Two days in Oradea  



Here is what we recommend for a weekend in Oradea

Day 1

  • Before you start exploring Oradea, check out the agenda of events and the points of major interest from our TOP 10;   

  • Start with a light stroll to the city centre, from Union Square, then continue walking on Vasile Alecsandri Street until you arrive at the Sion Synagogue; cross St. Ladislaus Bridge towards Republicii Avenue and finish at the Baroque Complex.       

  • Take 30 minutes to visit the new Art Nouveau museum - housed in the Darvas – La Roche House

  • For lunch and dinner, we recommend one of the restaurants on Republicii Avenue, Vasile Alecsandri Street, or on the banks of Crișul Repede - places praised and appreciated by locals and tourists alike.       

  • Relax after a day of walking at a SPA or join a party in the city!       


Day 2

  • Divide this day in two: fun at Aquapark Nymphaea and a history lesson at Oradea Fortress. You choose the order, according to your whim. Keep in mind, however, that both attractions are a "must-see" for a weekend in Oradea.     

  • Inside the Fortress, there are two museums to explore and a lot of interesting exhibitions that you can wander around, also suitable for children. We also recommend the Griffon Hall, the astronomical observatory, or a magical sunset in the Fortress Park. The atmosphere here is perfect for your holiday album.


Day 3

  • After your (late) check-out, you still have enough time for a bike ride. You can rent one in the city centre and cruise at leisure speed on the banks of Crișul Repede river, admiring the city along the way.

  • Breathe in the fresh air of the city, while pedalling through the open-air #ArtNouveau museum.       

  • Along the way, stop at a cosy café, or have a chat with the locals. You should know that the people of Oradea are very warm and friendly, and it is for a reason that the expression #VeselCaUnOrădean (“cheerful as an Oradea dweller”) has become of common use for most Romanians. If you want to take a souvenir back home, you can go for a short "shopping spree" in the authentic local stores or at one of the shopping centres in the city.       

  • Let us guess! Now, you are already thinking about the people with whom you will visit Oradea again. It's the right time to book your next #HolidayInOradea. 😊



If you are not a morning person or chasing meals is not your thing, choose to lodge with breakfast included or try a hearty brunch at one of the most famous bistros in Oradea. The nightlife here offers many alternatives. You can choose a wine bar, a terrace on the Riverside or a party in #Pasaj, and you will take home fabulous memories, especially if you happen to stumble upon a pop-up event in the city.
