Discover the picturesque historic centre of Cluj with an expert English-speaking guide just for you and your group. The best way to get to know this ancient Romanian city!

Private Tour of Cluj Itinerary

Begin your English language private tour of the historic centre of Cluj in the emblematic Unirii Square, Romanian for "Union Square", where you'll meet at the equestrian statue of Matthias Corvinus. Do you know why this 15th century figure was so key in Eastern European history?

In the same square you'll see one of the city's most iconic Gothic monuments: the St Michael's Church, the second largest church in the Transylvania region. As you admire its majestic architecture, your gaze will naturally focus on the immense tower of over 260 feet (80 m) in height. Your guide will reveal the reasons why the tower was built so tall...

Not far from the church, you'll find the elegant Banffy Castle, an 18th century Baroque palace which is nowadays home to the National Art Museum. Inside, you'll have the opportunity to contemplate the permanent collection of little-known Romanian art. Your private tour of Cluj will then continue to Strada Iuliu Maniu, known as "mirror street" - you'll soon see why with your own eyes!

At the end of "mirror street", two of the city's most symbolic landmarks are located: the Orthodox Dormition of the Theotokos Cathedral, a fusion of Renaissance and Byzantine styles, and the Neo-baroque National Theatre. After admiring the intricate architectural details of these two buildings, you'll return to Unirii Square to finish your tour with a visit to the Pharmacy Museum. Learn about the extensive history of this industry in Cluj while you discover the different tools, plants and books used in the production of medicines.
