Timişoara (/timiˈʃo̯ara/; German: Temeschburg, also Temeswar or Temeschwar, Hungarian: Temesvár, Serbian: Темишвар, Temišvar, Turkish: Tamışvar or Temeşvar) is the third most populous city of Romania and is located in the west of the country.

Hitchhiking out

South towards Belgrade (Serbia) (E 70)

Hitchhiking from Timişoara in the direction of Belgrade it is best to go to the street Calea Sagului. From there it's one hour (60 km) to the Moravița-Stamora border crossing.

The best option is to take the express line 1 (E1), switch to the bus 33 (A33) and go till the end of the line. Hitchhike here (google maps coordinates): 45.701517,21.182777

Nina_Unexia hitchhiked there with two guys (and two huge backpacks) with a sign "SRB" for Serbia. Got a ride within 20 minutes.

West

For direction Novi Sad you have to take the western road (59A), in the direction of Jimbolia.

North-West Road 6

If you need to go by local roads to the North-west (Sandra, Lovrin or Sampetru Mare, or further) you can use a petrol station which is on Calea Torontalu. Just with a good sign and good luck you will get a ride. Do not renounce to buses that may stop. They may not ask you for money.

East (Deva, Alba Iulia, Sibiu, Cluj-Napoca)

You can take bus no 11 from the center to the last station. Right at the bus station, there's an excellent place to hitchhike.

Update: In June 2015,Marion_and_John hitched there. Great spot ! Lots of space for cars to stop. Lots of traffic. We found a lift to Sibiu in 25'. trash:Timișoara
