The fortress is beautifully restored. There are several entrances, a large interior area with lots of trees that really make a difference in how you perceive the place. The main parts have panels to provide context and it's really nice to see the city from...More

Large fortress that is free to enter. There were a lot of renovations when we went, but the churches and Fortress walls were worth a look.

I mean yes, you get to Tg. Mures, is nice to stop by the Fortress, but isn't as amazing as other I've seen. Being part of the city - the Fortress lost the wow factor that it probably had once in the past.

The citadel area looks great after the restoration works.You can admire the old walls and bastions and the Reformed church as well. The park nearby is also nice. Worth stopping by.

After all the great places we've visited in Romania the Targu Mures fortress felt a little too clinical and cold in terms of restoration. Maybe we were just unlucky and choose the wrong time to visit. Compared with, say the fortress at Alba Iulia, it...More

Looks like this has undergone an expensive renovation but only the Calvinist church was open, all the exhibition areas and the huge tourist information centre were locked and empty. A great shame.

They restored this fortress recently but still left a bunch of the old parts of buildings for us to see, which is a great idea. There's a couple places where you can get food, drinks, and ice cream within the fortress. There's some museums and...More

Well kept, inside the fortress is a small, green park with shady trees. Do try the icecream at one of the entrances. A lot of young people and families with small kids. There are expositions/shows from time to time. Very close to the center, at...More
