One of the most beautiful cities in Romania, Cluj Napoca is the city that is also called “the heart of Transylvania”. With a population of over 330,000 people, it is the second most populated city in the country, after the capital city, Bucharest. Cluj means “close by” in Latin language and relates to the hills around the city, from where people can enjoy a spectacular view over the lights of the city.

The city is surrounded by the Carpathian Mountains, which is why it is very popular for outdoor activities, offering the most beautiful views, hiking, just minutes from downtown.
