About Cluj-Napoca & Romania
Cluj-Napoca, the second major city in Romania after the national capital Bucharest, is situated in the north-western part of the country, in the region of Transylvania. The city of Cluj (Kolozsvár in Hungarian, Klausenburg in German) is a multicultural city with a diverse cultural and religious life. A vibrant and pleasant city today, with reasonably priced accommodation and dining in the center area – within 5-15 minutes’ walk from the “Babeş-Bolyai” University central building –, a wonderful historical legacy and a great atmosphere, Cluj-Napoca also has a diverse and growing cultural scene, with cultural life exhibited in a number of fields, including the visual arts, performing arts and nightlife. It is certainly a great experience for those who want to see urban Transylvanian life at its best as well as a base for those wanting to explore its countryside surroundings, the wild scenic beauty of its Carpathian landscape, the Apuseni Mountains, or the traditional rural area in central and south Transylvania or in the historical region of Maramureș.
