A walk through Cluj-Napoca city center

If you are in Cluj-Napoca and the weather is fine, you should spend some time walking and enjoying the atmosphere of the city.

I always enjoy a walk in the city center (in any season). A good place to start is Museum's Square. Continue with Casa Matei Corvin, then go to Unirii Square. You will see the statue of Matei Corvin and St. Michael Catholic Cathedral. From there, go to Kogalniceanu Str. also known as Wolves alley. At the end of the street you will see the Reformed Church and Tailors' Tower, remains of medieval Cluj. Close to the tower, in front of the Orthodox Cathedral and National Theatre, you can enjoy the musical fountain, a quite new addition to our city center.  Then you can rest or have a drink on Eroilor street.

Some years ago I particularly enjoyed the fragrant linden trees on Eroilor street, in summer. Those old trees are gone now, but there are many left on Wolves alley.

Have a nice walk!


  1. I think it would be useful to put a map with English names of the streets and visitors attractions, otherwise it might be confusing for foreign tourists.

  2. That's the map provided by Google. Some street names are bilingual, if you take a closer look.
