Straddling the Mures River and occupying parts of both Crisana province and Banat, Arad traces its history back to the 11th century. Arad developed as a major trading post during the Turkish occupation, between 1551 and 1699. After 1699, the city was ruled by the Habsburg Monarchy and in 1834 Arad was declared a free royal town by Emperor Francis I of Austria.

If you need car rental and Arad airport is your next flight destination, it is recommended that you book online to save both time and money. Arad International Airport (ARW) is approximately 3km to the west of Arad, in western Romania. As Timisoara Airport is just 60km south of Arad Airport, many people choose to fly there instead. This makes Arad Airport much quieter and only 14,000 passengers per year use the airport. As the airport is small, there are not many options when it comes to car rental. Rent a car from Sixt and you will be guaranteed to have a rental car waiting for you when you arrive.
Arad has a range of attractions including a vast number of architectural monuments and palaces. Use your car rental to travel to some of the city's finest fortresses and take a guided tour. One fortress worth visiting is Soimos Fortress. Alternatively, rent a car and take a look at the variety of architectural styles present as you travel through the city center. Note the neo-classical architectural design of the Ioan Slavici Classical Theater and the Cenad Palace, the renaissance architecture of the Administrative Palace and the eclecticism of the Neuman Palace. You can also rent a car and travel 30km east of the city to Minis Maderat Vineyard where there are plenty of hiking trails.
