located on Avram Iancu Square
The Archdiocese of Vadului is an archbishopric of the Romanian Orthodox Church with a bishop's seat in the municipality of Cluj-Napoca. It was founded in 1921. As a suffragan of the bishopric of the Transylvania Metropolitan Church.

Cluj-Napoca is the fourth most populous city in Romania, and the seat of Cluj County in the northwestern part of the country.
As of 2011, 324,576 inhabitants lived within the city limits (making it the country's second most populous at the time, after the national capital Bucharest),

The history of Cluj-Napoca covers the time from the Roman conquest of Dacia, when a Roman settlement named Napoca existed on the location of the later city. The oldest human settlement near Cluj, dating from the Neolithic Age, is at Gura Baciului, near Suceagu, in the valley of a tributary of the Nadăș river and nearby the Hoia Forest. The settlement dates back to 6000–5500 BCE, making it the oldest in Transylvania.
