Huedin is a town in Transylvania, Romania, 46 km west of Cluj-Napoca. It is the gateway to the Apuseni Mountains region, which is fast becoming one of Romania's agrotourism and ecotourism hotspots. The town itself is fairly bland, even though there is a good country-style market, especially on weekends.
