This is the life...?
      It was built between 1797-1801 following the design of the Viennese architect Ignatz Schlaff and under the personal advice of count Teleki Samuel ( at that date he was Chancellor of Transylvania). The library is one of the most beautiful building of the ‘old town’. 
Despite its execution in several stages, it impresses both with its balanced form and  sober harmony, as well as through its single style. The Library Hall is two story high, 21.65X12.40 m. The basic fund of the library consists of the 40.000 volumes (amongst which 66 incunabula and many rare works and editions) from the count’s personal collection. In 1955 the funds of the former Reformed College had been integrated here (approx. 90.000 volumes) as well as the manuscripts and personal belongings of two genius mathematicians born in Targu Mures - Bolyai Farkas and Bolyai Janos – which were grouped in the “Bolyai” memorial museum.
