Oldest House In Cluj

A great place for history buffs. This house has seen many different eras of Cluj, as it is the oldest house in Cluj. A nice piece of history

The oldest lay building in Cluj-Napoca, very well preserved. The place where Matthias Rex was born. Very important place for all the people from Cluj. Like an unofficial cultural center of Cluj. You must visit ti, is in the city center.

It's the place where the Hungarian King Matthias was born. It's a great place to visit for all those who are interested in history.

When you are interested in history, you have to visit the birthplace of king Matthias. What I do not "understand": if you read the board on the wall of the house, Matthias is stated as a Romanian king. Actually he was Hungarian, everybody knows it...

It was great to stand in a place of history, but because this building now houses the center for art and design for the university, there is nothing to see inside, no rooms to explore to try to imagine what little king Matyas might have been like as a child, no write-ups or brochures with history, just a plaque on...

There wasn't much to see in the house when I was there - not much to do with Corvinus at any rate, or I couldn't find it - but there was a students' fair of modern jewellery they had made, which was wonderful. Great for Christmas presents too !

I like the square in which the statue is placed and I think it is a great place to visit. I like the way it looks in the summer, when you have lots of outdoor cafe's where you can hang out and just enjoy the history around you.

One of the most righteous and wisest kings in Hungary. His birthplace is a pilgrimage site for those interested in the history of medieval Eastern Europe. Unfortunately the museum is not kept properly, and most times remains closed. If you are in Cluj-Napoca give it a visit, who knows? you might be in luck! Since it is located in the... More
