Cluj-Napoca Travel Guide: 264 reviews and 756 photos
In May 2008 we started our trip through Northern Romania and Southern Ukraine in Cluj-Napoca, where we stayed two nights. In April 2012 our long weekend trip through Transylvania ended with one night in Cluj-Napoca.
The multicultural town has more than 300.000 inhabitants and is known as Klausenburg to the Germans and Kolozsvar to the Hungarians.
The historic town centre is home to several churches of different denominations, with the Roman-Catholic Saint Michael Church and the Orthodox Cathedral being the dominant ones.
Due to its location on important trade routes, Cluj-Napoca nowadays attracts again businesses from all over Europe. Not only the largest university of Romania can be found here, but also quite a few other state and private educational institutions.
“Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realise they were the big things.”
