City profile

The city of Cluj-Napoca is located in the heart of Transylvania, at approximately 400m above sea level.

It is is the fourth largest city in Romania and its nearly 400,000 inhabitants engage in a wide range of activities, making Cluj-Napoca a successful business centre as well as a cultural one. Many Romanian and international banks operate in the city, thus making it the second most important financial centre in Romania.

The Transylvanian International Film Festival turns Cluj for nine days into the Romanian capital of film flashes, cameras and international stars. It features free screenings, low-priced tickets and movies that take your breath away.

Cluj-Napoca is one of the few cities in Europe that has two State Theatres and Operas, one in Romanian and one in Hungarian, a testimony to the diversity and friendliness that characterise the city's cultural atmosphere. Every season, they feature international classics as well as local directors, playwrights and actors.

Although an academic and business community, the inhabitants of Cluj-Napoca have not neglected outdoor activities. Cluj-Napoca is gradually becoming one of the top shopping destinations in Romania. There are, of course, large shopping Centres, but the true charm of Cluj-Napoca is found in the smaller stores and boutiques.
