  • Cluj arena shines brightly in the center of the city. A modern jewel which attracts countless events that enrich the life of every ordinary citizen or tourist.
  • Very nice location. Lots of events/concerts are held here. It is the main place for high quality football
  • Ursus was amazing and the waiter was so help and it has all the sports facilities and the coffee was to die for!! It is family friendly with the park nearby, although parking can be a bit tricky so better to use a cab...👍
  • Enormous arena, where the main stage for the Untold festival is set. Its main advantage is the large number of seats, which offer a great view from (almost) any angle. It's also a well-maintained place.
  • Modern design stadium. It has a huge car parking underground.
