The most interesting area of town surrounds the park, Parcul Elisabeta. Just north is Piața Libertății, featuring an impressive equestrian statue of Mihai Viteazul (Michael the Brave). On the park's western flank, Stra Gábor Áron, you'll see a plaque showing the building where Gábor Áron and other local revolutionaries planned their armed resistance against Austrian rule (1848–9).

Strolling east from the park along Str Gróf Mikó Imre, after about 500m you can admire the outside of the Fortificată Reformată Church. Its cemetery contains striking examples of traditional Székely wooden crosses and graveposts.
