Mihai Viteazu (archaic: Sânmihaiu; Hungarian: Szentmihály; German: Michelsdorf) is a commune in Cluj County, Romania. It is composed of three villages: Cheia (Mészkő), Corneşti (Sinfalva) and Mihai Viteazu.

Mihai Viteazu commune, which is named after the medieval ruler Michael the Brave (Romanian: Mihai Viteazu), was founded by the merging of four villages, Sânmihaiu de Jos (Alsószentmihály), Sânmihaiu de Sus (Felsőszentmihály), Corneşti and Cheia. All four villages were first time mentioned in documents in the 14th century, after the settlement of Székelys in the Aranyos Seat area. However, archaeologists unearthed traces of human dwellings from earlier periods, too.

The commune has more than 47 square kilometers and 5,749 inhabitants. The most interesting sight of the area is the Turzii Gorges (Cheile Turzii).

Demography

At the 2002 census, 71.2% of the commune's inhabitants were Romanians, 27.4% Hungarians and 1.3% Roma. 66.6% were Romanian Orthodox, 13.8% Unitarian, 10.1% Reformed, 4% Roman Catholic, 2.4% belonged to another religion, and 0.9% Pentecostal.[1]
