new informative website about Cosau- and Mara valley (Maramures)

In addition to the already existing website of the Tourism Information Office about Maramures, now there is a new not for profit website made by WWF and EcoRomania about the Mara and Cosau Valleys (including Creasta Cocosului).

Bacau Bus Station - Trans Polosam

Hi All,

Does anyone know where in Bacau I can catch the Trans Polosam bus to Iasi?
All the web sites list the address of the bus station as unspecified.

Also if I can buy a ticket to Iasi on the bus, or if I have to buy on in advance and where from?
I don't want to buy one before I go to Romania because if my flight arrives late in Bacau I shall have to get a different bus or a train.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Car Rental - Driver´s License Less than 12 Mounths

Hi

We have just made reservations for flight tickets to Bucharest during Easter this year. The plan is to rent a car and spend three days in Transylvania and two days in Bucharest.

I do not drive. My daughter is 23 years old, and have had her driver´s license for less than a year. Does anyone know a car rental company based in Bucharest who rents out cars to people with fresh driver´s licenses?

Thanks from Lena

Brasov in winter

Hi I'm planning to go to Brasov in late Feb/early March. As well as exploring the city and cultural attractions I'd very much like to go hiking in the surrounding mountains and nearby towns . However it seems that this will be ski season and I'm not planning to ski.

So my question is, can you still do self-organized walking/hiking at this time of year or is it a bit too snowy/icy and mainly set up for the ski crowd?

Thank you

The salt mine at Solotvyno

Solotvyno is the small Ukrainian town just across the boarder from sighet marmatiei in the north of Romania. There has been a closed down salt mine there for many years but the governnment are about to open it to foreign nationals as a museum and health resort. It looks intresting you can see a bbc article on google. The mine is an easy day out from Sighet for those staying there.

Has anyone done anything with these guys to tell me how it is?

Sighetu Marmatiei border crossing to Ukraine (by car) - Beware!

My girlfriend and I just returned from a wonderful 10 day trip through Romania, mostly Banat, Maramures and western Transylvania with our trust Lonely Planet guide in hand throughout.

One thing I wanted to warn people about is the small border crossing over the Tisa River from Sighetu to Ukraine. Based on the description in the LP Guide, we thought we'd pop over for the afternoon to have some lunch, buy some vodka, then return. What an adventure!

Leaving Romania is fine, but upon entering…
