Walked by and this caught my attention. I'd have to read up on the history behind but it's location was in the middle of everything so a natural place to visit.

Beautiful one. I really liked the big magnificent square. Even tho it was cloudy last saturday it seemed still col. We revisited on sunday with a sunny day and it was just spectacular. Recommend walking around for a while and having lunch in some of the restaurants close by. Ideal for a sunny day.

This was the meeting spot for our free walking tour which was awesome. The statue is quite grand with the king sitting on a horse, with all four legs on the ground indicating he died of natural causes, one leg raised means the rider died of wounds from battle and two legs raised he would of died in battle, apparently...

Matia was a Hungarian King that was born in Cluj, that's why he has a statue. It is located in the city center in Unirii square, next to the St. Michael's Church.

This is really the center of Cluj. The square is surrounded by many restaurants, coffee shops. It's relaxing to just sit and looking at people passing bye.

There is a really big square in front of the monument. When I was there (December 2016) they had great festive lightning, stage with music bands, skating rink and Christmas market. Really nice place.

This is one of those hard to miss attractions as it's not only larger than life, but also shares its central location with St. Michael's Church and some uncovered Roman ruins. Great for evening strolls in any season. We've had the pleasure of witnessing the Christmas fair that's taking place.
