Veni Vidi Hunting in Cluj-Napoca

My friend Carmen and I teamed up for a Treasure Hunt competition during Colours of Cluj Festival. It took less than 5 minutes to choose a name for the team, MarioSisters - a silly one have to admit but it was a democratic vote, and to subscribe.

15 teams lined up and a volunteer was assigned for each team. We had to reach 7 check points, answer quizzes about each point, take pictures with specific objects and colours in case of penalty. The volunteer read a short story about the check point, quizzed us about the previous one, took pictures of us and handed the colored bracelets.

Itinerary started in the city centre at Casa Tiff, on Universitatii Street, and winded up in the same place. We strolled through the streets paying particular attention to iconic buildings and various architectural elements.
First clue took us to the Astronomical Observatory, where we were penalized for the wrong answer to the quiz and had to take a picture with something green. Easy-peasy-lemon-squeezy!

After we headed to the  house with the twisted chimney (a first-timer) on Motilor Street. We challenge you to find it!
Then we went to Hintz House - oldest pharmacy in our city, Museum of Pharmacy nowadays, in Unirii Square. Next clues took us to the 4-storey block of flats with only one balcony near Florin Piersic Cinema, the clock always striking 12:07 on top of the fruits-vegetables-cheese market, the Reformed Church on Kogalniceanu Street and Arta Cinema.

8 kilometers after and 111 minutes later we arrived back at Casa Tiff and the team was ranked fourth.
Of course we had a fight because of this!!! Kidding, we had more fun after the competition while walking downtown.
