Târgu Mureș


Târgu Mureș is a welcoming city, given the multicultural character generated by various cultures that live in symbiosis in the territory. The origin of the cultural diversity is an ancient one, being expressed in human plan by ethnic and religious groups. The predominant populations are the Romanians and the Hungarians. The opening to the West is also proven by the languages spoken in the area, among which: Hungarian, German and English language.

Târgu Mureș Municipality is attractive in terms of landscape, being the residence of a county where nearly one third of its area is covered by forest. Another defining natural element for Târgu Mureș is the Mureș River, to which is connected the identity of the city itself, by the name it gives and by the crucial role it has played in shaping the current form of the city.
