Why come to Startup Weekend Timisoara? Well it’s in the title, come for Timisoara, stay for Startup Weekend. The food and accommodation is on us so don’t worry about it.

Union Square Timisoara Origins of Timisoara come from Middle Ages and the place always played an important role in the history due to its strategic location at the crossroads. Over the century it was under the rule of Hungarians, Ottomans and Habsburgs.

Did you know that Timisoara was the first European city to introduce horse-drawn trams (in 1869) and electrical street lighting (in 1889)? Yup, it’s true. And if that is not enough, Johnny Weissmuller, Hollywood’s original Tarzan, was born here.

Anyway, the charm of this city, settled on the northern bank of the Bega River, lies in its distinct architectural character and vibrant cultural life. It is frequently referred to as “Little Vienna” and is home to year-round musical and theatrical performances, art galleries, museums and a buzzing nightlife. So you won’t get the chance to be bored, we guarantee it!

One more thing, we bragged enough about how amazing our city is but we want also to prove it to you. Timisoara was chosen to be the European Capital of Culture in 2021. Check out here what other people said about Timisoara.
