Cluj Napoca



Avram Iancu International Airport is just a few kilometers away from the center of the city. It is well connected, with direct flights, to many European destinations.
The plane, therefore, represents the best solution to reach the Romanian city. Especially in the case of an exclusive holiday in this city. Or, if Cluj Napoca is the starting point for a trip to Transylvania.
From the airport, you can use the convenient and cheap public transport to reach the city center.


The historic building that houses the Cluj railway station was inaugurated at the beginning of the 900. Proprietary, it is the Romanian Căile Ferate Române (CFR), which manages the railway connections in the country.
From here, trains run mainly connecting the city with Romanian destinations.
You can get to the city by IR, R or RN trains, from Alba Iulia, Bucharest, Braşov, Iaşi, Oradea, Târgu Mureş, Timişoara Northeast and other Romanian destinations.

From abroad, connections to the railway stations of Budapest are guaranteed, with a journey of around 7 hours, and Wien HBF.


The Romanian road and motorway network, despite the recent upgrades, is still rather lacking; especially when compared to Western Europe.
Cluj Napoca, however, is one of the main destinations in Transylvania and, as such, a must for a trip on the road. From the capital, the distance is about 450 kilometers, crossing important towns and villages of the picturesque region.

Anyone wishing to get from the rest of Europe will have to take rather long times into account.
From Budapest, it takes over 6 hours to cross the 420 kilometers away that separate the two cities.
Vienna, and Bratislava, are a little more than 600 kilometers, with travel times around 8 hours.


There are several private companies that make bus connections to the Romanian city.
Flixbus guarantees connections with modern and comfortable buses at extremely convenient rates. Especially in case you book early.

Atlassib, on the other hand, offers interesting long-distance connections from Italy via Vienna.
