Popular place to stroll about with dramatic church and this statue in close proximity. Away from traffic this is a popular place for locals and tourists to relax and admire some great architecture and snap some pics. Area is surrounded with some good places to eat and drink.

Matei Corvin (known also as Matthias Corvinus/Rex) was a romanian former king of Hungary, great personality. Great monument in the city center.

Located in the center, it's a nice place to sit, and read, and feed the pigeons. And also great for taking photos. It has great lighting at night, making it even more fascinating. Definitely a must-see.

This statue is really enormous located in strict city center. Nice place to sit and relax but hard to find parking spot if you go by car

The King Matthias Corvin Statue impresses for a couple of reasons. First, it is located well in the heart of Cluj-Napoca; second, it bears several Hungarian flags (which is interesting considering we're in Romania). Easily visible from a number of the cafes and restaurants on the main street.

It's locate in the main square and it is the zero point of Cluj. The ensemble is composed of five monumental statues representing the King Matthias and his four generals. Nice place to take some picture!

When walking around in Cluj you will see this impressive statue in front of the church. It's located on the main square. Nice to take pictures.
