) are widely accepted.
The exchange rate is 1 EUR = 4.95 RON
Alternatively, there is the option to fly to/from Budapest (Hungary). Pay attention, this airport is located 286 km away from Timisoara, which will add around 3 - 4 hours to your trip (by car, bus or train).
EU/EEA/Swiss citizens do not need a visa when crossing the border to Romania, but they are required to present a valid national passport, or any document recognized by the Romanian state that certifies their identity. Citizens of non-EU/EEA countries are required at border crossing points to present a passport and a valid entry visa and an invitation (if required). Please check the list of countries whose nationals do / do not need entry visas for Romania here www.mae.ro.
