The city's population, at the 2011 census, was 309,136 inhabitants, or 1.6% of the total population of Romania. The population of the Cluj-Napoca metropolitan area is estimated at 392,562.
In the modern era, Cluj's population experienced two phases of rapid growth, the first in the late 19th century, when the city grew in importance and size, and the second during the Communist period, when a massive urbanisation campaign was launched and many people migrated from rural areas and from beyond the Carpathians to the county's capital. About two-thirds of the population growth during this era was based on net migration inflows; after 1966, the date of Ceauşescu's ban on abortion and contraception, natural increase was also significant, being responsible for the remaining third.
From the Middle Ages onwards, the city of Cluj has been a multicultural city with a diverse cultural and religious life. According to the 2011 Romanian census, just over 80% of the population of the city are ethnic Romanians, with the second largest ethnic group being the Hungarians, who make up 16% of the population. Today, the city receives a large influx of migrants: 25,000 people requested residence in the city during 2007.

I remember seeing several Indian and Chinese takeaways in Cluj and I also had a fairly decent sushi one day. The cosmopolitan atmosphere was quite strong and I can also feel it in this picture. It's nicely composed with yellow walls, a colourful line of people and the dark paving stones.

Placuta atmosfera, foarte frumos compusa, cel mai mult imi plac ferestrele care formeaza si ele un soi de comunitate a lor, paralela cu cea de jos...

clever use of the diagonals here in this excellent composition. It makes the scene so intriguing and magnetically enticing. Superb clarity and a real sense of old world atmosphere. Wonderful!
I wish you a peaceful Sunday - Brian.

Looks like a very romantic place to hang around for few drinks, a great street scene again with good rustic feel. Excellent perspective and a great lens too! good textures and tones on the buildings. Very subtle contrasts of light and shade, but I think that's what makes this interesting and the touch of red makes this shot for me. Great capture. Well done
