The Best Hostels in Cluj-Napoca
Bohemian cafes, music festivals and vigorous nightlife are the soul of Cluj-Napoca, Romania's second-largest city. With increasing flight links to European cities, Cluj is welcoming more and more travelers in southern Transylvania. There are so many things to see and do that most people's only lament about the charming city is their failure to allow enough time in here. Don't make the same mistake. Start with the architecture, ranging from Romania's second-largest Gothic church to baroque buildings and medieval towers. Dip into galleries and gardens. And allow at least one lazy morning to recover from Cluj's fiery nightlife. The city, teeming with students and artists, is by turns bookish and rowdy, so intrigue is guaranteed. The area is great for tourists of all kinds with a variety of interests, and there are some great options for everyone when it comes to budget friendly accommodations in the area as well.
