Timișoara is one of the most important academic, cultural, industrial and business centers in Romania. It is situated in the western corner of Romania, where three countries - Romania, Hungary and Serbia - and several cultures, nationalities, languages and customs converge. Timișoara is the place where the 1989 Revolution started on December 17 . It is at the heart of the Banat region and is also a part of Transylvania. Banat is famous for its beauty, wealth, agriculture and hospitable people. Nearby is the famous Recaș vineyard, with an increasing worldwide recognition for the quality of its wines.
Timișoara means not only economic activity but also social and cultural life. The past and the present meet in this 700 year old, but very European city. A medieval citadel, the Cathedral, baroque monuments and attractive modern buildings complete a wonderful panorama. Numerous parks and the river Bega with its romantic bridges are just some of the features of this city. Cinemas, theatres, an opera house, bars and restaurants, sport facilities and local festivals offer lots of possibilities to spend your spare time in this beautiful academic city, full of students.
Nowadays Timișoara is considered the Silicon Valley of Central and East Europe due to several world-class high-tech companies which have opened the development and production units in the area (Continental Corporation, Nokia, Honeywell, Hella, Atos, IBM, Flex, Kathrein, Delphi, Zoppas etc).
