The Bega river is pretty nice but it is not that well taken care of so looks kind of dirty, for sure the area arround it can be improved. Also not so many restaurants or cafe shops on the riverbank so mainly walking or bike...More

This is at the heart of the city and a great place to have a walk, ride a bike or just clear your mind. I was expecting more action on the riverbanks, but quiet areas are also welcome.

It's a nice long walk but it can be overcrowded during evenings so it's far from a relaxing walk if you're looking for one. You can sometimes take a boat and ride it on the river too. Good for biking and rollerblading.

The Bega Canal (this is not the natural river course) to the city's inner south is lined extensively by parks and paths. Ignore the garish children's playgrounds and it's a pleasant place to meander (nobody sticks to one side of the paths or the other)...More

I ran here each morning along the well paved river paths. The river takes you around the city center and parks and though the many neighborhoods along the river. I felt safe and it was lovely.

Bega river runs through Timisoara and makes a great place to relax by. It's not very big, but big enough for some water sports to go on, which makes quite a spectacle, especially on weekends.

The river walk provides a quiet respite from the noisy streets of Timisoara. Quaint bridges and walkways with steps down to the slow moving water. The central section is more park-like than the western section.
