The Reformed Community Palace

biserica reformata-smThe palace is situated on 1 Timotei Cipariu St. is known today as the Reformed Church, and it was built in 1901-1902.

The development is dominated by the sharp forms of the roof elements, setting out the corners of the building. These roof elements are inspired by the pointed figures of the medieval towers from the Gothic period. The building’s appearance corresponds to the 1900s architecture with elements inspired by the Neo-Gothic movement.

Josef Geml, Timişoara’s mayor between 1914 and 1919, said that this development represents “one of the most monumental and most beautiful buildings in the Elisabetin”.

placa revolutie-sm-geThe building also houses the Reformed Church and the priest’s house.

It is here the rally against priest Laszlo Tokes’s deportation took place on December 15, 1989, which turned into a meeting against the dictatorship.

This is basically where the anticommunist Romanian Revolution began in 1989!
