As a person who lived and live in Cluj-Napoca since I was born, I am really surprised to read the bad reviews of my city. I never felt insecure here and I never had problems with thieves or gypsies. Of course you have to take precautions but that's everywhere. In Rome for example, if you don't pay attention to your stuff, your phone or wallet could be stollen in public transportation. So being prudent is the key. If gypsies are asking for money, you have to be ferm in saying no. If they see you unsure, they follow you so you give something to them.
We as people are warm, calm and welcoming. City is clean, not only the city center. For example, I live in the suburbs of the city and it's clean.
In conclusion, as a quote says, "Move to a new country and you quickly see that visiting a place as a tourist, and actually moving there for good, are two very different things."
I think the person who lives in a place knows better the situation there than a person who only visited.
Take care and you're welcome anytime in Cluj-Napoca!

Cluj is great as someone who lived in London and Madrid amongst others, can tell you.

This is not a place to live, it is a way to live it! There is this tranquility around everywhere as well as diverse pub culture .. but of course bad people attract bad vibes ;)

What is wrong with you "good" people ? So racist
Do you think everyone is poor in Cluj? Gypsy or thief?
I have businesses I own properties I will not go further with what I own
In Cluj you find 11 Universities with more then 85.000 students from around the world
This city is so animated
This city is not at all how you describe it I was born and raised here I love Cluj is safe I am not afraid to walk on street night or day , I can live anywhere in this world because I have the resources but I still choose Cluj.
My last vacation in 2018 in Paris I can tell I was not feeling safe on street
In 2019 the public transportation in Cluj is great we have 61 electric buses always on time in station with the band dedicated only to public transport you buy a ticket 2trip with 1.04€ that's not expensive at all
The train I don't recommend taking too long to get around the country
In Cluj not everyone is poor, rude and not understanding
Ask for help for example where to find a great place to eat at a good price , where to rent a place to be close to bus and good price
Previous comment from someone - "take precautions as Romania made little progress ever since the fall of the communism."
Yes we have corrupt leaders in this country work less and steal more but things are very much changed since the communism
Did you lived in communism? If you don't know how it is don't talk about it
Post Impressions after the summer Festival on Aug 27, 2018:
We were a group of 4 - Me from the Netherlands, my gf is from Sweden, and 2 friends from Greece.

We had a general felling of extreme disappointment regarding almost everything about Cluj-Napoca. The problem as I see it, is the almost aggressive marketing campaign that the majority of Romanians put forward about this specifically city. Either the general standards for a decent city in Romania is extremely low, or Romanians suffer from what seems to be an inferiority complex fueled by how the West presents itself aka lots of marketing but its actually pretty crap, such as London, Paris, Barcelona.

In other words, as I do not want to discuss too much about the people we met in Cluj-Napoca..., the infrastructure is garbage including public transport, car rental, traffic; rents are disgusting both in hygiene, prices, and service itself; general attitude of store clerks was abysmal, English certainly not being present at all in some cases; prices in restaurants and bars are sometimes competing if not equal to those in the West.

I could go to great length to also express my opinions on why in Good God's Name we had to always hear Transylvania instead of Romania, but it will certainly say a lot more about me rather than the quality of people who continued to confuse us. There were certain aspects in the comments down below which should've been kept to a minimum but tbh I understand them completely .
