Nowadays, many cities around the world have a monument or a specific kind of cultural activities that difference them from others cities. However, a lot of other cities are more focused on business, on higher education institutions and nightlife entertainment; some cities mix these two categories making a great city like Cluj-Napoca, in Romania. 

With a history of over twenty-one centuries, Cluj-Napoca is the second largest city of the country after the capital Bucharest. With a population around 350,000 people, most of them young and well educated, this city has a great local economy which provides a pretty high level of living.
