The Banat is located in the far west of Romania between the rivers Mureş, Tisa and Danube. The economic and cultural centre is Timişoara, also called "Little Vienna" because of the many baroque buildings.

The region is a good example for the peaceful coexisting of the most different cultures since here beside the Romanian lived also Hungarians, Danube Swabians, Jews, Croats, Bulgarians, Armenians, Slovaks and Czechs.

Getting there

Banat can be easily reached by car, via Hungary or Serbia. The controls at the borders are usually very short.Other entry options are available: by train (the Budapest-Arad-Timisoara route) and by plane.

By plane

Timisoara has an airport, "Traian Vuia", and is therefore very easy and quick to reach by plane.
