It has lots of superb turn of the (19) century buildings. It had a modern urban look long before the 1878 Liberation. I think it used to have trams in the early 20c but the system was closed (why?!? stupid communism!). the population is bout 150K, one of the biggest and most industrialised cities. It's a major Danube port.


















How do you find it? I luv it :D
