Day 1 : Itinerary



Your guide will pick you up from the hotel and you will start your tour in the city of arts, reminiscent of the Roman colony that settled in the second century A.D. Most of the attraction are clustered around the Union Square displaying a Baroque style architecture. Our first visit will be at the Cathedral of St. Michael with its amazing spire towering 262 feet high and dominating the whole market.

Next, we will visit the Banffy Palace, host of the National Art Museum and walk on the one of a kind Mirror Street where the buildings situated on the right are the reflection of the ones on the left side. We will reach the Orthodox Metropolitan Cathedral placed in the middle of the square. Afterward, you will have the opportunity to observe the beautiful elements that characterize the National Theatre.

For the end of the tour, we will take a relaxing walk in the Botanical Garden end enjoy a breath of fresh air not far from the city center.

Main attractions

Gothic Cathedral of St. Michael – This Catholic cathedral is the second largest in Transylvania. It’s the most representative landmark of the city and it’s situated in the old town in the center of Cluj. The inside of the church is also designed in a Gothic style bringing you back to the 14th century. You can also admire beautiful medieval frescoes inside the cathedral.

Banffy Palace – National Art Museum – A Gothic style building, the palace belonged to the noble Banffy family and nowadays it hosts an art gallery inside the edifice’s walls. In time, the building had many functions: from a protocol residence, a nationally-known casino, an apartment building, establishment for industrial companies to a cinema.

Mirror Street – Like its name says, this street is identical on both sides: you can see that the buildings from the left are the same as the buildings on the right. This place is unique in Europe and it is situated right in the city center. It is a very fun place to take pictures!
