Why to travel in this region?
Traveling to Banat you will make contact with the Romanians from the west. The region is beautiful especially by its nature. The cities and the monuments are not so many and not so important, like in other parts of Romania. With all this Is worth it to visit Timișoara and Arad, old cities developed by the Habsburgs having their importance in European history.
