  • We visited on the first day of school festival, so the square was packed with people. The church was undergoing renovations and with the festival, we were not able to go inside, but it is beautiful...  more »
  • The moment you step into the centre of Cluj-Napoca you find this extremely impressive structure. St Michael's is surely grand. Our misfortune was it was closed for renovations so we could not enter...  more »

  • Church is renovated so you cannot go inside. Strange situation for such a unique place in Club Napoca.
  • One of the most important landmarks of Cluj and my favourite spot for a peaceful moment, this is a must-see. It is also one of the two cathedrals of the city, built in an amazing gothic style started in the 1300s. The church tower is the highest one in Romania. It is located right in the center of the city, in the middle of a large square with lots of shops, restaurants, museums and Roman ruins. You can enjoy the bustling city life, great centuries old architecture and stained glass, relax or have a moment of recollection.
