DESTINATIONS romania clujnapoca Shopping Marelbo


Romania's own leather product brand, Marelbo is an acclaimed manufacturer of men's and women's footwear, belts, bags, and all possible leather accessories. Prices are more than reasonable for the quality - the brand has even been distinguished by multiple national and international awards.


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).
