Considered the capital of Transylvania, Cluj-Napoca, documented since the Roman Empire, is the second largest city in the country, after Bucharest and one of the most sought after destinations in Romania, especially by young people. Cluj-Napoca is considered the “Silicon Valley” of Romania, being the first city in the country where an IT cluster was established.
At the same time, it is the second university center of the country, after Bucharest, with more than 80,000 students annually, attending courses in the technical, humanistic and medical fields, at six state universities. More than the IT center and the university center, Cluj is also noted for its effervescence of artistic and cultural events, which attract a large audience from the country and from abroad.
International cultural and business relations are supported by seven cultural centers present: French, British, German, Italian, Russian, Brazilian, Dutch, Japanese and Korean.
Cluj-Napoca benefits from an excellent connection not only with the rest of the cities in the country, via the European road E60, but also with countries on three continents, such as: Austria, Belgium, Switzerland, France, Germany, Cyprus, Greece, Israel, Italy, Denmark, United Kingdom, Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, Poland, Slovakia, Hungary, United Arab Emirates and Turkey.
