WELCOME

WELCOME TO ARAD! WELCOME TO ROMANIA! Arad   is   the   first   large   city   you   meet   when   you   come   to   Romania,   being   the   country’s   main   gateway   to   Western   Europe.   Located   on   one   of   the   key continental   transport   corridors,   the   city   provides   modern   road,   rail   and   air   access.   With   a   population   of   160,000   inhabitants,   Arad   is   one   of   Romania’s   most dynamic, flourishing and welcoming cities. Thriving   in   beautiful   architectural   environment,   Arad   is   a   perfect   combination   of   modern   life   and   a   unique   historical   and   cultural   heritage,   revealed   in   the city’s   multi-ethnic   and   multi-   cultural   spirit.   The   local   hospitality   is   a   memorable   experience   for   any   visitor.   Guests   enjoy   the   local   gastronomy   and   are enchanted   by   the   fragrant   bouquet   of   the   wines   produced   in   the   Arad   Vineyard.   The   wine   culture   is   one   of   the   most   valuable   legacies   of   this   region,   where   the first vineyards were planted as early as the 11th century. Arad   standed   out   as   a   major   economic   and   cultural   center   since   the   19th   century.   The   city   was   a   pioneer   of   the   great   industry,   whose   tradition   is continued   today   in   railway   carriage   and   tram   manufacturing,   as   well   as   in   furniture   and   textile   industry.   The   energies   and   resources   generated   by   the prosperous   economy   have   always   been   directed   to   serve   the   community,   through   the   constant   promotion   of   education   and   art.      At   present,   the   city   is preparing its candidacy for the title of European Capital of Culture in 2021. Physical   education   and   sports   have   always   been   part   of   the   locals’   culture   and   have   been   promoted   at   national   level.   Shooting   sport   enthusiasts   opened the   first   sports   club   in   the   country   in   1831,   and   the   Arad   Gymnastics   Association   was   founded   in   1879.   As   life   in   Arad   has   always   been   closely   connected   with the   Mureș   River,   the   first   rowing   club   in   the   country   was   opened   here   in   1890,   and   the   city   organised   the   first   national   rowing   race   in   1923.   The   inhabitants   of Arad   were   also   the   first   to   stir   the   interest   for   football,   in   1899   when   they   organised   the   first   official   football   game   played   on   Romania’s   present   territory. Through   the   years,   the   sportsmen   of   Arad   have   distinguished   themselves   in   national,   international   and   Olympic   competitions.   Today,   they   proudly   represent Romania   in   international   throwing   events,   lawn   tennis,   table   tennis,   women’s   basketball   and   others.   Arad   is   also   part   of   the   motor   sports   world   with   an   annual international rally and motorcycle racing.

ARAD MUSEUM

The   Museum   Arad   was   opened   in   1893,   as   an   exhibition   of   Relics   of   the Revolution   from   1848,   in   the   lobby   from   the   2nd   floor   of   the   local   State Theatre.   Two   decades   later,   the   museum   has   been   moved   into   the   new   built Cultural   Palace   (1913),   along   with   the   philharmonic   and   town   library.   Besides the   old   relics   exhibition,   archeological   and   medieval   history   collections   were put   on   display   and   an   European   art   gallery   has   been   opened   as   well.   In   the inter-war   period   these   have   been   completed   with   an   ethnography   exhibition and   two   memorial   rooms   dedicated   to   the   local   politicians   Vasile   Goldis   and Stefan Cicio-Pop (1934).

ARAD ADMINISTRATIVE PALACE

The   initial   location   of   the   town   hall   was   in   the   Avram   Iancu   Square   from the   17th   century.   Following   the   development   of   the   city   and   the   shift   of   the center   from   Avram   Iancu   to   the   new   areas,   the   city   council   decided   to   build another one closer to the new core of the city. They   hired   the   Budapestan   architect   Ödön   Lechner,   who   came   up   with an   design.   Due   to   financial   problems,   the   project   was   found   impossible   to build.   After   that   they   hired   another   architect,   Ferenc   Pekar   who   modified   the blueprints, cutting out some of the elements. It was inaugurated in 1877.
