When is The Perfect Time to Visit?

A good question to ask and the answer lies closely related to what you’re planning on doing.

We strongly suggest avoiding February as it is statistically the coldest month where showing is quite frequent.

What to do When Visiting Cluj Napoca?

1.    Exploring the Historical Center

By far the best place to visit is Cluj Napoca’s historical center located in the center of the city. The center is very compact and can be explored all by foot, meaning you don’t need to pay any extra fees on transportation. Here you can find historical buildings such as the Matthias Corvinus House, which is one of the oldest buildings of the city dating back to the 15th century. You can follow up with a visit to the impressive church of Saint Michael, which is an impressive Gothic architectural building, one of its kind in the whole of Transylvania. Next up should be a stroll down Heroes Avenue down the Union Square and the Avram Iancu Square. And you can end your visit with the impressive Orthodox Cathedral, which was built between 1920 and 1930 and serves as the biggest religious building in the whole Transylvanian region. If you’re planning on traveling via plane to Cluj, we recommend using the airport transfer that will get to your accommodations from the airport and any part of the center of the city, as well as, directly taking you to the Historical Center.

 

2.    Botanical Garden

Cluj Napoca is the home to a magnificent botanical garden, which displays lively plants, trees, and flowers. The garden covers 14 hectares and houses over 10.000 different plants from different species from all over the world. The garden is famously divided into seven sectors: ornamental, systematic, economic, phytogeographic, greenhouse complex’s, and specialized sectors for people with sight problems.
