Casa cu lei Union Square 6
Unirii Square is the oldest square in Timişoara and one of Art Encounters’ hubs.

Today’s name was given in 1919 because this was the place where the Romanian troops entered Timişoara, unifying Banat region with Big Romania.[more...]

TEBA Halls Arad, Patria Street 14C
The history of this place makes from the Teba factory a symbol of glory - both military, industrial, natural or urban - of Arad, but also of its continuous identity reinvention. Situated on the side towards Timişoara, on the riverbanks of Mureş, between the Swabian neighbourhood Aradu Nou and the old town, the Teba halls cover today the spot on which, in 16th century, the Ottomans erected the first fortress of Arad.[more...]

The Academy Library Episcop Augustin Pacha Street 7
You enter through a richly sculpted gate with wooden mechanisms that struggle to turn on their ancient and almost seized hinges… The building – huge, bearing the evident impress of the German Renaissance after whose style it is built – greets you with a long corridor leading to an inner courtyard.[more...]
