The colourful streets of Cluj-Napoca's old town, close to the picturesque Museum Square.

This was my absolute favourite part of the city.

Which city have you visited most recently on your travels? Tell me one thing you loved about it 💚

For some of the best views of Cluj-Napoca, climb up Cetaţuia Hill, head west and walk along the edge of the park, and you'll come to Panoramic Cetatuie.
.
.
If you walk in through the main entrance doors, you see another door in front of you leading to the terrace out the back. It's a lovely place to stop for a drink or some lunch, but if you just want to snap your shots and leave, that also seemed to be fine too!

New on the blog today is my post about the weekend I spent in Romania's university city, Cluj-Napoca. .
.
Full of beautiful, colourful architecture, amazing restaurants, and quirky hidden bars, Cluj (as it's known by the locals) makes a wonderful weekend city break.
.
.
Read more about it by clicking on the link in my bio 😀

Doesn't this look like a scene from a horror movie or part of a haunted house?
.
.
It's actually a salt mine in Romania, and it's salt crystals that you can see forming on any visible surfaces in this photo.
.
.
Turda can be easily visited as a daytrip from Cluj-Napoca, blog post up tomorrow evening at 6pm GMT! 😀

We spotted this building on route back from the Turda Salt Mine and then looked it up on the map when we hopped off the bus.
.
.
It's an Orthodox Cathedral and we were lucky enough to wander in just before an important ceremony. If you're in Cluj on a Sunday at 6pm, I thoroughly recommend you take a peek, it was utterly fascinating to watch ⛪

As you wander around Cluj's markets in Piaţa Unirii, the sweet smell of lavender lingers in the air. .
.
For 5 lei (around £1) you can take a piece of the Romanian countryside home with you.
.
.
You could also purchase everything from beautifully blown pieces of glass, leather handbags, and paintings, to cactus plants, cheese, honey, and pumpkins 🎃

If you have any spare drain pipes lying around, they make excellent decorative plant pots 🌵 🌿 .
.
(Taken at the cool, quirky "Yolka Bar" which appears to be such a local hidden gem that it doesn't even appear as a mapped place on Google, so I can't geotag it!)

Make sure you take a stroll along the river in Cluj for views of grand buildings like this one 😀

I love the menus here in Yolka Bar. Their covers are made to look like grass, which created the perfect backdrop with which to showcase my new personalised leather travel wallet by @joojoobswallets .
.
JooJoobs is a small family-run business based in one of my favourite cities, Chiang Mai, and they've been making leather products like this for over 30 years.
.
.
I'm really impressed with the quality of the leather and stitching, and it now means that I have somewhere to keep my passport, insurance documents, boarding cards, and tickets, that will actually fit in my handbag 👜
.
.
All JooJoobs products can be personalised, so they make wonderful gifts 🎁 .

Yesterday we caught a bus out to the town of Turda (much amusement was had regarding the name; you'll understand if you're British!) to visit the Salt Mine.
.
.
Since opening its doors to tourists in 1992, Salina Turda has been over two million tourists, and was voted as one of the top ten "coolest underground places in the world" by Business Insider.
.
.
Inside the main hall you'll find a lake where you can hire rowing boats, a theatre, a ferris wheel and places where you can play pool, mini golf, and try your hand at tenpin bowling. .
.
It is cool but also equally bizarre!

Am I in Cluj or Copenhagen? 😉

Who says you can't have halloumi salad for breakfast? 😋
