Piata Unirii [Union Square] is the oldest square in Timisoara, in a superb baroque style. It was first called Piata Losonczy, after Stefan Losonczy who was killed by the Turkish army in 1552, when the city was conquered by the Ottomans. The name we use today was given after 1919, because the piazza was the destination of Romanian armies entering the city after the union with Romania. The square brings together in perfect harmony, three aspects of the life in Timisoara: religion, culture and leisure. Traditionally, it was a cultural and religious place. Now, the laic part was blended superbly into this original mix, making Piata Unirii the perfect place for both young and old people, of all cultures and nationalities.
Piata Unirii has it all: tradition, modernism, extravagance and style !

A faded building but still glorious. I like this very nicely composed picture with well saturated colours and a good light management. You have captured a very warm atmosphere in this elegant city.
