The house itself it`s not impressive from the outside. Once entered you will find yourself in a different world. Travelling back in time, it will show you how once people lived and how a rulers house looked like.

First we just walked near it, we didn't really recognized, but we didn't even looked for it. Next day it was quite funny to realize that such a big king was born in that building. It was nice to see it.

The oldest lay building in Cluj-Napoca, very well preserved. The place where Matthias Rex was born. Very important place for all the people from Cluj. Like an unofficial cultural center of Cluj. You must visit ti, is in the city center.
