What to see in Oradea?
We only want to make you curious enough to visit, so here are just 3 things that you will see in Oradea! You have to discover the others, by yourself!
The Black Eagle Palace (Palatul Vulturul Negru)
The Black Eagle Palace is the most spectacular secession style architectural achievement in Oradea and Transylvania.
The story of the Black Eagle Palace is linked to the new urban development vision of the city, given the reorganization of the Small Square (St. Ladislau Square), today Union Square.
The palace’s passageway is open to visitors. Situated across three streets, it is the main attraction point for tourists, but also locals. The passageway houses the nightlife of the city, being the center of entertainment. Numerous cafés, pubs and fast food restaurants are available to you day and night.
The interior areas are not open to visitors.
Oradea’s City Hall Tower
The City Hall Tower is part of the administrative building, which was built based on the plans of architect Rimanóczy Kálmán, Jr. between 1902 and 1903 in the neoclassical style and stretches across 5,508 m2.
From above, the building resembles the letter “U” with an open side. The edifice is most immediately remarkable due to its monumentality. It features a ground floor and two upper floors, with access on each side. The façade oriented towards Crişul Repede (the Rapid Criş) has a tower that features a clock at its highest level.
The building has three interior courtyards. The decorative emphasis is, first of all, on the neoclassical main façade, especially the central section.
4 levels, 59 m, 250 stair steps take you above the historical center of Oradea!
There is a small central square with an unequivocally rich architectural significance in the Oradea-Olosig district.
The present-day eclectic character of the square is the result of public constructions (residential houses, the theater, banks, hotels and restaurants) carried out at the beginning of the 20th century.
The small square has the shape of a triangle, with the base being formed by the area where the theater is currently situated. Its middle angle is slightly tilted. The square was built as a result of the reconstruction of the city, of the public building projects from the 18th century.
