Cluj has a vibrant art scene. Start with the National Art Museum, housed in a baroque palace and filled with 19th and 20th century Romanian art. Then venture to Fabrica de Pensule, a paintbrush factory turned contemporary art hub. Attend an event or book a free tour of the gallery-cum-studio.
Stop by the city’s historic centre, Piaţa Unirii, a large square overlooked by a tall church tower. From there, wander to the well-curated Ethnographic Museum of Transylvania, where you can see the region’s past laid out in artefacts. The museum also has a good gift shop for souvenirs.
With its long history as part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, Cluj’s population is roughly twenty per cent Hungarian. Get a taste of Hungary at popular spots like Café Bulgakov or Tamas Bistro, where you can try classic dishes like stuffed cabbage rolls and sip on pálinka, a strong fruit brandy.
EDM fans shouldn’t miss Cluj’s three electronic music festivals held each year – old-standby Delahoya, with a focus on local DJs; the established Electric Castle, where big names perform in a magnificent castle; and massive newbie Untold, with musical giants like David Guetta, Tiësto and Avicii.
