Does anyone have any info on how one would travel between Sofia, Bulgaria and the Transylvania area in Romania. Renting a car or train are the 2 options we would like to explore. We only have about 8 days total including time in Sofia. Any route suggestions and places to visit along the way would be appreciated. Also, where in Transylvania is can't miss?
Thanks so much,
I was wondering if anyone had an idea how much this overnight train cost. I believe it is called the Ister. It's easy to find info on the Budapest to Bucharest journey, but I can't find any info on the return. The usual sources such as seat61.com don't have anything in regard to the cost. I have emailed a couple of agencies and haven't heard back. Specifically I would want a double compartment for two adults one way.
I will be traveling in Romania for about a month in July. Based on the recommendations on this site I will rent a car. I have read the rental agreement posted by Chaka, but I am still not clear on what kind of insurance is included in the rental, and what additional insurance is needed.

hello, i'm looking to take the train from bucharest to veliko taronovo in July with my family (wife, 2 kids). Is there any need to buy the ticket before we leave the US (and pay someone a nice commission) or can we just show up 1-2 days prior and get it at the station?

Does anyone have any advice on how to reserve the cabana, and any sights/hikes not to miss? I considered continuing on to the Bran Castle, but typically I go off the beaten path and prefer the less touristy areas. I will have a tent and camping equipment, and am not…
We plan a family trip to Romania at the end of July (We will land in Craiova on the 24/07 at 13:00; & leave from the same airport on the 31/07 early in the morning).
I started to plan our itinerary & I will be grateful for your advice. We like to taste a little from the castles; & to visit all the nature scenery places - lakes; waterfalls; watching wild animals; etc. We prefer to chose walking trails of maximum one hour; because our 4 years old son still walks little slowly...
I would like to visit Romania end of August and would like to plan some walking/hiking routes.
Do you have any suggestion easy routes for 1/2 days without any local guide?
or Is there any websites which can I study on routes?
