Turda is a municipality in Cluj County, Transylvania, Romania. It is located about 30 km southeast of Cluj-Napoca.
Turda was founded as a settlement if probably under the name of Turdava. It was conquered by the Romans and renamed Potaissa.
Several paleo-Christian vestiges would have been discovered on these sites.

In 1568 John II Sigismund Zápolya, prince of Transylvania, issued here the Edict of Turda, the first decree of religious freedom in the modern history of Europe. Turda was during the Kingdom of Hungary the residence of the Turda County (Torda vármegye), and since 1876 the residence of the Turda-Arieș County (Torda-Aranyos vármegye).
