The city might have a nice combination of traditional and modern architecture, but if you’re seeking a trip into the past, then the National Ethnographic Park “Romulus Vuia” – affectionately referred to by locals as the “Village Museum” is the place to go.

It’s located in the city, however, you wouldn’t feel as though you’re even close to modern civilisation when you visit this incredible reconstructed, traditional Romanian village.

FOUNDED JUNE 1, 1929

As a section of the Ardeal Museum of Ethnography, the National Ethnographic Park “Romulus Vuia” is the first open-air museum in Cluj-Napoca. The site receives it’s name from the founder of the park Romulus Vuia and features old traditional buildings such as, folk architecture monuments, folk installations, craftsman workshops, wells, gateways, big wooden crosses and indoor textiles, which are all grouped according to their regional establishments.

At present, the following ethnographic areas are represented: Maramureş, Oaş, Năsăud, Transylvania Plain, Zarand, Alba Vineyard, Apuseni Mountains, Depression Călăţele, Bran, Bistriţa (Saxons) and Gurghiu.

Some of the oldest pieces date back as far as 1678 and features a beautiful wooden church from Cizer-Salaj, beautiful enough that even newlyweds can still get officiated at the monument.

This is just one of many incredible original buildings which in which you can appreciate how simple, yet how complex these structures are, and also the amount of work that went into transporting these wonderful structures to their current resting places – most of them being dated by inscriptions – are among the oldest and most valuable monuments of architecture in the Romania’s ethnographical heritage.

SOME OF THE PIECES INCLUDE:

  • 34 technical peasant installations
  • 5 case-workshops
  • 3 wooden churches
  • A cemetery gate.

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
