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). Since last summer, this area is now an official ecotourism destination (the only one in Romania together with the Zarnesti region).
The website is just recently launched and constantly updated. For now, it is available in Romanian and English. Here is a link to the…
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.
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
we are thinking of going to Romania in July / August. We want to visit Maramures but we have no idea how we can vistit villages like Breb, Surdesti Sapanta and other villages.
We have no car.
Can you book daytrips ( when yes, where ) are there ( mini ) busses going from village to village or do you have to rent a taxi for the day ?
Any tips for travelling and accomodation in this part of Romania.
Thanks, Hein and Elly from Utrecht, NL
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?
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.

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…
