Historical information about the square:
The formation of the squre began in the 17th century and was associated with the construction
of the Jesuit College at that site. In the foundation charter of the College dated July 31, 1640,
issued by Janos Druget, it was stated that to accommodate buildings for the future college, school and church,
the ktitor at his own expense shall relocate city residents from there and donate
the College students his garden, which was situated opposite the College (where the squre with park is planned to be arranged).
In the first half of the XX century. this area belonged to the Basilian sisters monastery until its violent
liquidation in 1948.
