TÂRGU MUREŞ – The town was mentioned for the first time in Holly-sea registers in 1332 as Novum Forum Siculorum (New Secklers' Town). In 1405, Sigismund of Luxembourg, king of Hungary granted the right of organizing fairs in the town. In 1482, during the reign of Matei Corvin, the town became royal town. The oldest building in town and the most valuable, the fortress, is in fact a castle fortress five star shaped with three entrances. A part of this was destroyed by the Turks and in second stage (finished in 1650) there were added a new 900 meters long wall and 87 bulwarks, all build by the craftsmen guilds. In the city you can find a very big diversity of churches: roman-catholic, Lutheran, evangelic, Unitarian, orthodox, Greek-catholic and mosaic. The city had a new flourishing period at the beginning of the 20th century when some of the most important buildings of the town appeared.
