The neighborhoods of Cluj-Napoca (part II)

If you plan to move in Cluj, you should choose the apartment based on the area and price. In this article, we continue the overview of Cluj-Napoca's neighborhoods, so that you can make the best decision about the area you want to live in.

Gruia neighborhood

Positioned over the Someș river for more than 100 years,  Gruia neighbourhood hosts anyone who comes visiting Cetațuia. Considered a highly priced area, it's among the few neighbourhood with real estate potential offering splendid panoramic views of the city.

Gruia starts at the Chamber of Commerce and Industry (on Horea Street) and continues along the CFR Cluj stadium, the 7 streets intersection (the largest number of streets in an intersection across Europe), but also an imposing residential complex.

If you want to stay home and enjoy the architecture dating back to the bohemian years of Cluj, Gruia neighbourhood is the right place for you.

Mărăști neighbourhood

Yes, the name was chosen after the famous Mărăști Battle of 1917. Under communism, the walls were built as a home for the large number of employees of an industrial compound.

The first free cinema in Cluj opened in Marasti, and the former Brush Factory - now the Center of Interest - now exists as a space of contemporary art. The 30,000-strong neighborhood is an important economic and commercial point for the city, thanks to the office buildings and the famous Marasti Square.

If you are looking for a slightly more affordable area but also want to be close to the center, then Mărăști neighbourhood is a good place for you.

Someşeni neighborhood

It was attested in the 13th century and added 10,000 inhabitants to Cluj in the past years. The area hosts East Railway Station, Someșeni Airport and Someșeni Baths, where sludge and mineral waters were used in medical treatments.

The neighbourhood is dedicated to those who do not mind being a few kilometers away from the city, but they would not move in Apahida either. As a matter of fact, the situation is similar to Floresti and Borhanci.

If you search for a quite neighbourhood, that's far from all the traffic and close to the airport, then Someșeni neighbourhood is for you.

Cluj City Center

What we now call "the center" was once an entire city, built as a fortress. For instance, Lucian Blaga Square and Clinic Street were already outside the fortress walls. Bars, clubs, restaurants, cinemas, museums, libraries, churches, libraries and tourists in particular - the city's ground zero has everything.

Don't know how to get in touch faster with the dynamics of the city and how to never spend money on taxis when you get out of the house? Then Cluj-Napoca city center will be perfect for you.
