Cluj-Napoca Travel Guide: 264 reviews and 756 photos

An old and nice city

Cluj's population is about 350 000. In fact there are living 45 000 stuents of "Babes-Bolyai" University and some other institutions. The buildings show that this place is intended to be " a small Vienna". You can see many churches , the older of which is the gothic cathedral "St. Michael" ( I know two dates when it was finished- 1487 and 1528, I suppose the latter is right). The river, flawing in the city, is small and unimportant.

Austro-Hungarian empire

The city was in Austro-Hungarian empire until 20. century and its architecture style have many similarities with Vienna's buildings.
