Berde Palace

At the end of the 19th century, Samuel Benigni, an important businessman, vice-president of the Cluj Chamber of Commerce and Industry, builds an imposing building in secession style. It is named after a famous family from Cluj in the 19th century, the Berde family, who lived in this building. A representative of the family was Aaron, the first rector of the Cluj University.

It is a representative building for the Belle Époque architecture of the city, with two levels and towers that guard one of the Someș river banks.
