Guided tour with Adriana Babeți: "The Hidden Waters"

A story unknown to the general public about the waters that today are no longer seen in the east of Timișoara: the waters of the Timișul Mic/Bega: arms, small canals, marshes, ponds. But also about some mysterious fountains from hundreds of years ago.

A history (equally little known) of all that this network of waters has brought with it, starting in the 18th century: dams, weirs, sluices, channels for transporting wood and salt, small ports, warehouses, towers. And above all mills with many manufactories. A beginning for everything that was to come from the Fabric neighborhood. And later - also there, after the waters had been covered with earth - new stories and histories about some streets, their houses and recreational areas in the 20th century.
