*Get on a tram to Nufarul. From there you can see the Selgros hypermarket, and a big roundabout near it. Coming from the last tram stop, make a left at the roundabout. That should be a nice hitchhiking spot, as all the traffic that goes around the city to Cluj-Napoca goes through there.

*Ask around for Calea Clujului. That's the street that starts in the city and goes all the way to the outskirts, heading to [[Cluj-Napoca]]. If you are in the city center, it should be close. Walk all the way to the edge of town (1/2h walk), until you are near the Metro hypermarket. Just there, there is an intersection with traffic lights. You can hitchhike there.

Hint: If you try the first option, and don't get a ride fast, you can walk along the road, and that will get you to the 2nd spot.
