The notion of public lighting dates from the end of the Middle Ages, but it is found especially since the modern era. However, it was not easy to reach what exists today. An interesting fact in the history of public lighting is that in May 1857, Bucharest, (Romania’s capital) became the first city in the world whose public lighting was made with lamp oil, and on November 12, 1884, Timisoara, another city in Romania, became the first city in Europe to have a fully electric lighting system.
