Sightrunning in Cluj-Napoca
Servus! My name is Iulia, and I love running!
I moved to Cluj Napoca (my hometown is Zalau - 80 km away) in 2002 when I started University where I studied Economics (Major in Tourism and Services). Because Cluj Napoca is a great city, I decided to live here permanently, so in 2006 I started to work in a local travel agency. Here I was part of the outgoing department where I had the chance to learn the insights of the tourism industry and travel to several countries. In March 2014, I resigned my job because I wanted to set up my own company. I started running in the summer of 2013 and very soon it became more than a passion. It is for me a way of living that gives me boundless joy and energy. I started with less than 1 kilometer, and so far I have some half marathons medals, and in 2015 I will for sure have at least one 42,2 kilometer finisher medal.
I am extremely glad to run my own Go! Running Tours franchise here in Cluj, as it gives me the opportunity to combine the two things I love the most: tourism and running.
I am looking forward to meeting people from all over the world that share the same passion for running and would like to experience my wonderful city on a running tour.
Welcome to Cluj-Napoca! Welcome to “the heart of Transylvania”!
Cluj Napoca is a wonderful city that has it all. It is the 2nd biggest city of Romania, after the capital-Bucharest and it is proud to have one of the largest Universities in the country, the “Babes-Bolyai” University. Also, here we have one of the greatest Gothic style churches in Transylvania with the highest tower in the area. The first ethnographic museum in Romania is also situated here and we have an amazing botanical garden with over 11000 species. The architecture with many palaces and what is left from the city walls, will for sure charm you. It is also an important business center where many international companies have opened offices.
Every morning fancy and tasty coffee shops assure you a great start of the day. During lunchtime it would be hard to choose between cozy restaurants and nice bistros. As it becomes night you just have to decide whether you would like to enjoy a glass of wine, or have a beer in a pub, or perhaps dance all night long in a club.
With many international festivals such as TIFF (Transylvania International Film Festival), TiMAF (Transilvania International Music and Art Festival), Comedy Cluj, International Guitar Festival, Transilvania Jazz Festival, Electric Castle, etc. Cluj Napoca is a candidate city for 2020 European Capital of Culture.
