The country's fourth largest city, Timisoara is a university and cultural city, endowed with many parks and gardens. The cradle of the 1989 revolution, it takes pride in benefiting from the country's highest living standards and strong Western influence. It is true that Timisoara, which was for a long time under Habsburg domination, radiates a friendly atmosphere. With its multicoloured Baroque architecture, its fountains and cafés, its relaxed way of life and numerous restaurants, it is a little like a "small Vienna" of central Europe. Its main points of interest are its fabulous orthodox cathedral, the Religious Arts Museum and Banat Museum, Unirii Square and Libertatii Square.
