Maxitaxis to Sighisoara

by kbyrne

We are arriving in Targu Mures airport at 14.40. Need to get to Sighisoara. Regular Buses are at 15.15 or 17.15. Think its a bit optimistic to hope to get the 15.15 but don't really want to wait that long for the 17.15.

Are there any maxitaxis at around the right time (getting taxi from airport to bus station) and about how much would the fare be to Sighisoara? Also, do they take about the same time (1 hour)?

Thanks
Karen

Hi

the "bus" schedule you mention are acualy a MAXI TAXI
you can know that if you put the mouse on the car sign.
and all on the rute targ' - sighi' for now are MICROBUZ [maxi taxi].
you have to know that not all the schedule are mention on the net
so I am almost shure that there is something between 15:15-17:15.

the cost as I remember that was mention in the past on autogari.ro are around 10 lei for person at one way.

any way usuly in romania there is more maxi taxi then bus [autocar]
and the maxi' are faster .

about the time well it's depend of tipe of the bus (-:

The best thing to do is to go to the Busstation (AUTOGARA). There you could get more information.
There are 2 main Busstations in the City: Autogara Siletina and Autogara Transport Local. From these two busstations trips to Sighisoara usually leave every hour or so.

"departament building"

Targu Mures ( Hungarian :Marosvásárhely, also known as (Székely-)Vásárhely; German: Neumarkt am Mieresch) is a city in Mureş county, Transylvania, Romania.
According to the results of the last census of 2002, the municipality of Târgu Mureş has 150,041 inhabitants.
* Romanians – 75,533 (50.34%)
* Hungarians – 70,110 (46.73%)
* Roma – 3,660 (2.43%)
* Germans – 304 (0.20%)
* other ethnic groups – 434 (>0.01%)
This is the first census to show Hungarians in a minority, following decades of migration of Romanians into the city.

"culture palace"

The city was first documented in 1332 in the papal registry under the name Novum Forum Siculorum.
In 1405 the King of Hungary Sigismund of Luxembourg granted the city of Târgu Mureş (by then named Székelyvásárhely, see Székely) the right to organize fairs and in 1482 the King Matthias Corvinus declared the city a royal settlement. It became a municipality in 1616, changing its name to Marosvásárhely, the Romanian equivalent of which is Târgu Mureş (Târg and Vásár mean "Market" in Romanian and Hungarian respectively).
In 1754 Târgu Mureş became home to the supreme court of justice of the Principality of Transylvania which provided a major boost to the city's social and economic life.

"greek-catholic church"

Târgu Mureş offers some remarkable places to visit such as the Cultural Palace, the medieval fortress, the National Theatre, the Reformate Church, the Roman Catholic Church, the Greek Catholic Church and the Orthodox Cathedral. The centre of the city is one of the most elegant in Romania.

Targu Mures-Marosvarashely-Neumarkt

by roomania

Targu Mures is situated in the heart of Transylvania in picturesque surroundings, one hour north of Sighisoara. The river Mures flows through the city and its surrounding hills are covered in ash and oak forests. Romanians and Hungarians both make up the population of 163,270 inhabitants. The area of Mures county is often refered to as the land of Szekely. After the invasion of the Tartars during the 13th century, it became the market for the Szekely's who settled the area. The city was first documented in Papal letters dated 1323 as Szekelyvarashely and the Latin, 'Novum Forum Sicolorum'.

The year 1616, the city was chartered as a royal town by the Duke of Transylvania establishing it as an independent royal town; hereafter referred to as Targu Mures, in Romanian, Marosvasarhely, in Hungarian, and Neumarkt am Mieresch in German, which translate as "Market on the Mures".

The City of Targu Mures centers around Piata Trandafirilor, the "Rose Market". At the northern end of the piata lies the magnificent Orthodox Cathedral. The Cathedral had its southern facade restored and until recently was obscured by scaffolding. However, having completed restoration and with the scaffolding removed it reveals a beautiful copper edifice that looks over the piata and the statue of Avram Iancu.

In 1602 a fortification was built north of the present city center, which houses the distinguished Hungarian Reformed church, was built in pentagonal layout comprises seven bastions, of which five continue to bear the guild's name that by tradition, supported and defended them.

As with all citadels of the time, it was constructed to house the town's inhabitants during times of war. Today, the citadel and church remain, however, townspeople congregate to celebrate more joyous occasions such as the annual beer and wine festivals held in June and October respectively.
