How to get there:

By plane:

The International Airport of Cluj-Napoca (CLJ), located 9 kilometres (5.6 miles) east of the city centre, is offering direct flights to Bucharest, Prague, Munich, Vienna (provided by TAROM, Lufthansa, Austrian), and Paris-Beauvais, London-Luton, Brussels-Charleroi, Eindhoven, Dortmund, Bergamo, Bologna, Rome, Treviso, Barcelona, Madrid, Valencia, Zaragosa, and Tel Aviv (provided by Wizzair – a low-cost company).

By train:

There are train connections to most Romanian cities, including fast InterCity connections to Oradea, Arad, Timisoara, Brasov, Sighisoara and Bucharest. Many trains to Budapest leave early in the morning. Currently, on the Cluj-Oradea route, works are being carried out to electrify the railway, so there is a transfer from the train to the bus.

By car/coach:

Cluj-Napoca has good road connections. European road E60 links it to Bucharest and Brasov to the south, Oradea and Budapest to the west, through Bors customs. E81 leads to Zalau and Satu Mare to the north, Brasov and Bucharest to the south. E58 links Cluj-Napoca to Dej, Bistrita, Baia Mare and Vatra Dornei.

How to move around in the City:

Public Transportation:

You can use the public transportation system, which works well.  You can pay the fares by sms, MobilPay, or you can buy tickets or e-tickets from automatic vending machines you can find in almost all bus stations. You can plan your trip with the help of Google Maps.


The taxis are relatively cheap (around 0.6$/km). Most taxi drivers know a little English, so you can get by.


Bolt drivers operate in Cluj-Napoca also, so you can use this option to move around the city. The fares are a little lower that that of taxis, but cars could be hard to find sometimes.
