  1. 1. Timişoara
  2. 2. Overview O Timişoara (German: Temeswar, also formerly Temeschburg or Temeschwar; Hungarian: Temesvár; Yiddish: ‫;טעמשוואר‬ Serbian: Темишвар, Temišvar; Banat Bulgarian: Timišvár; Turkish: Temeşvar; Slovak: Temešvár) is the capital city of Timiş County, and the primary social, economic and cultural center of Western Romania. O The third-most populous city in Romania (behind only the capital Bucharest and Cluj-Napoca), with a population of 319,279 recorded at the 2011 census (compared to 307,347 in 2007 – an increase of 11,932, or 3.8%), Timişoara is the unofficial capital city of the historical region of Banat. O In September 2016, Timişoara was voted the European Capital of Culture for 2021.

  4. 4. Ethnic map of Banat (2001–2002) O The term Banat geographically corresponds to the historical region divided among Romania, Serbia and Hungary. O The eastern part lies in Western Romania (the counties of Timiș, Caraș- Severin, and Arad south of the Körös/Criș River on the border with Hungary, and the western part of Mehedinți); the western part lies in Northeastern Serbia (mostly in the autonomous province of Vojvodina, excluding a portion in Belgrade); the smallest part is in Southeastern Hungary (Csongrád county). O The inhabitants of the region of Banat are mainly ethnic Romanians, Serbs, Hungarians, Germans, Krashovani, Ukrainians, Slovaks, Bulgarians, Czechs, Croats, Jews, Romani and other ethnicities.
  5. 5. Thirteenth and fourteenth centuries O First recorded in 1212 as the Roman castrum (or fort) Temesiensis, Timişoara became a fortress in the middle of marshland in the fourteenth century. O The Tatars demolished the town in the thirteenth century, but its castle (right) was rebuilt and served as the residence of Charles I of Hungary, the King of Hungary and Croatia from 1308–1342.

  7. 7. Sixteenth through twentieth centuries O The Turks conquered the town in 1552 and occupied it until the Austrians took it in 1716. O Following the 1718 Treaty of Passarowitz, the city and the region – known as the Banat of Temesvár – were administered by Vienna and inhabited by non-Magyars, mainly Swabian Germans. O Over the course of 107 days in 1848, the city resisted a blockade by Hungarian revolutionaries. O After a brief Serbian occupation in 1918–1919, the 1920 Treaty of Trianon allocated Timişoara to Romania. O Anti-government demonstrations that erupted in Timișoara on December 15–17, 1989, ignited the revolution that overthrew communist leader Nicolae Ceaușescu’s régime. O It was Ceaușescu’s use of lethal force to put down the demonstrations in Timișoara that incited the army to switch to the side of the revolution. O On Christmas Day, after Ceaușescu and his wife were convicted of crimes against the state (economic harm and genocide), they were immediately killed by firing squad.
