If you are in Targu Jiu you must go and visit one of the most incredible work of art from Brancusi. In the middle of a beautiful park very close to table of silence.

If you pass in this gate with someone by your side, you should kiss him/ her, otherwise, you will both bring bad luck into your romantic lives! Jokes apart, interesting park, with very interesting sculptures and buildings made by Constantin Brâncuși

Beautiful art work. The perfect place for a romantic walk in the Memorial Park of Brâncuşi. You can also visit the Table of Silence and take a walk along Jiu river.
