About Cluj

Cluj-Napoca (Kolozsvár in Hungarian or Klausenburg in German) is situated in the historical region of Transylvania and it's the fourth largest city in Romania with a population of approximately 400,000 (larger when university students live here, from October to June).
In Roman times, Napoca was a provincial capital of Dacia. Later, in the middle ages the city of Cluj was established (you can still see the medieval wall, church and tower). Since modern times Cluj-Napoca is a well known Romanian university and cultural center.
