Underwhelmed visiting here. Although a lovely sunny winter day and loads in the square eating and drinking the place felt a bit run down. 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

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

The museum spuare is located at the northern part of the center. You can find it on any map, however I almost missed. The square is packed with outside seating of all the restaurant and dominated by large trees in the middle. While this is very nice for sitting outside it is a bid hindering to enjoy the architecture surrounding... More

It's located in the center of Cluj and it's a good area where you can spend some time with friends or family. There are many restaurants and terraces from which to choose and also feel the atmosphere of the old town. Worth stopping by.

The area is mostly known for the bars and restaurants and some of them offer live concerts nights as well. People always go there for food and drinks and as a tourist, you will always find souvenirs around there too. It's a nice place to catch the local atmosphere so you should check it out.
