Hi guys! My boyfriend and I are really looking forward to visiting Romania the first week of July to hike the fagaras ridge. We would love any advice on the following:
Has anyone started from zarnesti? (I can only see blogs starting from sambata tourist complex)
We have read a lot of conflicting information about the bear risk, especially between zarnesti and further down the ridge line. Is it fairly safe in the refuges? Does anyone have knowledge of best and safeSt way to access ridge from…
I plan on flying into Burcharest (OTP)on the morning of July 2nd. The idea is to work my way up towards Cluj-Napoca and the Maramures then down to Timisoara and to Belgrade. Some places I am interested in seeing/visiting are Sinaia, Brasov (Rasnov and Bran Castle), Sibiu, Sighisoara and some where in the Maramures County (maybe Sighetu or Baia Mare).
I was wondering if this is possible in this amount of time and a potential itinerary to do so. I know there are a lot of places listed to cover in…
I am planning a 15 day trip to Romania. I will spend part of it in Sibiu, about 7 days. Then I would like to go to a small village, something with a small inn in the Carpathian mountains for a few days. Just want some great pictures of the scenery there. But I plan to use public transport, the train maybe to go to the village. And will walk out into the mountains for pictures. Any suggestions on a village?
I'm planning a trip to Romania and Bulgaria early next month. I fly from Paris to Cluj-Napoca morning of 3 June, then fly back to Paris from Sofia early morning of 12 June. Yes, I understand that 9 days is a very short amount of time for two countries, but I'm an exchange student in Paris and am trying to see as much of Europe as I can!
I'd be a solo male backpacker, staying in places with backpacker hostels where I can meet other people in the evenings. Big fan of history and culture…
Good morning. My husband and I are from the United States and have been travelling around the World for the last five years, visiting 27 countries. We have been in the Schengen area for the last three months and are in Poland now. We will be leaving the EU in a week and travelling to Ukraine for a month. We then want to go to Romania, but we're concerned that we cannot get in because Romania may be part of the Schengen area now.
Is Romania still non-Schengen and can we get a visa to Romania?
What would be my chances of finding a minibus (or van) at OTP to Chisinau late at night?
My flight is scheduled to arrive May 07th at 00:55 at OTP and I`d like to continue directly to Chisinau.
A helpful poster here on TT provided an e-mail address of Mir Trans Express but they don`t respond to my reservation requests.
Will there be other minibuses to Chisinau at this late an hour at the airport?
Should I resign to Plan B (which I don`t have yet)?
Late May my friend and i are looking at spending 3-4 days hiking in the Bucegi Mountains, we would like to make the most of it, so we were wondering what are some good suggested routes to do, and good sights to see, as well as the best peaks? Which maps are the most accurate?
Also are you allowed to camp anywhere in the park, and what is the best way to work around food/water etc..
we have been doing cooking classes in every country we visited so far and now we will spend a couple of days in Bucharest in July. As far as I could find on google, there is only one big cooking class offering lots of classes except for Romanian food. Does anyone have any idea where to find a nice, typical class?
Thank you so much for your help!
