What to expect

Discover Cluj’s old history and traditions, the interesting architecture and culture and get a glimpse of this modern Transylvanian city on a 2-hour walking tour with an English-speaking guide.

Start the tour next to the old Benedictine monastery and explore the birth houses of Mathias Corvinus (king of Hungary) and Stephan Bocskai (ruler of Transylvania and a great promoter of the religious reformation), the old market square and the many guilds and craftsmen houses.

Next, visit the city’s main square, with some of its most important monuments: the catholic church of St. Michael (the second largest Gothic building between Vienna and Istanbul), the statue of Mathias Corvinus, the unique mirror street (where all houses were built symmetrically on both sides of the street) and the majestic Baroque palace of the Bannfy family.

Walk to the headquarters of the Babeş-Bolyai University, first established in the 16th century. Today it is one of Europe’s largest multicultural universities, with almost 60,000 students. Crossing through the university, you'll reach the former Franciscan monastery, famous both for its architecture and its almost perfect acoustics.

Your tour will end with a visit to the former lumberjack market which used to be a gathering place of the Romanian community. On the other side of the square, discover the Orthodox cathedral, built after the First World War in neo-Byzantine and neo-Romanian style.
