Regina Maria Park's Gate

poarta parcului-sm3 August 1919 Bd.
architect László Székely

On the opposite to the Neptun Palace, the gate to Regina Maria Park (the oldest park in Timişoara) is singled out, originally called Coronini Park (in 1862, after the 1851 to 1860 military and civil governor of the Serbian Vojvodina and Timişian Banat).

The park’s gate was designed in the 1900s style, the szeceszió movement, and forms a successful ensemble together with Decebal Bridge and Neptun Palace. Unfortunately, the gate should urgently be restored: the spire of one of the two towers that flank the entry is missing, as is the monumental torchiere, which was above the entrance.

Under the gate’s arch still hang three of the four chains supporting the torchiere. Two plaques, one on each tower, remind that, on December 17, 1989, there fell the first martyr of the Romanian anti-communist revolution, as well as other martyrs who died for freedom, and that Ioan Slavici, one of the most important Romanian writers, and Mihai Eminescu, the greatest Romanian poet, were present in the park between 1865 – 1867, and respectively in July 1868.
