The first document of a settlement in what is now Cluj was made by the Greek geographer Claudius Ptolemy, who mentioned here one of the most important places in the pre-Roman Dacia, named Napuca.
Shortly after the Roman conquest in 101-102 and 105-106, Napuca was destroyed, to establish a new urban settlement (civitas), Napoca, on the right bank of the Samusriver. This settlement was founded in 124 AD, under the name of Municipium Aelium Hadrianum Napoca. After the withdrawal of the Roman administration in 271 AD, once flourishing urban life would cease. Cluj was mentioned for the first time in 1167, as „Castrum Clus”.
The Cluj Napoca is full of historical buildings converted into museums for Cluj, memorialshouses of former leaders of Cluj, old churches, many historical monuments in the old center of the city and at least five markets that have helped shape this city.
