ORADEA - Culture and wellness combined!

Enjoy a short visit to Oradea – picturesque streets adorned with magnificent Art Nouveau buildings, a city with centuries of history behind. Oradea’s architectural heritage is impressive and it earned the city the inclusion in European Art Nouveau Network, alongside important cities such as Budapest, Barcelona or Vienna. Admire old residential palaces who display various influences from the 19th century Romantic Hungarian style and the avantgarde Secession (Vienna) school, to German (Berlin) and end of 19th century French School.

We mention here the Black Eagle Palace (designed to house cultural halls as a theater, ballrooms or casino’s), the Town Hall Palace – with the Tower open for visitors, the Palace of Justice, or the Moskovitz Palace. Then religious edifices showing beautiful ecclesiastical architecture – as the Moon Church (with the mechanism indicating the Moon phases), the Lutheran Evangelical Cathedral, the Roman Catholic Cathedral, the Ursuline Convent, the Capuchin Monastery or the Synagogues (Zion Neolog and Orthodox), speaking about people from different confessions living together and developing the city throughout the centuries.

During the visit we include also another important landmark of the city, recently restored – the Fortress of Oradea, serving both as military and religious purposes. It was the residence for the Roman-Catholic Diocese of Oradea for more than 5 centuries, starting with the 11th century; the inhabitants have found shelter inside the walls during many invasions in the Middle Ages, the place being administrated by different rules – Hungarian, Transylvanian, Ottoman or Habsburg.

Day 1
Get to know the city

The guided tour starts in the morning. You will stroll around the beautiful historic center in Oradea via Republica Street and have plenty of time to take photos with all the Art Nouveau-type buildings that are to be found at any street corner - Black Eagle Palace, Town Hall Palace, Moskovitz Palace, Saint Nicholas Greek Catholic Church, and overlook the urban scenery in the Ferdinand Plaza and Union Plaza.

Darvas-La Roche house is something not to be missed - this museum's exhibition is dedicated to interiors in "La Belle Époque" style, it reconstructs the bourgeois environment of Oradea. The objects presented in the exhibitions were characteristic of bourgeois homes, villas and palaces, built in the Art Nouveau style.

Next important objective is Oradea Fortress. The craftsman’s workshops, medieval reenactments, events and restaurants have the power to transport you back in time. Currently, Oradea’s Fortress is also the center of Oradea’s cultural activities, hosting events ranging from medieval festivals to movie nights spent in Fortress Park.

For lunch and dinner the food offer is rich in options. One could enjoy a tranquil place by the water, at river Crisul Alb, in the middle of the city at Rivo restaurant, or a steak (from “ready to cook’ to “ready to eat” with bio veggies - a concept brought from UK) at Piata9 restaurant, or a fine exquisite Mediterranean food Crinul Alb Restaurant. 

In the evening you will have free time to spend, the accomodation will be in the city center.

Day 2
Wellness day

On the second day, after breakfast we will visit a Lavender Farm near Oradea (open from march to november), a 2ha park where you can stroll around the locally grown lavender flowers and take photos in the beautiful scenery.

In the afternoon, repare to go to the Ramada Hotel in Oradea which is housing the Riserva Wine Spa - The first wine spa in Romania!

Riserva Wine Spa Oradea introduces you a new concept – therapy using wine. The spa offers plenty of services to choose from. The terrace offers a wonderful panorama of Oradea’s historical city, which we recommend you to enjoy next to a glass of wine, straight from the jacuzzi.

There are plenty of treatment options: body massages, facials, body wrapping, sauna, salt room, and many more. You can choose a professional massage, using grape products, starting with a glass of wine, a homemade grape gelee and continuing with the peeling; then, finally the relaxation massage – "voyage divine".There is also a fitness room with a great scenery overlooking the city, and THE HUB, the hotel restaurant, worth trying the Romanian traditional food for dinner. The accomodation is at the same hotel as the prior night.
