Arad is situated north of Timisoara. It has a huge citadel (still used by the military) and lovely architecture (many buildings were erected in the 1800s during the last decades of Hapsburg rule). You will notice a lot of Western influences, and the inhabitants are usually fluent in Hungarian and German, too. If you go, stop by the museum in the Palace of Culture to see the exhibit about Hapsburg political intrigue.
