Cluj-Napoca in bits and pieces - Winter edition

Two weeks ago I visited my dear friends in Cluj again. As the last time I was there, I had the greatest time in the city with the girls, wondering around the streets with our cameras, spending time in pretty cafés and teahouses and enjoying ourselves to the fullest.

Cluj on my first morning there, after I've been on the train for 10 hours. (long live CFR)

after walking through the city with Ralu, we met with Ștefania and had some delicious tea at Samsara.

after we finished our teas, we walked to Cetățuia, to admire the city from above in the evening...

...and later on we went to Unirii Square and watched how 570 paper lanterns floated away into the sky as a commemoration of Matei Corvin, an important figure for the city.

 on the second day, we went to Zorki Photo Café, where we enjoyed some good coffee in brandy glasses, ate chocolate muffins, laughed and talked about all sorts of things. :)

afterwards, Ralu left for home, but me and the rest of the girls headed for the park and enjoyed a beautiful sunset there.

...afterwards, we went to Qui One Quint, a very bohemian teahouse...

...where we had some great tea, with biscuits and sour cherry jam. :)

on the third day, we headed out to the Hajongard cemetery, one of the most beautiful places in creepy as it may sound.

after finishing the photo session in the cemetery, we went back to the city center...

...and then to a beautiful district with old houses, one more beautiful than the other.

in the evening, after Ștefania cooked us some delicious pasta, we went out to Camino, and since there was no better way to end our wonderful time together, we drank tea, again. :) we spent a lovely time laughing and playing games, before i headed out for the train station to go back home.

there are more photos to come, so stay tuned!


  1. ohh ce frumos le-ai aranjat. a little story of our days together. Imi place poza aia de la Qui One Quint de la poarta, ca avem picioare colorate, si e facuta poza chiar inainte sa tip eu ca o dusa din cauza la cainele din scara. :P by the way, cand am iesit am spart ceva pe acolo, ceva faianta. :)) that building is sooo old!

    1. :)))) uitasem de faza aia. eu mai rau m-am speriat de tine atunci. :))
      azi am stat aproape toata ziua sa aranjez pozele, finally i was in the right mood to do inca mai trebuie sa le postez pe cele cu voi. asa greu mi-e sa aleg, ca mi-s dragi toate!

  2. Ce frumos! In aprilie o sa vizitez si eu din nou Clujul. Ma asteapta tot o calatorie de 10 ore asa ca o sa am jumatate de bagaj umplut de carti.

    1. Mie mi-e tare drag orasul asta, mereu m-am simtit mai "eu" cand am fost acolo...sigur si din cauza oamenilor pe care i-am avut in jurul meu, dar si orasul cred ca a avut contributia lui :)
      Pacat doar de drumul asta obositor cu trenul...recomandarea mea ar fi sa-ti iei cuseta, ca sa stai mai linistita. :)

  3. Minunate poze, frumoasa povestea pe care o spui prin ele. Multumesc ca mi-ai readus aminte cate de frumos e Clujul! De abia astept sa mai trec pe acolo...

  4. wow, cool photos, thank U for post.
