City in Romania on list of “stylish cities” in the New East

The list encompasses the 16 “chicest, most liveable cities in the New East to visit now” as they are “fast becoming essential destinations for the modern traveler.” The selected cities stand out with their architecture, dynamic nightlife or environmental projects, says Romania-Insider.com.

In the case of Cluj-Napoca, it was the art scene, its startup hub status, and bohemian cafe culture that caught the attention of the list’s editors.

“Meandering through backstreets, quaint Baroque architecture hides a plethora of subterranean bars, while former factories and old palaces serve as art residencies for the country’s best new talent. As well as being a startup hub, Cluj is also the birthplace of Transylvania’s first underground electro nightclub, Club Midi, which has become the country’s biggest and best since launching in 2007,” the guide explains.

Cluj-Napoca is a destination for film fans as the country’s largest feature film festival, Transylvania International Film Festival – TIFF, has been taking place there since 2002. The city also hosts the largest electronic music festival in the country, Untold. Last year, the festival attracted more than 300,000 people to the city, with 10% of visitors being foreigners.

Cluj-Napoca features on the list alongside Belgrade, Budapest, Dubrovnik, Kiev, Ljubljana, Moscow, Mostar, Odessa, Split, St. Petersburg, Tallinn, Tbilisi, Varna, Zadar and Zagreb.
