"Cluj-Napoca" Top 5 Page for this destination Cluj-Napoca by Aitana

Cluj-Napoca Travel Guide: 286 reviews and 800 photos

We stayed at Cluj-Napoca during the winter, when days are short and it is cold. We were very lucky: we were invited by a friend. She offered us her flat. She joined us and showed us her city, being a perfect cicerone. She and her father also organised an excursion to the countryside. Most of our experience at Cluj would have been impossible without her.

My impressions:
Nice city centre. Nice buildings, a bit neglected though.
Several public universities, lots of students.
Many churches, different worships.
Too many wires everywhere. Is it possible to take a picture without them?
Not many restaurants. The traditional one we chose was too expensive.

Saint Nicholas was arriving to bring gifts for children during our stay.
Presidential elections were celebrated on the same day.

The city is interesting, but also the mountains around and other towns in Transilvania are worth a visit.

    Lograste entender algunas palabras del idioma alla? Se ve bonita, la mezcla de ungaro, aleman y otros estilos

      Absolutamente nada! Bueno, en el idioma escrito se entiende algo porque es lengua romance, pero cuando hablaban, nada! Me gustó mucho, me gustaría volver pero con buen tiempo.

    Looks like an interesting place to spend a vacation especially the Botanical Garden, Central Park and the Citadel with lots of fine churches and cathedral too. Thanks for your virtual tour. ~ho & pang

    Carmen, fabulous new page with brilliant photos of this Romanian gem. In 2008 we stayed a few days in Cluj-Napoca and really enjoyed it.

    Everywhere in Europe, even in a far off place like this, there seems to be a theater by the Austrian architects Fellner and Helmer. They built 48 theaters altogether, and had a good reputation for keeping to budget and abiding by safety codes.
