Moments to expect
Museum Square - heart of the city!
The Museum Square is the oldest part of medieval Cluj or Clausenburg as it was once known. Today, it's a cozy pedestrian area with cobbled streets, very old buildings and full of bars and cool hangout places for the youngsters of city. This will be our starting point.
Union Square - city centre
Cluj city centre is impressive because it's such a mix of different architectural styles: the monumental Gothic St. Michael Church, the Art Nouveau Continental Hotel or the bourgeois houses you can see all around. It's also the place where most of city life happens, major events, festivities, protests or revolutions. From here we walk towards the university and the Reformed cathedral on the newly refurbised cobbled streets.
Avram Iancu Square
At the end of our walk we reach the Austrian-inspired National Theatre and Opera House, the New-Byzantine Orthodox cathedral and some impressive aristocratic homes built as a sign of power and pride by Romanian, Hungarian and Austrian families.

Reviews from travellers
Florian was a very knowledgeable guide and we enjoyed our time with him. This Romanian Friend tour is very well priced, particularly compared to other companies. We learned a lot about the history of the region and Cluj.
Florin is a great guide, giving us so much interesting information and anecdotes relating to various buildings statues, churches and sites around the city. We enjoyed his company and recommend this tour to anyone visiting Cluj in the future.
We had day trip with Florin, where we visited the Turda Salt Mine in the morning. In the afternoon we returned to Cluj where he told us about the history and culture of Cluj and Transylvania. It was a very interesting and enjoyable day for us as a family. The Salt Mine is realy impressive. Florin is a friendly young man and he has a profound knowledge about his country. During the afternoon he told us so much interesting and profound information about Cluj and it's exciting history and people. I can warmly recommend the Romanian Friend offerings.
