Horrible monument, one of the worst I had ever seen (second place after the impaled potato in center of Bucharest). Just a symbol of the fanatic nationalism of the former mayor Gheorghe Funar.

The structure is huge and imposing. The setting is nice - in the middle of the square. You can rest a little on one of the benches near-bye or visit the cathedral.

The setting is great - cathedral on one side and national theatre on other side and the square is worth a visit. The statue itself is nothing great

As a person who grew up in Cluj, I hate this monument. Unfortunately the politician politicized the removal of the monument and is still there in a beautiful place in Cluj. Avram Iancu was a great Romanian hero, but his depiction is horrible, I call...More

During our free walking tour we got to see many interesting sites/attraction and hear there stories. This monument to Avram Iancu has an interesting story as he was just a normal man, who defeated the Hungarians during the revolution of 1848 - 1849. Our guide...More
