  • I've been here twice: once for a concert and once for the Untold festival. Still need to go see a football match here, I'm sure it's very impressive as well.  more »

  • The second stadium in Romania by size, but in my opinion the most beautiful, it's an Elite class 33.000 seater stadium
  • Had a great experience during the Untold festival in the Cluj-Napoca Arena the sound and lighting was perfect, the security was good, the setting was good and it felt safe. I don't think they could have made it any better than this
  • Beautiful venue, right by the Somes river, perfect for checking in at a concert or, if you're a fan, a football match. It's placed close to the central park, that also sports great cafe's and restaurants.
  • Nice modern 30.000 seat aerena. Centraly located. Had the oportunity to see it both as a spectator and as player on the field. Hope to do it again every chance i get
  • Very modern arena with beautiful architecture. Nice, large park for children next door. Beautiful area of town that stretches along the river. Couple negatives are that 1st row is even with the field and offers very limited viewing, so sit up at least 10 rows or so. Another gripe is that the lines for the entrance can be absurdly long as there are no modern metal detectors or security scanning, only physical pat downs (which take a while). So plan to get there early if its a bigger sporting event.
