Getting There & Away

Maxitaxis leave frequently from the centre for Cluj-Napoca’s Piaţa Mihai Viteazul (7 lei, 40 minutes). The bus station in Piaţa Romană, a 10-minute walk south of Piaţa Republicii, has buses heading for Alba Iulia (15 lei, 1½ to two hours, hourly), Sibiu (28 lei, three hours, almost hourly) and Bucharest (70 to 80 lei, six or seven daily, eight hours).

If arriving by car, note that parking around Turda’s main streets starts from 1 lei per half-hour; there are machines and signs showing a number to pay by SMS (if you have a Romanian SIM card).
