Published on April 21, 2024 by Zoltan Nyaradi

Liberty Square is a special place in Timisoara. It can be found between two other important squares: Victory Square and Union Square. If you’re starting from Victory Square, which is right at the heart of the city, you’ll need to take a stroll down Alba Iulia Street, which runs alongside the Opera House. Just follow that street, and before you know it, you’ll find yourself right in Liberty Square.

When you reach Liberty Square, you’ll discover a lovely place that got a makeover a few years back. Honestly, it looks even better now than it did before the renovations. The improvements really make it shine!

One of the best things about Liberty Square is its mix of old buildings. Liberty Square is always buzzing with activity. You might see street performers showing off their skills or markets selling handmade crafts. There are often concerts and festivals happening, too. And if you’re hungry, there are plenty of cafes and restaurants to grab a bite and soak in the atmosphere.

Almost in the middle of the square you will find the monument of St. Mary which which is dedicated to the Hungarian revolution and liberation war of 1848–1849 and right behind he monument, there is the Faculty of Music and Theater.

Back in 2015, Liberty Square went through a major makeover as part of a revamp project in the Cetate district. The square got a whole new look with red brick laid out in neat circles, giving it a fresh and inviting vibe. It was like giving an old friend a stylish makeover, making it more attractive and vibrant for everyone to enjoy.
