Timfloralis - Festival of flowers in Timisoara

27-29 April 2018 the Flower Festival Timfloralis took place in Timisoara, a city in Western Romania. From the Mihai Viteazul Bridge near the Orthodox Cathedral and up to Liberty Square, the City was decorated with flowers.

New this year was the decoration of the Mihai Viteazul bridge with floral motives dedicated to the 100 years centenary of Romania and looking towards Timisoara 2021 European Capital of Culture. 
The next stop was Victoriei square, where there were:
- time machine by Alexandra Luca (a car decorated with flowers),
- flower street furniture by Florin Jiboc,
- a flower decorated fountain, work of Filomena Brisc.
Passing under coloured umbrellas one could go into Liberty Square where there were three main activities:
- manequins decorated in plants in the work "The Ethnic Spirit of Timisoara" by Alina Nagy-Ghinea,
- cut trees decorated in the work "The fruit tree of the guilds" by the same artist,
- flower commerce.
Timisoara is a multi-ethinic City, with historical German (Danube Swabians), Hungarian, Romanian and Serbian communities, hence the Installation which we chose as photo. The manequins are around the statue of Virgin Mary, a statue similar to that of the Holy Trinity in Unity Square (near the catholic cathedral) and ispired from the pest column in Vienna. Timisoara used to be called Little Vienna.
The entrances in different parts were done under heart shaped flower gates which remained also after the festival.
