After 5 hours we were at the Polytechnic University in Hunedoara.there we were  welcomed by prof.  Marius Ben, his wife Laura, a young assistant  professor  Marcel Topor and Prof. of information technology Adela. These are our old friends, who have   already been 2 times in Banja Luka.  They invited us to  lunch at the restaurant  of the Faculty.

After lunch and 2 to 3 hours spent in Hunedoara we went to Cluj-Napoca  Napoca.  Kluž, or just Cluj (Cluj-Napoca  rum.,  HUN.Kolozsvár,  nem.Klausenburg)  is a city in Romania.  It is located in the central part of the country, the historical part Transilvanija, whose largest city.  However an area of ​​179.5 km ² and 310,000inhabitants (census 2007).  The surface of the second and  third most populated city in Romania.  To 1974. city ​​called  Cluj only.
