Cluj and Transylvania

Because of the 350 000 inhabitants, the city of Cluj-Napoca is considered the third most populous city of Romania. The 100 000 students living in Cluj-Napoca turn the city into one of the most modern and dynamic cities in Romania, for there are: the football stadium, opera house and tram line; the city is open to political life. The level of development encloses the city within the category of provincial cities with a European vocation. Also, the surroundings represent a sightseeing spot.

 

Cluj-Napoca has many advantages:

Economic dynamism in terms of industry and services:
    - three major industrial and commercial areas
    - 250 companies in IT
    - The presence of a large number of industries: agro-food, automotive, railway construction, chemical, building materials, pharmaceutical, energy, high-tech, textile
    - Presence in the services, finance and insurance sector

 

Outstanding academic presence with numerous renowned European institutions
    - 100 000 students representing approximately 1/3 of the population of the city!
    - 11 universities    
    - Academic training in all areas

Touristic potential
    - Historical monuments (churches)

    - Museums

 

All these advantages are promoted at a lower level because of their lack of investment in infrastructure:
    - Negligence in promoting architectural heritage
    - Complex and poorly maintained road infrastructure
    - Poor modernization of the network of means of transport
