Catedrala Sfantul Mihail 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.

  • I must say what sight for travellers. Amazing Catedral for anyone who is visiting Cluj. This should be the first stop and then you can visit other parts of the city.

  • It's a nice church located in the city center. It's worth stopping by to admire its great architecture. The interior also looks wonderful after the restauration works.

  • Gorgeous church in the middle of pedestrian area in Piața Unirii market. The St. Michael's Church is a Gothic-style Roman Catholic church and the second largest church in the Transylvania. The west portal is decorated with the three coats of arms of Sigismund as King of Hungary, as King of Bohemia and as Holy Roman Emperor. The oldest of its sections is the altar, inaugurated in 1390, while the newest part is the Gothic Revival-style clock tower, which was built in 1837-1862 and replaced a Baroque predecessor. Amazing proofs of historical times inside.
  • A beautiful gothic church that has lasted for many centuries. The interior looks fantastic, with painted glass and walls. You can even climb on the spiral staircase - they say that two people, one going up and the other down will not meet each other of those stairs. The tower is 80m high and provides a beautiful view of the city centre
