    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.

I was in Cluj Napoca for 3 days with a friend who wanted to discover interesting things about Cluj. The guide we had was very friendly and helped us to discover the city. I must admit that, although I have been in Cluj once before, it was a different experience now that we had a guide. I believe that a guide is the best choice whenever you want to explore a city beyond what everyone can see at the first sight. Rolandia was a good choice because provided us with a nice schedule, interesting places to visit and a well-prepared guide (from our point of view).

I was checked in at Belvedere Hotel and I traveled by plane from Iasi to Cluj. Rolandia Travel was all in charge of the flight, the accommodation and various tips and information regarding touristic attractions of the city. They were very helpful and always available for any unforeseen problem I encountered.
