  Cluj-Napoca is one of Transylvania’s most important economic and cultural centres. It has played – and still plays today – a significant role in the history of Transylvania and Romania. During the Middle Age, as recognition of its wealth and power, it was called ’Treasure City’ or ’Transylvania’s first city’.

Among the most important sights, the Main Square stands out, dominated by South-Eastern Europe’s second biggest gothic church (the ensemble of the Main Square was proposed to be included on the UNESCO World Heritage list). Other sights not to miss include the remains of medieval fortifications, the gothic house where Mátyás Hunyadi, one of Hungary’s most important kings was born, as well as several fine medieval and baroque buildings and the world-famous Botanical Garden.

    The Tailor’s Tower is the best-preserved remaining part of the medieval fortifications.

         

 The Piarists’ Church is Transylvania’s oldest and most impressive baroque church. Together with the Bánffy palace (also located in Cluj), it’s the most important example of the Transylvanian baroque architecture.
