Targu Mures Citadel
Take a stroll in Targu Mures Citadel, and breathe in centuries of craftsmanship engraved in its walls.
Like any other European city boasting two sides of history, Romania’s precious Targu Mures revolves around its centuries-old citadel. Dating back to 1492, the citadel is the city’s fortified center. Yet, it is much more than just an old relic from Romania’s past. On a clear day, the rustic walls serve as natural screens that separate its lush space from a relatively hectic urban scene. It is where local families and travelers come to take a moment’s rest and savor the refreshing air of the Romanian countryside.
Featuring its own church and museum, Targu Mures Citadel is equally satisfying for those seeking culture along with relaxation. You can visit the Fortress Church within its embracing walls. It is the oldest church in Targu Mures, standing sentinel over the citadel like a beacon of light with its elegant white lines and Gothic influences. Completed after three building periods, the church is the most picturesque feature of the citadel. Also worth visiting is the City Museum, a treasure trove of cultural artifacts waiting for the admiration of visitors. It displays myriad objects from intricately adorned ceramics to period furniture. They represent Romanian flair at its best. Outside, a sparkling moat connects the different sections of the citadel, bestowing a luminous atmosphere to its picture-perfect gardens.
