What to Expect
Cluj is the city with the largest botanical garden in Southern Europe and the third largest in the world. Discover the Catholic Dome St. Michael - the only Catholic church in Europe where the altar isn’t situated directly in the east (where the sun rises in the autumn equinox), but where sun rises on November 8, St. Michael’s day (the feast of Holy Archangels Michael and Gabriel).
The first thing to see on our tour are the ruins of the old Roman camp. Next discover the old Benedictine monastery, the square of the history museum and you will see the house of the famous Hungarian king, Matei Corvin. The Catholic Church St. Michael, a milestone in Cluj (the second largest Gothic church in Transylvania) is an absolute must on our program. Bannfy Palace, Continental Hotel, “old Town Hall ” and the mirror street complete the city’s urban architecture. The headquarters of the Babes Bolyai University is proof of the cities student tradition, Cluj being the host of more than one hundred thousand students every year.
Our tour ends with the visit of the Orthodox Cathedral and of the National Theater, built in the former lamberjack market.
