Taxi from the station to the hotel was smooth and efficient. Reasonable. Lots of interesting places to see, though you can cover most in one day. Recommend the free walking tour of the city 6pm: knowledgeable guide with helpful tips about where to eat.

Amazing teachers, useful classes and extremely useful and actual information for your future career. An on top of this, the quality of the people (both teachers and students) is simply the best. As a computer science student of this university, I couldn't be happier.

It's a very good university from România, really well known and appreciated. Looks very old though, you can't compare it with one from western / northern countries

This is one of the buildings of the well known university of Cluj/Transilvania. The building is grand and a beautiful view for the old architecture lovers. It was an interior squad, not sure if possible to visit.
