And it's available in Romanian, English, Hungarian, Italian, French and quite a few more.

Winter in Transylvania
Warm clothes, bring a warm hat, gloves, good winter coat, and a scarf. The wind can be brutal during the winter. Keep in mind that Cluj is a developing city and Romania its self is still developing, if you are used to many of the western amenities, you many not find them here. So bring with you what you will need.
Cluj-Napoca has a well-developed public transportation network including buses, trolleybuses and tramways. The Public Transportation Authority is subordinated to the Cluj-Napoca City Hall. A double ticket costs 2.4 RON (0.65 EUR).
National Theater (Teatrul National Lucian Blaga)
The theatre was built between 1904 and 1906 in the Neo-baroque style. The architects were Ferdinand Fellner and Hermann Helmer, famous Austrian architects who had designed several theatres and palaces across Europe.
Initially the theater had a capacity of 928 places. After some reformations (1950-1956) it was extended to 1200 seats.
From 1906 until 1919, as Cluj was part of the Kingdom of Hungary, it was home to the local Hungarian National Theatre (Hungarian: Nemzeti Színház). Since 1919, the building has been home to the local Romanian National Theatre and Romanian Opera, while the local Hungarian Theatre and Opera moved to a theatre building close to the Central Park.
The Memorandum Monument
The Memorandum Monument is a new construction that was installed in centre of the city, in year 1994.
It was built as honour for the memorandum people, the Romanian-national faction of the nineteen Century, which were sentenced to the prison in the year 1894, for their ideals.
This monument is placed into the Unirii Square on the beginning of the Heroes Boulevard.
