Cluj-Napoca is inevitable when it comes to sustainable urban development, according to UrbanizeHub experts, who say that the Transylvanian city, inhabited by fifty thousand Hungarians, is the first Romanian settlement that can be compared to Western Europeans at all. The second place went to Oradea, which is also home to 47,000 Hungarians, mainly due to the fact that in the period 2007–2015, the county seat of Bihar called for the most EU support, about 140 million euros. You have managed to double this amount for the current funding period. Oradea will also benefit from a good relationship with the economic sphere, an idea and the courage to change – quoted the experts of the Chronicle UrbanizeHub.
