Cluj-Napoca

As of 2011, 324,576 inhabitants live within the city limits, marking a slight increase from the figure recorded at the 2002 census.

The city spreads out from St. Michael's Church (St. Michael's Church, Cluj-Napoca) in Unirii Square (Unirii Square, Cluj-Napoca), built in the 14th century and named after the Archangel Michael (Michael (archangel)), the patron saint of Cluj-Napoca.

Cluj-Napoca experienced a decade of decline during the 1990s, its international reputation suffering from the policies of its mayor of the time, Gheorghe Funar.
