Looking at going to Cibinfest this September, staying Friday and Saturday nights. There seems to be plenty of accommodation, but do I need tickets for the festival, or can I just turn up? I can’t seem to find much in English about the event.
I'll be in Romania end June early July and would like to spend a week or so in Transylvania. I'm traveling by train so no car.
How should I divide up my time between Brasov, Sibiu and Sighisoara? Should I stay in Brasov and do day trips? Or maybe stay in Brasov for 2 days, then move to Sibiu for 3 days and Sighisoara for two days?
I like culture, history, villages and towns, walking around town, crafts, traditions, eating well, taking photographs. I'm not planning on hiking or doing…
Hi! Can anyone tell me if banks/moneychangers in Bucharest accept cash Australian dollars? I could of course carry US$, but that means having to exchange from AU$ to US$ and then US$ to Romanian currency.
Also, do you know if there is still a through train Bucharest to Vienna, and who can book it for me?(The method shown in www.seat61.com does not work).
Hello. We are hiking the Fagaras over 7 days in early-July. In spite of the many posts and comments in the past that food isn't available and reservations aren't possible, things seems to have changed somewhat as we have reserved accommodation and meals for almost all nights in Cabanas along the way. The one major exception is Valea Sambetei as we've received no response to our inquiries. Has anyone stayed there recently? Do we need our own bedding (and if so, just sleeping bag or pads as well)…
we are planning to spend some time on Romania with our kids ages 15,11,7. we will spend 6 nights in Poiana Brasov- plenty to do in the area. after that we plan to take a long drive to Tolcea- spend 2 nights there and explore the Delta area and then drive back to Buckarest - where we fly home
I am looking for ideas on how to break the drive from Brasov to Tolce- anything interesting and kid friendly to do on the way so that we dont just drive all day with doing nothing?
Also wondering what…
I will need to buy a bus ticket at the Henri Coanda airport (to get to the centre of Bucarest). Can I pay with a credit card? If not, what's the best option for getting leu at the airport? Can you use a credit card in a taxi?
I am thinking about a trip to Moldova and then Romania for sometime in August for approx 10 days.
I will be flying in from London, I have visited Bucharest a few year ago so not really interested in seeing it again.
Transylvania would be of interest to me in Romania.
As I cant find any guidebooks on Moldova, I have no clue what to see there for approx 3 days?
Would someone be kind enough to provide me with a itinerary i can work on?
I'll be traveling in Romania for approximately two weeks - coming from Serbia and heading to Moldova (from late June to mid-July). My idea is to cross Romania and see as much as I can along the way, by train and/or bus.
It seems that from Serbia (Novi Sad) I can get to Timisoara. But then where should I go?
I could go to Maramures (it is quite a long way) and perhaps rent a car there and spend a few days driving around. And then go to Sibiu/Brasov/Sighisoara, and somehow end up…
Trying to make up my mind where to go trekking in the mountains (3-4 days) and when, would love your help with that.
where - Options are - High Tatras in Slovakia, Rila in Bulgaria, or Romania (not sure which specific range, need recommendations)
when - last week of June or Beginning - mid July.
1. Dramatic and scenic scenery .
2. Weather - when and where there is less chance for rain or\and clouds
3. Crowds - I heard that Tatras are crowded but we plan to go on mid…
In two weeks time we will be going to Romania and stay there for about 4 weeks. What is a nice place to visit the monastries of Moldavia and Bucovina. We were thinking of Gura Humorului and Targu Neamt. Are these place fine to use as a base ? We have about 4 to 5 days to visit the area or is this too much ?
Thanks for an answer.
