St Michael’s Church & Clock Tower

Cluj-Napoca's central Union Square (Piata Unirii) contains the nation's second most prominent Gothic church with a tall clock tower from which some of the best city panoramas unfold. Dating back to as early as the 14th century, the church still holds daily mass (in Romanian and Hungarian) to-date.

Do & See

Cluj-Napoca's charming historic town center is a pleasure to stroll through, with most attractions easily reachable by walking. Some of the city's highlights include the Ethnographic Museum (the open-air Ethnographic Park will require using public transport to get to), the curious Pharmacy History Collection, and the Gothic St Michael’s Church — the showpiece of Cluj's central square (Piata Unirii). Bohemian cafes and cool bars dot the city, making for interesting break spots.
