Cristuru Secuiesc

The town got its name after its church, which was erected in honor of the Holy Cross. At the same time, the name of the town also carries reference to a hill that rises above, Jesus Caller and its cross.

”Back in the days of the battles of the Holy War, in the valley of the Gagy stream, next to the river Big Küküllő, a few knights took roots. First they only used the place for resting, then slowly they built some houses, and before long a settlement was founded.”
