Among all the beautiful parks in Timișoara, the Roses’ Park is the one that appeals the most to the eye and…to the nose! Situated on the right bank of the river Bega and very close to the Victory Square, the Roses’ Park is the perfect place for a romantic rendezvous.
Built in 1891 for the Universal Exhibition held at Timișoara, the park was admired by Emperor Franz Josef. This was also the park’s first name, which changed during the years to Rosarium Park, Queen Maria Rosarium Park or the Park for Culture and Rest. Destroyed during World War II, the park was re-establish between 1953 and 1965, when it was recorded to display 1,200 types of roses.
The park has undergone recent rehabilitation works and was reopened in May 2012. At the moment, it exhibits over 9,000 roses belonging to 900 species of roses plated in specially arranged gardens and over 400 trees. Visitors can now benefit from renovated alleys, benches and pergolas. The Roses’ Park also includes a summer amphitheatre, whose stage can host concert and various other types of cultural and artistic manifestations.
