The Cluj-Napoca seen from above

(3 votes)

   CLUJ-NAPOCA, commonly known as CLUJ, is the fourth most populous city in ROMANIA, and the seat of Cluj County in the northwestern part of the country.
   Located in the Someșul Mic River valley, the city is considered the unofficial capital to the historical province of TRANSYLVANIA.
   Today, the city is one of the most important academic, cultural, industrial and business centres in ROMANIA. Among other institutions, it hosts the country's largest university, BABEȘ-BOLYAI UNIVERSITY, with its famous botanical garden; nationally renowned cultural institutions; as well as the largest Romanian-owned commercial bank.
   In the autumn of 1918, as World War I drew to a close, CLUJ became a centre of revolutionary activity, headed by AMOS FRÂNCU. On 28 October 1918, FRÂNCU made an appeal for the organisation of the "union of all Romanians". Thirty-nine delegates were elected from CLUJ to attend the proclamation of the union of TRANSYLVANIA with the KINGDOM of ROMANIA in ALBA-IULIA on 1 December 1918; the transfer of sovereignty was formalized by the Treaty of Trianon in June 1920 (i.s.).
