"Avram Iancu" Targu-Mures Things to Do Tip by yumyum

Targu-Mures Things to Do: 30 reviews and 88 photos

On the first picture you see a monument to Avram Iancu on Piata Trandafirilor. Avram Iancu was a leading figure from Transylvania in the revolution against the Hungarians. Those fights eventually led to the joining of Transylvania to Romania.

Targu Mures like other cities have a big Hungarian minority. In Targu Mures you will notice that a lot of things are written in Hungarian and street names have both languages.

There is also a street calles Avram Iancu and I suggest you walk along it from along the fortress all the way to the cemetery where the stone and the wooden churches are located. Along the way you will notice the monument on picture no. 2 (I couldn't see the name on it) and you will pass the memorial house of Avram Iancu which can be visited (picture no. 3-5). The museum is at no. 23.

The opening times are:
Tuesday 11-17
Wednesday 11-19
Thursday 11-17
