Introducing Oradea

Fans of art nouveau and Viennese Secession architecture dating from the late-19th and early-20th centuries will want to make a special stopover in Oradea. While many of the once-elegant buildings here have been allowed to fall into disrepair, visitors with a sharp architectural eye will see Secession’s signature lyric design elements and inlaid jewelwork on buildings up and down the main pedestrian walkway, Calea Republicii, and across the Crişul Repede river at the Black Eagle Arcade.
