TARGU-JIU – The town appears mentioned in historical document since 1406 during the reign of Mircea the Older. Its main attraction is quite recent and a complex of five structures made by Constantin Brancuşi (1876-1956). Three of them were placed in the Public Garden: The Kiss Gate (Poarta Sărutului) – similar to a triumph arch with traditional elements; Chairs Alley – two lines of chairs that lead to the Kiss Gate; The Silence Table (Masa tăcerii) – 12 hourglass shaped chairs around a table. The other 2 sculptures are placed in Tudor Vladimirescu Park: The Endless Column is a 30 meter high succession of rhomboidal elements, the most famous of his sculptures, and the Festive Table that has only 5 chairs.
