Full description
Enjoy a lengthy 2.5-hour walking tour through the fascinating city of Cluj-Napoca, know as Cluj for short. Visit the birth house of Matthias Corvinus, Hungary's most renowned 15th-century king, and learn fascinating stories about his life, as well as the importance of wine in the region. Continue the tour to the large Union Square to admire the classic Gothic style of the 14th-century St. Michael's Church, and the large equestrian statue of Corvinus that rests in front of it. Continue walking until you arrive at the "Street of the Intellectuals," famous for its many educational institutions, including the Babes-Bolyai University. As you walk, learn from your knowledgeable guide about the fate of the witches living in Cluj in the Middle Ages, and the formation of the Guilds. Walk past the remains of the city's defensive walls and arrive at a newer part of the old city, named the Avram Iancu Square.

    Learned a lot about Cluj in 2.5 hours. The wonderful historical sites that was visited was awesome and explain in full great legs. I do recommend those who are intersex to kow about cluj to join this tour. Only wished that I had longer time to visit other location in cluj and not just the city.

    Very good overview of the city & great guide!

    This tour is a very good overview of the old town and the historic buildings and churches of the exciting city of Cluj. The tour guide was really fantastic and spoke fluent German and English. We were very impressed with the history of the city and the various cathedrals. Cluj is really very developed and definitely worth a visit. The price is more than fair for the performance you get - highly recommended!
