The first documentary attestation of the place was made in 1332. The geographical location of the city was favourable for its development. In the 16th century, Târgu Mureș was a real commercial and craft production center. The period of the Habsburg occupation (late seventeenth century) saw, among other things, the construction of many places of worship in the Baroque style, noble houses, the barracks in the Citadel and beyond.
Subsequently, the period of implementation of the capitalist economy followed, bringing the city’s modernisation and the establishment of the food, construction and wood processing industry. The interwar period was one of revolutionary and democratic activity. The city has gone through many trials over time, but, in the end, it managed to become a Romanian cultural and economic centre worth mentioning.
