The effervescent central Piaţa Trandafirilor is filled with statues, open-air cafes, restaurants, a cinema and theatre, as well as Târgu Mureş' two unmissable sights: the Culture Palace and Ethnographic Museum. At its northeastern end are two contrasting churches.
Citadel & Around
A block northeast of Piaţa Trandafirilor, the huge citadel dates from 1492. It houses the Fortress Church, the oldest church in town, and City Museum, and its gardens are a soothing space to stroll.
