I have been visiting this city during the 2016 and 2017 Untold Festival time. I can't agree anything about Antoine's review. Romanians as people seemed very chill,the food was excelent,low priced compared to western europe. In the first year we used Uber for getting around and in 2017 we used the public transportation wich was good. I liked that there was nonstop program for buses during the festival wich was very helpfull. I didn't feel any danger during our stays. The accomodation was very good, spacious and modern, near Julius mall.

as I went to the festival this summer, I was astonished of how bad and unorganized Romania is. not to mention the fact that Cluj itself felt like it was totally unprepared for it. I must admit the show itself was fine, but anything else was deplorable to say the least. similar to the last comment, half of the people did seem intentionally rude and mean, with the other half (mostly the younger part) totally awkward considering their continuously obnoxious attempts to "look good", if I may, in front of foreigners. I hate using this word, but their were extremely "cringe"! also, I understand that if you have a high influx of people, you are allowed to raise the price. but the quality and service was extremely(!) bad. gypsies did not make anything better. I will not go into other more specific details, but the borderline is that if you want to visit Cluj, take precautions as Romania made little progress ever since the fall of the communism.

this was a personal experience, written after several days from the events. take it with a grain of salt.

a lot of Romanians are very hyped about this city, but heed my words as there is nothing special about it. It is crammed, very dirty, and everything in it still has that Soviet appearance. There are a lot of gypsies in the city. Most of people should learn the minimum courtesy and common sense. It is common to meet locals who have an extremely arrogant attitude as they are, I quote, "Transylvanian"(?). Public transport is a mess in my honest opinion and so are the prices for everything (the most ridiculous renting prices I have seen in all Europe. Barn-like-"flats" which rent at about the price of Denmark or Southern Germany). The only good food I could find was the same price as in the West.

Tl,dr.: Crammed, dirty, Soviet city. Gypsies and arrogant-poor Romanians, proud to be the lowest cast in Autria-Hungaria. Expensive and awkward.

I love Cluj. It is safe and fun. There is a momentum built in Cluj now is a great time to live in Cluj today. Cluj is on the top of the wave.

Living here at the moment. All I can say is this:

Crime is mainly focused around the train station area because you get a lot of gypsies loitering about. Petty theft is the worst time of crime happening there.

Taxi drivers are usually honest and won't fleece you. Public transport is a good alternative too.

Don't worry about car theft or break-ins. The city is littered with cameras and police is doing a pretty good job maintaining the peace an quiet.

The Roma might try to imoress you with stories about them just getting out of prison. Ignore them. Enjoy the good life this city has to offer and mind your own business.

You REALLY need to be looking for trouble to get into trouble around here.
