Besides an important institution that is represents in Cluj Napoca, the City Hall building is a real tourist attraction through its baroque architecture. At night the building is lighted in order to accentuate the architecture, giving it a medieval air.
The building was built in the late nineteenth century, after the plans of the architect Alpár Ignace, with a Viennese-style, baroque facade and a corner tower with clock, which impresses through the strength and sobriety released. On the tower was applied the emblem of Cluj County (prefecture), because the original destination was that of the headquarters of Cluj County. The building was within the systematisation plan of the city, started in 1798 and which stipulated that any new building had to have city council approval.
