How safe is Timisoara?

Safety at night:

Safety at night:Safe

Timisoara generally has a safe atmosphere even during the night. It is a city with a low crime rate and police regularly patrolling, especially in the city center and touristic areas. However, as in any other place, it's always a good practice to stay aware of your surroundings, and avoid less crowded or poorly lit areas late in the night for personal safety.
Public transportation:

Public transportation:Safe

Timisoara's public transport is generally safe and efficient for solo female travelers. The city has an extensive network of trams, buses, and trolleys that are well-maintained and mostly timely. During the day, these transport means are fairly crowded with locals and tourists alike, providing a relative sense of security. That said, similar to many other European cities, timeliness of buses and trams might not always be reliable, especially during peak traffic hours, and it might be advisable to keep an eye on your personal belongings. Night transportation is available but less regular. If you are out late, taxis are also a reliable and affordable option. As always, be aware of your surroundings, especially while using public transportation at night or in less crowded areas.
Street harassment:

Street harassment:Low

Timisoara is generally a safe city for solo female travelers when it comes to street harassment. Still, it's always important to stay cautious and vigilant. Most locals are respectful and keep their distance. However, like anywhere else, occasional unwanted attention or comments may happen especially when out at night. It's always a good idea to stick to populated areas and avoid poorly lit or deserted areas especially at night.
Petty crimes:

Petty crimes:Low

Timisoara is generally a safe city with a low petty crime rate targeted towards tourists. Theft and pickpocketing can occasionally happen especially in crowded public spaces and public transport. However, most visits are trouble-free if you exercise common sense precautions, such as keeping your belongings close and avoiding isolated areas late at night.
Tap water:

Tap water:Safe

In Timisoara, tap water is generally considered safe to drink as it undergoes regular health and sanitation inspections. However, as with any city, the water quality may be influenced by the building's plumbing system. It is not uncommon for locals to drink from the tap, yet some may still prefer bottled water due to taste preferences. As a traveler, to err on the side of caution, you may consider using a water purifier or consume bottled water, especially if you have a sensitive stomach.

Solo travel experience

I was in a hostel with people from argelia, turkish and other people from northern africa. At the beginning they seem nice but I stayed in a mixed dorm and in the morning the guy in the upper litter was jarking off, I told the receptionist to pit me in another room, they gave a solo room. One day I went for a running and a guyy stopped me in the street talking romanian and when I said I didn’t speak he said if I wanned to have sex with him, that he had big pennis, i left running the guy still repeating this, I didn’t find one police all the way back to the hostel, the few days I stay after this I notice guys harassing mice looking womens in the street telling them things and every time I tried to go visit some touristic place at least one guy would try to start a conversation put of nowhere. No, I didn’t feel safe here guys. Just to find out later that is one of the countries that allows LEGALLY for women to sell themselves for marriage. Ciao

Timisoara is generally very safe. One thing to avoid are dark parks (which dont have illumination) in the night. You might get robbed there. Also, there are a few pocket thieves in public transports and bus/ tram stations so you want to be careful with your belongings. Basically no need for extra safety measures except common sense.
