Pictures of Cluj and Targu Mures

Wednesday evening I arrived safely at Cluj where my friend was waiting for me with a banana. We took a taxi to her house where I ate a typical Romanian soup. I was two days in Cluj and then I went to Targu Mures. I arrived here yesterday, I’m staying in a village nearby Targu Mures, with the family of team members. At the moment it’s still a weird idea that this town will be my home, but I think that will be better when I get to know the place more. The center of Targu Mures is really nice, but outside the center it’s a bit grey and there are a lot of buildings that are not well taken care of. The nature is very nice here, with lots of hills and some mountains nearby.

As promised here are some pictures of Cluj and Targu Mures.

Here you see the castle of Targu Mures. It doesn’t look nice from nearby, because they are renovating it. The building with the tower is a Hungarian Reformed church (all the reformed churches in Targu Mures are Hungarian).

It’s international women’s day. In Romania this is also celebrated as mother’s day. For this occasion there is a flower market.

The next pictures are made in Cluj. Here I am in the botanical garden of Cluj. This is the Japanese section. Most flowers were already working hard to become pretty, but they still have to grow a bit more. Maybe next time when I am in Cluj, I can see the flowers.

Orthodox Church in Cluj. As you can see, everything is decorated and they like gold.

View over Cluj, we were at a nice spot called: belvedere, which means ‘nice view’.

This is the theater of Cluj. I don’t know why I always make a picture of the theater building, but I guess I like them.

  1. Happy New Year ! I like what I see. God Bless You. Please visit Turda (Cluj County), my city of birth. You have 4 or 5 Post Cards from Netherlands to the old adress ( Armoniei Str). Please if you agree, give me a place for send. Be sure of my honesty, Octavian…an ex-neighbor.
