Targu-Mures Travel Guide: 51 reviews and 216 photos

We flew into Targu Mures one mid afternoon for our Easter trip and decided to stay one night before continuing to Sighisoara. We were glad to do a bit of sightseeing and the town turned out to be more interesting than anticipated. We missed a few sights though as in the end it would have been better to have a full day to explore.

    an interesting place, that I have often heared of and they have lots of great churches, I think my favorite would be the small wooden orthodox church !

    Too bad they are still smoking in restaurants. Now when we are used to non-smoking meals the cigarett smoke ca really ruin a good meal. There seem to be many nice looking churches in Targu-Mures. And as Don and Sarah, I have never heard of Brancovenesc architecture before.

    How pleased you must be that you found the time to look around here! I love the old wooden church - it's great you met that man and could see inside (although maybe he hangs around all the time for that purpose!) I gather that the she-wolf statues are of the Romulus and Remus legend? I hadn't thought especially of that connection till seeing your photos. And you are not the only one who had not heard of Brancovenesc architecture - it's a new one on me as well as on you and Don!

    Good transpport tips especially, and your hotel looks great, but I would find it hard to get used again to people smoking in the restaurants :-(

    Interesting tips! I must admit that I have never heard of the Brancovenesc style of architecture before, much less the Neo-Brancovenesc style. Maybe the theater and the Palace of Culture were also built in the Neo-Brancovenesc style? They do look somewhat similar.

    I knew almost nothing about this city. Now know it has a lot of Orthodox churches (yes, Romania is an Orthodox country in main). Loved the statue of the Lupa Capitolina on your intro photo! All the best wishes from Moscow on the Victory Day!
