They then travelled to Cluj-Napoca, where they visited its historic city center, including the birthplace of King Matthias and the Catholic Church of St Michael. Later that week they visited Sighisoara, Torocko and Torda. The program ended in Oradea, where philosopher Zuh Deodáth introduced them to the city and its history, including a visit to Oradea Castle and an educational walk through the city center.
