Short description

If you are travelling by car to Cluj-Napoca from the west, you will pass through a village called Gilău in Romanian or Gyalu in Hungarian. At first, there is nothing extraordinary to see: some houses, apartment blocks and churches near the road. But if you stop near a wooded hill, there is a castle behind the hundred-year-old trees, with a history dating back to the Roman Empire. With each passing century, every owner left a mark on this place. We help you discover these memories, by telling you the stories about the renaissance times, wars and marriages related to this site, unfortunate and uplifting moments that form our history.
