One of the most important sights of Oradea is the Oradea City Hall Tower. It is part of the administration building and was built according to the plans of architect Rimanoczy Kalman Jr. between 1902-1903, in neoclassical style and covers an area of 5,508 square metres. 4 floors, 59 m, 250 stairs take you above the historical centre of Oradea!

The tower is almost 50 m high and has four main levels, three of which are panoramic.

We invite you on a unique journey into the rise of the petit bourgeoisie. The museum exhibition dedicated to the interiors of Oradea "La Belle Époque" recreates the bourgeois environment of Oradea. The objects in the exhibitions were characteristic of bourgeois dwellings, in villas and palaces, built in the Art Nouveau

The building located at 4 Armatei Române Street, the former headquarters of the Masonic Lodges, is one of the most interesting and spectacular in Oradea, from an architectural point of view and from the point of view of the facade decorations. The construction was started according to the design of architects Bálint Zoltán and Jámbor Lajos in 1901, and attracted the attention of the public in Oradea, even if its dimensions are not impressive. It was completed during 1902, the building's purpose being that of a Masonic lodge headquarters. It is therefore no coincidence that many of the building's decorative elements are of Masonic inspiration, starting with the facade, deliberately designed without windows, with a finely marked portico.

The exhibition History of the Jews of Oradea was opened in the Aachvas Rein Synagogue in recognition of the Jewish community's contribution to the city's history. The names of those who perished in the Nazi camps inscribed on the walls, as well as the graphics depicting the Jews imprisoned in the ghetto and those imprisoned in the camp, are emotionally charged. In memory of the victims, stones were placed on the stairs.
