Central Shopping Center

Perhaps the oldest shopping center in town, Central isn't just a shopping location but a meeting point for local residents. Its array of stores includes local and international clothing, jewellery, and cosmetics brands. Restaurants, services, and an affordable supermarket are all on-site.


When in Cluj, look out for all things local - whether it be sweet (jams, nuts, dried fruit, honey) or savory (cheese, preserved foods, wine, and more) treats, traditional handicrafts (jewellery, embroidery, woven rugs, ceramics, and woodwork), or the excellent quality, affordable leather goods (one brand that enjoys a good reputation for those is Marelbo, with two locations in Cluj). Dracula memorabilia is as popular with visitors to Transylvania as it has ever been, which means vampire-themed souvenirs fill tourist shop shelves. Do not leave town without paying a visit to a local market (haggling acceptable).
