In addition to its role as a tourist destination, the garden also serves as a teaching and research center as part of the Babeș-Bolyai University. In 2010, the Romanian Ministry of Culture and National Patrimony categorized it as a historical monument.

The garden is over 14 hectares in area, with over 10,000 plants from throughout the world.

Ethnographic Museum of Transylvania

The Transylvanian Museum of Ethnography has a history of more than 80 years, the Ethnographic Museum of Transylvania is one of the first and greatest of its kind in Romania. It has two exhibition sections, one of which is to be found in downtown Reduta Palace on 21 Memorandumului Street, while the other exhibition section is the open-air Romulus Vuia Park situated on the city’s north-west side, in Hoia Forest.

The museum has a collection of more than 50,000 objects reflecting the occupations, the habits and the life style of the Transylvanian rural population. Part of this collection is to be found in the Reduta Palace while the rest of the objects are in the open-air section.

Cluj-Napoca National Theatre

The theater was built between 1904 and 1906 by the famous Austrian architects Ferdinand Fellner and Hermann Helmer who designed several theaters and palaces across Europe in the late 19th century and early 20th century.

The project was financed using only private capital (Sandor Ujfalfy bequeathed his domains and estates from Szolnok-Doboka to the National Theatre Fund from Kolozsvár)

The theater opened on 8 September 1906 with Ferenc Herczeg’s Bujdosók and until 1919, as Cluj was part of the Kingdom of Hungary, it was home to the local Hungarian National Theatre (Hungarian: Nemzeti Színház). The last performance of the Hungarian troupe was held on September 30, 1919 and presented Shakespeare’s Hamlet: “Horatio, I am dead; / Thou livest; report me and my cause aright / To the unsatisfied.”

Since 1919, the building has been home to the local Romanian National Theatre and Romanian Opera, while the local Hungarian Theatre and Opera received the theatre building in Emil Isac street, close to the Central Park and Someşul Mic River.

After the Second Vienna Award the building was again the home of the Hungarian Theatre. On 31 October 1944 the Romanian and Hungarian actors celebrating the freedom of the city held a common performance, the revenue being donated to the Russian and Romanian wounded soldiers.

The hall has a capacity of 928 places, being conceived in the Neo-baroque style, with some inflexions inspired by the Secessionism in the decoration of the foyer.

Art Museum of Cluj-Napoca

Founded in 1951, the museum incorporated some older collections: a small part of the collection of curiosities, cutlery, furniture and European fine art from the Transylvanian Museum and especially the collection known as the Pinacoteca Virgil Cioflec.

Virgil Cioflec (1876 – 1948), authored monographs dedicated to painters Stefan Luchian (1924) and Nicolae Grigorescu (1925), as well as some published writings about art, and brought together a collection of great significance for the life of interwar Cluj. He donated his Romanian art collection to Cluj University between 1929 and 1930. The Virgil Cioflec Art Gallery opened to the public in 1933, the first Romanian modern art museum in Cluj. Its collection eventually became the core of the present-day museum.

Since 1951, the Art Museum in Cluj has housed works by artists Nicolae Grigorescu, Stefan Luchian, Dimitrie Paciurea, Theodor Pallady, Camil Ressu, Vasile Popescu, and others, arranged over 20 rooms. The exhibition presents works by artists less known in Transylvania in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, namely an important collection of works of great value belonging to the Baia Mare school of painting.

Over the years the museum’s collection grew through transfers, donations and purchases. Works of art were transferred by the Ministry of Culture, from the National Art Museum in Bucharest, and by the local government. A further donation came from the Cluj branch of the Romanian Academy (1971), including important works of art from Transylvania (unknown painters of the 18th – 19th Century) contributing substantially to shaping the collection as it stands.

Tailors’ Bastion

The Cluj-Napoca Tailors’ Tower (Romanian: Bastionul Croitorilor din Cluj-Napoca, Hungarian: Szabók bástyája) is located at the southeast corner of the old Cluj-Napoca citadel. It was built in the 15th century and rebuilt between 1627 and 1629, assuming its present form. It was named after the Tailors’ Guild, who took care of and guarded this part of the city.

Near the tower — where Baba Novac, general of Michael the Brave and Saski priest, was killed in 1601 by General Basta — there is a statue of Baba Novac.

Deserted until 2007, the municipality of Cluj-Napoca undertook to include the tower in the city’s touristic itinerary, financing its restoration.

The tower is now a Centre for Urban Culture, based on a project offered by the Transilvanian Branch of the Architects’ Chamber of Romania in collaboration with BAU (Birou de Arhitectura si Urbanism).

The Centre hosts an flexible exhibition space on its three floors being also used for different events such as conferences.
