Photographer's Note

Trgu Mureș (or Trgu Mureș in ancient Romanian) is a city in the department of Mures, located within the Transylvania region, with the eastern Carpathians and the Mures River to the east.

Settlement since the Neolithic, Bronze Age and much later Dacian and Roman colony, the mineral deposits of salt, iron and natural gas, in addition to its flourishing agriculture, have fostered its growth and constant natural use.

Trgu Mureș reflects the traits of Hungarian influence over many centuries, especially in the architecture and numerous traditions preserved with great fidelity. Marosvsrhely is the Hungarian name that the city had, and Neumarkt am Mieresch the German, which reflects, like the word Trgu Mureş (Mures market), the main economic activity and commercial character of the city.

In fact, the 19th century was the capital for urban planning as important transformations were carried out that endowed the city with the two cathedrals that we see today, the Orthodox and the Catholic.

Also in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, the city was enriched by magnificent buildings for private use.

Asentamiento ya desde el neoltico, edad de bronce y mucho despus dacio y colonia romana, los yacimientos minerales de sal, hierro y gas natural, adems de su floreciente agricultura, han fomentado su crecimiento y aprovechamiento natural constante.

Marosvsrhely es el nombre hngaro que tuvo la ciudad, y Neumarkt am Mieresch el alemn, lo que refleja igual que el vocablo Trgu Mureş (mercado de Mures), la principal actividad econmica y carcter comercial de la ciudad.

De hecho, el siglo XIX fue capital para el urbanismo ya que se llevaron a cabo importantes transformaciones que dotaron a la ciudad de las dos catedrales que vemos hoy en da, la ortodoxa y la catlica.

Igualmente el final del siglo XIX y principios del XX, la ciudad se vio enriquecida por magnificos edificios para el uso privado.
