Great in the summer.

Great place to sit outside in the summer and enjoy a lemonade or a good meal. There are many restaurants and cafes in the area.

The first one is around Mathias statue square....but here is a lot of action going on.... I prefer this place especially in the summer. History nerds can admire the Franciscan Church and the Obelisk depicting the visit of Francisc 2 Austro-Hungarian emperor to Cluj in XIX century.

The name museum square doesn't really reflect the atmosphere. The square have s lot of restaurants, coffeehouses and other places to feel relax. There are no car traffic so it's calmed and peaceful.

Yes old is not new or modern but it felt so unremarkable and not well maintained. The cobbled stones and architecture were ok but nothing to make me feel this was some ancient idyll in an... More

Have you seen a cannonball stuck in a wall since the Ottoman Empire? See it closely (and even touch if you like) at Museum Square Thanks for a tip to our awesome tour guide from Destination Transylvania.)

Nice square for a walk and short relax with a coffee or vine in center of Cluj. They should renovate some buildings though

Nice to enjoy the historic buildings. Best to wear good shoes, as the cobblestones can be a bit cumbersome.
