Living in Oradea

The beautiful Romanian city of Oradea is sometimes described as "Paris on the River Pece" and it isn't hard to see why. One of the finest products of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, any expatriate moving to Oradea with an interest in architecture or history can rest assured that this is a city overflowing with beauty and heritage. Major sights to enjoy include the opulent Episcopal Palace, a museum built in Viennese Baroque style and famed for its beautiful windows – it has one for each day of the year. A wander down the lovely Calea Republicii is another must for expats living in Oradea, as are visits to the city’s other famous landmarks such as the Cetatea Oradea fortress, the unique Biserica cu Lună church and the wonderfully named Black Eagle passage.
