Calvaria Church

Mănăştur (Hungarian Kolozsmonostor; German Abtsdorf) is a district of the Romanian city of Cluj-Napoca which has been a part of the city since 1895. After the Second Vienna Award, Kolozsmonostor (Mănăștur) was situated 1 km from the border with Romania, at Erdőfelek/Feleacu. The district was changed during Nicolae Ceauşescu's systematisation rule to the site of an older settlement. Its population as of 2007 is approximately 126,600. It is home to the Cluj-Napoca Calvaria Church, a Benedictine abbey built in the 9th-10th centuries.
