Cluj is a splendid city to visit any time of the year. There is always something happening and with the constant hub of university students in and around town, Cluj has a vibrant feel to it, regardless of the weather.
Summer time (June to August) is the most popular time to visit this Romanian city as it is when the weather is most pleasant. Unfortunately, this can often mean that flights and accommodation are very expensive, and tourist sites can be overcrowded too.

Romania is very safe to travel to, even when you are on your own. With a language barrier though, be sure of arrangements and prices of things as there might not be a way to overcome confusion. Also, many of the road signs are not in English either, so this is something to be aware of.
