- The County Council - The Perfecture is an imposing building dating back to 1905-1907. It was designed as city hall by Jakab Dezso and Komor Marceli in the style of the first period of secession. The tower is 60 meters high. Today it houses the perfecture and the Mures County council. In the garden in front of the building you will find a "she wolf" monument like in a lot of Romanian cities.

- The Culture Palace - Located on the corner of Piata Trandafirilor and George Enescu street you cannot miss it. The shiny roof with different coloured tiles as well as the other decorations on the facade make it special. Built between 1911 and 1913 it was influenced by the Hungarian and the Viennese Secession.

- Former Franciscan Monastery - There was not only a tower but a monastery and a church, both monastery and church were demolished in 1972. From 1735 until 1972 the Franciscans educated young people in this spot. The Franciscan order of Friars minor already lived in the fortress from the 13th to the 16th century. In 1972 they moved to the outskirts of the town.

- The Targu Mures Medieval Fortress - The first fortress was built in the 15th century and was owned by the voivode of Transylvania. The current fortress dates back to 1602/1952. When we visited a big area seemed to be under reconstruction but we were able to enter the church in one part.
