Not a palace in the way many think, Banffy Palace is now the Museum of Art. Throughout the year it also hosts many conventions that come to Cluj. Check their website to see if there is an event during your intended visit.

First to Review

Banffy Castle was designed by the German architect, Johann Eberhard Blaumann, for then-governor of the city, Banffy Gyorgy, and built between 1774 and 1775,. It is a representative baroque building in Transylvania. During the summer, the Electric Dance Festival takes place here. The castle is also home of the Cluj National Art Museum starting 1951 – all the more reason to go visit it!

Founded in 1951, the Art Museum of Cluj-Napoca has been operating since 1956. The museum is home to an impressive collection of 12,000 paintings, sculptures, decorative pieces, and graphic arts. This building is also of interest for archeology buffs, at is the most important baroque edifice in the city. If you’ll visit this museum, you’ll get a chance of discovering some of the most representative Romanian artists so don’t miss it if you are in the city.
