Cluj is a great city, for sure, but the comments saying that the average salary is anything like those mentioned, are absolutely incorrect.
Unfortunately, this perception has led to the rise of prices and expenses for everyone, making it almost impossible for the average Romanian person to have any comfort of life or even afford basic rent.
Foreigners need to realize that Cluj is still a Romanian city, a great one yes, but doesn't mean the prices should be like in Paris or Berlin.
