Where can we go skiing near Cluj?
During the true winter days when the snow seems comfortably seated outside and it disorients you, an outing in the cool and clean air may even be welcomed.
It makes no difference if you love winter sports or if you have never tried skiing or snowboarding. We recommend leaving the house this winter and enjoying the snow, if we have it. In the city, there is the option to gracefully skate on ice (or … as well as each of us can 🙂 ). Here, you can find the necessary information regarding the Cluj Ice Rink.
If you dare or even crave spending time in nature, just outside the city, here is where we can go skiing near Cluj:
