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.

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.

Turda Salt Mine - the most incredible salt mine museum in the world

With over 2,000 years of history, highly preserved galleries and a futuristic underground attraction, Salina Turda is the largest and the most incredible salt mine museum in the world.

Salt extraction started in antiquity and continued all the way through 1932. Afterwards, the underground space was used for a variety of things including cheese storage center and acting as a bomb shelter in World War II.

It contains attractions like an amphitheater, an underground lake that may be explored with paddles and row boats, a ferris wheel, spa treatment rooms with natural aerosols, bowling alley, mini-golf, sport field, table tennis and pool tables.

Citadel of Alba Iulia - the “diamond city” of Transylvania

Alba Iulia Citadel is one of Romania’s top attractions and its origins are lost in the darkness of time, somewhere back 2.000 years when the Roman Empire conquered the Dacian Kingdom.

Alba Iulia was first mentioned in documents in 1177, as Alba, when the town was already a royal citadel. As a Roman castrum, a medieval fortification and a large citadel under the authority of the Habsburg Empire, Alba Iulia was also the scene of the first and brief Romanian union from 1600.

What makes this impressive citadel more famous and special, is the day of December 1st 1918 when Transylvania decided its union with Romania, celebrated today as the National Day of the country.

Some of the Alba Iulia top attractions are the Citadel of Alba Iulia, the Coronation Cathedral, St. Michael's Roman Catholic Cathedral, Roman Castrum Ruins, National Museum of Union, the Three Fortifications Trail.

Rimetea - where the sun rises twice a day

Rimetea (formerly Trascău; Hungarian : Torockó; German : Eisenmarkt, Eisenburg), maybe the most beautiful village from Transylvania, where the sun rises twice a day, it is located in Alba County, at the base of the Trascău Mountains, mentioned for the first time in 1257 due to the interest in existing iron deposits in the region.

It is said that at Rimetea the sun rises twice a day. At first it appears shy in the early hours of the morning, then hidden behind the Tears' Colts and then rises a second time, continuing unimpededly floating on the celestial vault. This phenomenon is due to the massive rock wall, which seems to protect with its imposing allure the little village covered at its feet.
