In Timisoara, Ilie and Istvan, students at 2 major universities in Timisoara are our guides

Ilie leads a tour of Timisoara

Ilie finished his 3-year Geography degree last year.  He is a member of the Romanian student geography association and is continuing his studies as a Masters student in territorial planning and sustainable development at Universităţii de Vest din Timisoara.

Ilie tells us that in March, the municipality held a street festival for the student associations.  Students from the art and music departments were invited to paint their graffiti on the walls of a building that the municipality will restore someday in the future.  Timisoara is home to more than 30,000 students.
