Aren't near Ploiesti 2 flak 88 in a small yard? I can find the exact location.
Also, on gate, at the entrance on Buzau Militay Cemetery are 2 small canons/mortars.

Buzau pieces.

Please do post pictures, and the location for the ones in Sebes if you can (like park name, street)

ocoleanui: added to the list, thanks

Ferdinand and dragos, are you sure those are real guns and not sculptures?
They look very disproportionate, couldn't find a real one looking like that.

---------------------------
After more updates, I counted a bit. The most numerous guns are
83 Zis-3 (76mm),
82 Zis-2 (57mm)
and 12 Krupp 75mm model 1880 upgraded with shield

When I started this list, I never imagined there were so many

In Puchenii Mari, on the right side going to Ploiesti (DN1), is a small monument with two cannons with shield. May be Krupp.

They belong to the local authorities, and were transfered from Army ownership at no cost.
However the local authorities have to pay for their "demilitarization" (removal of the firing pin, various cuts and welds that make it useless; which are performed by the military before handover) and for transport.

Found a WW1 gun in Stoenesti, jud. Arges.
Looks like a Gruson 120mm howitzer model 1888.
I would really appreciate if somebody could provide better photos
