The current Unirii Square from Cluj formed the core of the medieval city, clustered around the Church of St. Michael. The medieval city walls delimit the historic city center. The square is the largest in size (about 220m/160m) from the old squares in central and south-eastern Europe. There are bigger squares, but they were formed much later.

On the western part of the old city walls, guarded by three bastions and gates, this square was initially a marketplace, which was going to be moved to the central square. Eventually, the marketplace was moved closer to the railroad, in the current location of Mihai Viteazul square. Thus, at the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century the walls and gates of the city were demolished, and a small park was arranged in this square.

The « Babes-Bolyai » University (1, Mihail Kogalniceanu Street)
Its history dates from 1567, when prince Ioan Sigismund established an Academy of Studies in Sebes-Alba. In 1581, Stefan Bathory founded a college in Cluj, under the control of the Jesuits, which was annulled later on. The Protestants, the Unitarians, the Calvinists and the Catholics established, one by one, other colleges. In 1776, the Empress Maria Teresa established in Cluj a German university which was replaced afterwards by the famous Piarist High school, with classes in Latin.

The name of the cemetery seems to have derived either from the name of the Saxon family Hazinschart, who owned the land that was turned into a cemetery during an epidemic outburst, or from the name of the garden where it was built – Hasengarten (Garden of Hares), or Haselgarten (Hazelnut Garden).
