Iulius Mall

Iulius is a well-established local shopping mall that's been around for nearly a decade. Apart from a wide range of shops and stores, the mall is known for its extensive food court and a low-cost supermarket contained inside. There is an on-site entertainment center complete with a cinema and game centre.

Shopping

When in Cluj, look out for all things local - whether it be sweet (jams, nuts, dried fruit, honey) or savory (cheese, preserved foods, wine, and more) treats, traditional handicrafts (jewellery, embroidery, woven rugs, ceramics, and woodwork), or the excellent quality, affordable leather goods (one brand that enjoys a good reputation for those is Marelbo, with two locations in Cluj). Dracula memorabilia is as popular with visitors to Transylvania as it has ever been, which means vampire-themed souvenirs fill tourist shop shelves. Do not leave town without paying a visit to a local market (haggling acceptable).
