Prologue

Time-trial Timișoara, 4km

Parade in Timișoara

Nothing is more appealing for the public than a “parade” of athletes on the city streets. In this case, everything happens in the martyr city of Timișoara. For cyclists, being able to pedal along a central circuit, cheered by hundreds of fans, is a huge morale boost before the 5 difficult stages.

Stage profile

The most visible monument in the square if St. Nepomuk Statue. It is located at the centre of Liberty Square and it resembles the Statue of the Holy Trinity in the Union Square. The two squares are very close, less than 5-minute walk distance.

The Victory Square hosts the National Opera House and the Metropolitan Cathedral, two of the most representative monuments of the city. Close by, we find the artesian well “Fish Fountain”, the she-wolf statue, and the Banat Museum hosted by the Hunyadi Castle.

The Union Square hosts the Roman Catholic Dome, the mineral water fountain, the Orthodox Bishopric, the Serbian Orthodox Church, the Holy Trinity Monument, Bruke House and the Canonical Houses.

One heart beating for cycling.

Yours.
