It is a county located in the central-western part of Romania, in the center of Transylvania's historic province. His residence is the city of Cluj-Napoca. It is bordered by the counties of Salaj, Maramures, Bistrita-Nasaud, Mures, Alba and Bihor. It was founded in 1968 by the territorial reorganization of the Cluj Region (Cluj, Huedin, Dej, Gherla and Turda districts). Most of the territory of today's county was part of Cluj, Turda and Somes (interwar) counties (pre-war), Turda-Aries and Solnoc-Dabaca, respectively, from the Aries Szekler. From the point of view of the traditional culture, the present county is made up of several distinct ethno-folkloric areas (the country of Motilor, the country of Calata, etc.), plus the Cluj-Napoca Metropolitan Area.
