On your next trip to the historical capital of Transylvania make sure you consider our Cluj car hire services as your means of personal transportation. Cluj-Napoca or Cluj as it is more commonly known is one of Romania’s most visited cities thanks to its rich history and culture.
The city is served by the Someseni Airport and is connected to the city via private shuttles and of course taxis but your best choice by far would be to employ our Cluj car rental services and have a car ready for you at the airport as soon as you land.
Once in the city, get ready to be bedazzled by the wonderful Gothic architecture wonderfully represented by St. Michael’s Church in Union Square which has the statue of Matthias Corvinus mounted in front of it. He was one of the country’s best leaders and the building is a great piece of architecture featuring murals which date from the 15th century and a fifty meter neo-Gothic tower built in 1860.
You should also visit the area surrounding Union Square as you can see the Teleki and Banffy Palaces as well as the Franciscan monastery and the first Unitarian Church in the world. Wandering around the small streets around the Square can and will take you to the courtyards of old houses and isolated churches. You can also find a fairly well preserved section of medieval wall as well as the Tailors’ Bastion.
The Franciscan Monastery can be found in Museum Square and it is a 14th century building which shows off a great combination of two styles of architecture, Gothic and Baroque. In the square you can also find the Transylvanian History Museum as well as the old Obelisk of the City.
Cluj also features a Botanical Garden which contains a small Japanese garden as well as greenhouses for tropical plants as well as a water course through its middle, it and the Central Park are great places to relax from the hustle and bustle of the city.
Of course there are many more things you can see and do in Cluj and the only way in which you can see and do as many of them as possible is with the help of our Cluj car hire services.
