about us

Located in the center of the historical region called Transylvania, in the northwestern part of the country, Cluj-Napoca is one of the most visited cities in Romania. With a population of over 400.000 inhabitants in the metropolitan area, Cluj represents an important academic, industrial, cultural, technical and business center.

Cluj is the biggest center of IT industry in Romania (besides the capital Bucharest), the biggest software export hub in Romania, the location of the first and most important IT Cluster in Romania ( and has the highest concentration of software professionals in the entire country (around 9.000 people). Recent initiatives in developing business incubators aim to place Cluj as a center of innovation and start-up culture.

Cluj has the highest concentration of TYPO3 developers in the entire country and probably in the entire Eastern Europe. All the national meetups (in the last 4 years) of the Romanian Usergroup happened in Cluj.

Because of top level universities located in Cluj, the city boasts a student population of around 100.000, creating a very lively atmosphere and supporting a lot of cultural events throughout the year, but also a plethora of pubs, clubs and nice restaurants.

For those who are interested in urban Transylvanian life, Cluj is a very pleasant travel experience, a city with a wonderful historical legacy and a great European spot for meetings with inspiring people.


Getting to Cluj is easy and you can choose among plane, train, bus or even your personal car.

If you choose to reach Cluj by plane you should know that the International Airport of Cluj-Napoca is offering 42 direct flights to 19 countries. For up to date flight routes information, you can find it here.

Cluj has great bus connections with Budapest. Thus, an alternative is to fly to Budapest Ferihegy Airport with a low-cost company and then shuttle to Cluj. The shuttle takes six to eight hours to make the travel. You can find more details here. The train from Budapest is also an option.

For Serbians an option is to cross the border by train to Timisoara and then take a bus, train or plane to Cluj.

If you come from Eastern Europe we would recommend you to take your ticket through Munich (Germany).

Also, take into account that there are direct buses from Chisinau (Kishinev), Moldova, to Cluj.

From Ukraine, Kiev or Lviv to Cluj through Munich (by plane), is around 290,- € two ways.

We will gladly help you find the best (fastest, cheapest) route to Cluj, from wherever you are, so please write to us on
