Thalia Hall was built in 1787 by Martin Hochmeister, the initiator of the first bookstore in the country, the construction is a real architectural gem, having two balconies and a lodge for the governor of Transylvania. Due to the lack of space in the city center, Hochmeister decided to built The Thick Tower, in the protection ring of the city.

In ancient greek, Thalia means “the cheerful, the blooming”.
