Timisoara, one of the most beau­ti­ful and vi­brant Ro­ma­nian me­trop­o­lises, was the first main­land Euro­pean city to be lit by elec­tric street lamps, back in 1884. As per in­ter­na­tional stan­dards, it was sec­ond only to New York City and it had 731 elec­tric lamps put into op­er­a­tion on a to­tal length of 59 kilo­me­ters. The fil­a­ments in those early days were made of coal.
