Vasile Alecsandri Street  



Do you truly want feel the vibe of the city? Try one of the terraces or restaurants on Vasile Alecsandri Street and let yourself be surprised by the energy of Oradea!

There is no way you can miss this pedestrian street. A first reason would be that Vasile Alecsandri Street begins in Union Square and goes all the way to December 1st Park, towards Oradea Fortress - one of the most important tourist attractions of the city. Moreover, you will surely notice it when passing through Union Square - the friendly terraces will draw your appetite, you will be attracted by the bustle of passers-by, or you will want to have a close up of the pastel architecture that harmoniously outlines the pedestrian. 


Whatever the reason, we encourage you to stop by and we offer you several other reasons: at number 4 you will find the glassware warehouse that belonged to the Deutsch family, which has been here since the end of the 19th century. The building has kept its former charm for more than a century and has remained one of the most attractive secession-style façades in Oradea. With beautiful ornated decorations, floral motifs inspired from traditional embroidery, the façade itself is a commercial for the glassware, china and chandeliers store that once functioned here.

From Union Square to the Fortress


The rehabilitation of Vasile Alecsandri street considerably increased the tourist attractiveness of the city, by offering tourists and locals the opportunity to closely admire the beautiful architecture of the city, along a route consisting of Republicii Avenue, Ferdinand Square, Union Square, Vasile Alecsandri Street and 1st December Park - with Oradea Fortress as a final destination. Since you will probably walk this route several times, you must know that there will be something new to discover every time!
