Introduction

The border town of Arad, some 50km from the crossing into Hungary, lies astride the main road and has good transport connections in and out of Romania. There are not many traditional sights here, but the city is a convenient stopover on your first or last night in the country. Fans of late-19th- and early-20th-century architectural styles such as neoclassical and Secession will enjoy a stroll up the city’s long tree-lined central boulevard, B-dul Revoluţiei, running north–south.
