And, they never leave without a delightful sense of fulfillment. In the historic center, medieval buildings rest on leafy streets and picturesque churches soar to the sky. Their dark-shaded Gothic-revival spires are common sights in the city’s skyline. Offering a wealth of architectural highlights, Targu Mures is a fascinating place to explore.

The juxtaposition of jaw-dropping architecture with its idyllic setting lends Targu Mures an irresistible allure. The town receives an influx of cultural travelers looking to savor its motley collection each year. Piata Trandafirilor is the unofficial center of it all. The highlight attractions gather here.

Orthodox Cathedral and Orthodox Synagogue harbor myriad treasures dating back to the Byzantine and Jewish eras.
