Towards the end of the 19th century, on the old Mănășturului street, now called Calea Moţilor, an imposing building is built, which is today the City Hall Palace. At that time, the building was known as the House of Cluj County. The historical monument has preserved its administrative function over time. During the communist regime, here was the headquarters of the County People’s Council. Currently, the building houses the City Hall and the Cluj-Napoca Local Council.
The building impresses with its eclectic architectural style, with many neo-baroque elements. Significant for the palace is the clock tower, where at 09:00, 12:00, 15:00, 18:00 and 21:00, we can listen to passages from the Romanian Rhapsody, by George Enescu.
