Church Tourist Spot
St. Michael's Church dominates the center of the city with its massive Gothic silhouette and offers encompassing views from its 76 m (250 ft) clock tower. This 15th-century Roman Catholic church was built partially from donations from the townspeople. On the western portal notice the three coats of arms that represent Sigismund as King of Hungary, King of Bohemia, and Holy Roman Emperor. The interior features some medieval frescoes and the oldest section of the church--the 14th-century altar. A visit to St. Michael's Church represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Cluj-Napoca trip itinerary maker to plot your vacation.

  • Impressive architecture. This is an must-visit place if you came in Cluj. This is located in the heart of the city, the center building of the town. It has an incredible design, representing the high level construction in that times
  • Amazing church, really breathtaking! The entire old city is astonishing, we enjoyed every minute of our journey!
  • Beautiful together with the statue. The pic is beautiful either for a rainy or a sunny day. I read a bit about both of them right after my trip which made it more interesting. I could not go on the inside because it seemed close saturday and sunday. What a shame
  • The church is situated in the heart of the old city. It is 80 m height built in gothic style. The tower with its height is the highest one in Transylvania. It's free to visit, so it's a must see, if you're in Cluj.
  • Impressive, sometimes in summer you may also have access to the tower, where you can see the whole city from.
