The former summer residence of Samuel von Brukenthal has awakened from its slumber in 2011. For nearly a decade hardly anyone was interested in the historic treasure. The palace as well as the park and its buildings belong to the most important monuments from the time of the Transylvanian Baroque. In Southern Transylvania, it is indeed the only surviving baroque ensemble at all.

The new owners of the palace strive to revive the former charm of the ensemble – by following the ideas and concepts of Brukenthal, who had created in Avrig from 1756 a gem in which he found recovery, but that he also used for horticultural purposes and as a botanical garden.
