The hosts gave the Serbian Brothers a two-hour tour of the city’s sights with expert explanations from the museum historian. The crown of the tour of Timisoara sights was a visit to the central Unification Square, whose paths and spacious lawn are arranged in the shape of the symbol of Freemasonry, with an abundance of Freemasonic elements. We also encountered the rich Serbian heritage in this city, with lunch and socializing in the Serbian restaurant “Karađorđe”. After the Ritual Work, a festive dinner was arranged for the guests, among whom were members of the GLS Delegation, with the sounds of Romanian and Serbian ethnic music.
