Cluj-Napoca

Burgeoning art and bohemian cafes

Cluj is one of the major cultural centers of Romania, being the capital of Transylvania. In Cluj, there are several universities, big companies from all of the world can be found in Cluj, because  it has a well-educated, multilingual workforce. With 306,009 inhabitants live within the city limits, is the second most populous city in Romania and the seat of Cluj County.

Bohemian cafes, music festivals and vigorous nightlife are the soul of Cluj-Napoca, Romania's second-largest city. With increasing flight links to European cities, Cluj is welcoming more and more travellers, who usually shoot off to the Apuseni Mountains, Maramureş or more popular towns in southern Transylvania. But once arrived, first-time visitors inevitably lament their failure to allow enough time in Cluj.

Dip into galleries and gardens. And allow at least one lazy morning to recover from Cluj’s fiery nightlife.
