Conference city


Cluj-Napoca is one of the most active cities in Romania from a scientific and cultural perspective. Located in the Northwestern region of the country, the city was first attested during the Roman occupation of Dacia, in 106 A.D. Since the middle of the 16th century, it became the main commercial center of Transylvania and one of the most important hubs in Eastern Europe. Nowadays, 400.000 people call this city home.
Having a strong multi-cultural nature, Cluj-Napoca is inhabited by Romanians, Hungarians, Germans, Jews and others. As this makeup enables the exchange of ideas, higher education naturally developed during the last century, becoming one of the major strengths of Cluj-Napoca. The city is a major university center of Romania, hosting six important higher education institutions, with over 100.000 students. A brief video presentation of the city is included below.
