Travellers with Disabilities

  • Romania is not well equipped for people with disabilities, even though there has been some improvement over recent years.
  • Wheelchair ramps are available only at some upmarket hotels and restaurants, and public transport is a challenge for anyone with mobility problems.
  • Romania Motivation Foundation (www.motivation.ro) is a local organisation with offices around the country to assist people in wheelchairs and with mobility issues. It has a good website in English for people confined to wheelchairs.
