The Cluj-Napoca Botanical Garden, which is officially called “Alexandru Borza Cluj-Napoca University Botanic Garden” is one of the city’s most well known attractions. The gardens receives around 150,000 visitors annually and is at it’s most popular during the spring, as many flowers and plants are beginning to blossom.

It was founded in 1872 by Brassai Samuel, a famous Hungarian linguist and teacher, but later taken over in 1920’s by the local university and Alexandru Borza, who was a Romanian botanist.

The garden spans over 14 hectares of land in the centre of the city, with a number of specialised customisations and land configurations to allow the growth and development of plants from all over the world.

Although the gardens contain around 10,000 categories of plants, the gardens are grouped into several different sectors:

  • Ornamental
  • Phytogeographic
  • Systematic (taxonomical)
  • Economic
  • Medicinal
  • Greenhouse complex
  • Special area for those with sign deficiencies

As stated on UBB Cluj’s website, “The herbarium of the Botanical Garden is the largest and most important in the country, due to its collection of 750,000 sheets of pressed plants, the existence of holotypes certifying for the first time the identity of a particular species, and the presence of personal herbaria belonging to botany leading figures such as: Baumgarten, Porcius, Borza. The Herbarium was an underpinning element in the development of the monumental work of 13 volumes – Romanian Flora, describing the botanical characteristics of all species of plants growing in the country.”

The location has a number of special attractions, with one of the most recognisable being the Japanese garden, complete with it’s own brook containing fish and even turtles, as well as Japanese styled structures, including a bridge, which is a perfect photo opportunity.

Another very recognisable attraction would be the large greenhouse, which consists of multiple sections:

  • Aquarium
  • Palm Trees
  • Mediterranean
  • Australian Plants
  • Succulent Plants
  • Bromeliads
  • Orchids / Ferns

Phu King Noodles is a small restaurant in Cluj, based on, you guessed correctly, noodles. Plus a funny word play in the name, you got that right too; and it will probably stick to your mind for a long time.<\/p>\n\n\n\n

Phu King Noodles started at the end of 2020, which was a tough year for any restaurant business. They partnered with a couple other small restaurant brands in Cluj and share a ghost kitchen in the city centre area. This way they are able to use the facilities and their staff more efficiently, making things easier for delivery guys too. They are now working on an integration so that customers could order from each of the brands in one consolidated order.<\/p>\n\n\n\n

Phu King Noodles delivers in Cluj through all the food delivery platforms. But you can also visit them in person, to order directly. This way you\u2019ll be able to see how the food is made, as they have an open kitchen, where the whole process is transparent. For direct orders you also get 15% discount; do not worry,even if each order is freshly made, you won\u2019t have to wait more that 10-15 minutes.<\/p>\n\n\n\n

Phu King Noodles has options for both vegetarians and meat eaters. The noodles are nicely balanced, with a bit of spices and exotic flavours. They use grain noodles and various vegetables, plus beef, turkey or even salmon; the veggie noodles contain edamame, for extra proteins. Each assortment has a distinct flavour, from coconut milk and ginger, to mango or peanut sauce.<\/p>\n\n\n\n

If you fancy a dessert, you can choose a cake or the special Phu King Nuts, sweet noodles with nuts and cinnamon, inspired by well-known childhood treats.<\/p>\n\n\n\n
