About Targu Mures

Official Website

Today, the city enjoys the best of both Romanian and Hungarian cultures, and excels as an important cultural and education centre.

As a modern city, Targu Mures was "born" in the second half of the 19th century, when the rail road was constructed. The founder of the modern city of Targu Mures was mayor Bernady Gyorgy (1864 - 1957), who managed to transform and place Targu Mures alongside Transylvania's most beautiful modern cities.

The Fortress Church, which is the oldest church in town, is one of Targu Mures' most significant landmarks, along with the Cultural Palace, built between 1911 and 1913, Apollo Palace, dating since the 1800s, and Palffy House, built around 1640, which reflects an evolutionary stage that surpasses typical Renaissance architectural elements such as those of the oldest buildings of Targu Mures, the Kopeczi and Nagy Szabo houses.

Targu Mures also boasts great museums, such as the Art Museum, Ethnographic and Folk Art Museum, or the History Museum, as well as 2 fabulous art galleries - "Ion Vlasiu" Painting Gallery and "Nagy Imre" Painting Gallery.

As a "bonus", in addition to the attractions found within Tragu Mures, visitors can also choose to take pleasant day trips to the appealing nearby destinations, such as Reghin, situated about 19 miles north of Tragu Mures, dating back to 1218, when the Saxons built a settlement on the ruins of a Dacian fortress, Turda, which is an important salt-mining town, situated approximately 48 miles west of the city, or Jidvei Winery, which is 32 miles west of Targu Mures, where they can enjoy wine tasting at the 16th century Bethlen Castle in Cetatea de Balta, located between Tarnaveni and Blaj.

In conclusion, Targu Mures is a wonderful city to visit, with plenty to offer visitors, in order to provide them a pleasant, exciting and memorable stay!
