The Glory to the Romanian Soldier Monument

On the north side of Avram Iancu Square, parallel to the altar of the Orthodox Metropolitan Cathedral, the Glory of the Romanian Soldier monument was built in 1996. The work of sculptor Radu Aftene marks the role played by the Romanian army in the liberation of Transylvania in the autumn of 1944. The bronze tank dedicated to USSR soldiers on the site of the monument was moved to a pedestal in the Heroes’ Cemetery, near the graves of Soviet soldiers.
