Romanian city has “Eastern Europe’s coolest cafe culture”

The western Romania city of Cluj-Napoca has “Eastern Europe’s coolest cafe culture,” according to a feature in the online edition of The Independent.

The Cluj café scene and “its recent burst of creativity” is set against the city’s long-known bohemian style, mix of cultures and expanding student population.

One of the venues presented is Q Caffe, which stands out with its provocative décor, and which the article describes as “a philosophical reverie made real.” The others are Ceramic Café, a place where guests can try their hand at shaping or painting clay, the steampunk bars Enigma and Joben, Meron and Bujole.

Music festival Untold is currently ongoing in Cluj-Napoca, one of the many large events hosted in the city, including the Transilvania International Film Festival (TIFF) or the Jazz in the Park festival.
