A blog about my time in Romania, particularly Cluj, would be incomplete without some mention of pretzels (covrigi). They are popular in Cluj! Pretzel stands are about as frequent as coffee shops in Seattle.


vegan pretzels

You can get pretzels with any number of additions from chocolate to cheeze to raisins.

During advent and lent and other times of fasting in the Orthodox calendar (post) they even make them vegan.

The other reason for this post is to provide a reason for me to post on of my favorite pictures from Cluj.
