What to see in Cluj Napoca, Romania
I arrived in Cluj-Napoca, considered the capital of Transylvania and Romania’s second largest city, already in spring. But for everyone’s surprise, spring was greeted by a heavy snowfall in most of Europe.
The fresh snow made the city look even more appealing, with parks and rooftops as white as you can imagine.

The city has around 400,000 inhabitants, of which 80,000 are students from all over Romania and Moldova. For that reason, there’s a very exciting cultural scene, as well as good bars, cafes and night life.

Architecturally Cluj, as it is commonly known, has buildings in a variety of styles, reflecting the cosmopolitan heritage of the city, which was also part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire.

My stay in the city was short and sweet, making me hope for a return to better explore it and the historical region of Transylvania. Needless to say, all my friends were telling me to be careful with some famous Count from the region… 🙂
