Plenty of birds at the Hotel Timisoara by 


Something spooked the pigeons in the square outside the Hotel Timisoara. Instead of being irritated at whoever scared them and compromised my photograph, I used the opportunity and captured as many as possible.

I also love the patterns in the path, somehow the shadows of the birds manage to accentuate the lines on the floor. At least they do to me…. :-)

While for me, Timisoara holds a friend who I have known for a long time (and who I met here on this trip for the 1st time), it is not without its own story.

Most famously, Timisoara was the first town in Europe to have electric lampposts (street lights)! In addition, the following is from Wikipedia… it was also the second European and the first city in what is now Romania with horse drawn trams in 1867. Gustave Eiffel, the creator of the Eiffel Tower in Paris, built one of Timişoara’s footbridges over the Bega.

The hotel stands on Victory square, which was first designed in the early 20th Century when the old city walls were being demolished and the centre of Timisoara was able to be redeveloped. That is about the extent of my Romanian translation skills but the rest of the article can be found here on Wikipedia

Timisoara, Timis, Romania. October 2008.
