Unique architectural heritage



Oradea borrowed something from the architectural aesthetics of the great historical empires - the Habsburg, Ottoman, and Austro-Hungarian ones. The way they combine, as a reflection of the recognized and embraced tolerance, makes Oradea a very special city, with a strong personality.


The Art Nouveau style with Secession accents and influences, the Baroque style, and the medieval stellar bastion one - give the city an architectural value that is hard to match. It is not for nothing that Oradea was named the Art Nouveau capital of Romania. A walk through the streets of Oradea will captivate you and will irreversibly turn you into a long-term admirer of the city. But the beauty of the city's cultural heritage does not end here because the historical stages of its development offer many other things to appreciate, being an ideal background for organizing unique events.


Art Nouveau, Life Nouveau


An important historical and religious symbol, Oradea Fortress is one of the most important medieval monuments in Transylvania. Today, after the renovation completed in 2015, it hosts the main events in Oradea, while the moat of the fortress is one of the most beautiful promenade areas in the city. The versatility of the indoor and outdoor spaces within the Fortress provides an exceptional setting for business events, in a location with a very strong historical and cultural background.
