St George killing the dragon can be seen on Mihail Kogalniceanu, in front of the renovated reformed church. It is actually quite small, however nice to visit during a walk. This is one of many attractions to see on this street, ie, reformed church, teleki palace and the Babes Bolyai University.

There usually are fairs or cultural activities, concerts or markets open around the statue. The Christmas fair is own here every year in December, there are live carol concerts and plenty of stalls from which you can sample delicious cakes, mulled wine, local cuisine. You can also buy plenty of presents if you're into handmade or local stuff.

It's just a normal statue, nothing special to appreciate about it, but if you're Asian, maybe you can take some pictures
