MAIN ATTRACTIONS

Arad Fortress

The Arad Fortress was built on the left bank of the Mureș River, during the reign of Empress Maria Theresa, according to the plans of General Ferdinand Philipp Harsch. The construction, made between 1762-1783, was designed in the shape of a star with six corners and provided with three rows of underground casemates and ditches that could be easily flooded in case of danger. Inside the fortress is the Franciscan Church, the last four Franciscan monks living here until 1861. The Arad Museum Complex was opened in 1893 as an exhibition of relics of the Pasoptist Revolution. It is located in the Cultural Palace building, next to the city’s philharmonic and library. The museum hosts several exhibitions, the collection of archeology and medieval history, as well as a gallery of European art.

The Red Church

The Red Church is a historical and architectural monument in Arad, which serves as a place of worship of the Evangelical-Lutheran Church, with services in Hungarian. The building is built in neo-Gothic style, with a 46-meter high main tower and stained glass windows by artist Josef Polka from Budapest. The church organ is of the Wegensstein type, electropneumatic and was made in Timisoara and installed in 1927. At its inauguration, the church had three massive bells, weighing 1,590 kg, two of which were melted at the behest of the authorities during the First World War, for their bronze to be made into projectiles.

Statue of Liberty from Arad

The Statue of Liberty in Arad is a monument unveiled in 1890 to commemorate the executions of the thirteen anti-Ossburg military convicts, known as the "13 of Arad". The monument was dismantled and moved in 1925, on the grounds that the respective generals had fought against the Romanians. It was kept in a military unit in the Arad Fortress. In March 2004, the statue was relocated in the Romanian-Hungarian Reconciliation Park, arranged in the Firemen's Square in Arad.
