Târgu Secuiesc (Kézdivásárhely)

A small picturesque city in the northeast of Covasna County, Târgu Secuiesc ("Székely market") dates from the early 15th century. The hometown of Hungarian revolutionary Áron Gábor, it served as a base for resistance and defense against Austria in 1848-49. Largely left alone under communism, it has retained most of its attractive 19th-century architecture (the homogeneity of which is due to a large fire that consumed the city in 1834).
