This is easily the most beautiful Church in Cluj-Napoca. I can't Believe we lived in this city for so long before actually getting around to visiting it. Make sure to pop inside if you get a chance to. The statues in particular are very beautiful.

If one visits Cluj, St Michael's Church is a must. It took several decades to build and several centuries to acquire its present state. Now it is probably the best known symbol of the town. If one takes a look at an older town plan, the lenticular shape created by the two main streets running from west to east, forms... More

It is a splendid Gothic-style Roman Catholic church with beautiful remains of frescoes. The oldest of its sections is the altar, inaugurated in 1390. Discover a rare jewel of a thonet prayer chair amazingly well preserved.

A very grand looking Church. Very dramatic main tower. Splendid decorative work throughout. A lovely place to visit in which you feel at the heart of the town. Busy area and very popular with all, not surprisingly. Places to sit outside and watch the world go by. Glorious.

I visited this lovely Gothic church while in Cluj. It is one of it's most recognised landmarks and steeped in history. The famous king Matthias of Hungary was baptised in this church and it is an important landmark for Hungarians who still consider him to be the greatest king of Hungary. It is stunning, as lovely as many I've seen... More
