I am not so sure about walking from Bran, over the hill to the village of Magura to Zarnesti. There is a blue triangle trail going up the hill near Bran, but I have no idea if it is actually a viable trail. The other option is to take the Magura road up the hill from Moieciu de Jos. I would love to…
We are planning a trip to Romania this summer and were curious to visit that Dracula castle. We do not want to go on a shared tour because it's much to "touristial" for our taste and would like to get more from the trip.
We were thinking about renting a car or smth., but than we'll be all by ourselves and pretty much "lost" without any guidance, so we are sort of afraid of not missing to much from such a trip. Maybe there are other interesting things to see and visit other than the…
The internet seems to think that there is a bus from Bucharest to Ruse, and then you can catch a bus to Burgas from there. I can't work out the timetables or anything so am wondering if anybody has made a similar trip or knows of a good option for us to try.
We arrive in Bucharest early wednesday morning and are aiming to be in Burgas that evening.
I'm planning on renting an apartment in either Cluj or Brasov for a month in Late-September- October to use as a home base while I'm in Romania.. At first I was thinking Cluj since it has a lot of culture, music, places to hangout etc. Now I'm reconsidering and thinking that maybe Brasov is better. I know that it is supposed to be prettier and that it is more centrally located. Is there enough of a social scene in Brasov?
Any thoughts would be great as I'm not sure which to pick.
Hi, I'm thinking of spending a month somewhere in Europe in the Fall. I want to go somewhere pretty and was thinking of Transylvania. Would Cluj be a good home base for exploring over there? I want to rent an apartment where ever I end up. I found a couple nice places in the city center to rent. I was looking for a place that had a lively atmosphere, with things to do and would hope find people to hangout.
Any thoughts would be great. Thanks.
I'm flying into Henry Coanda at 1pm and was intending to travel by bus to Vala Veche but have no idea how to!
Can one of you lovely people give me some advice please?
In first half of July we'll be driving in a standard car, not pulling any trailers, from Szeged, HU to Sibiu, RO, and presumably encounter the border crossing at Arad, RO. Later, leaving Romania, we'll be driving from Cluj-Napoca to Debrecen, but I'm not exactly sure which route(perhaps via Sacueni) and which border crossing back into Hungary that will be. Does anyone have any tips, information or hints on what those border crossings might be like, such as long waits, what best time would be to…
I will be at the first half of May in Maramures and I would like to visit a fair or a traditional livestock (animal)/flea market in the villages of the region. I have read about one in Bogdan Voda (First and second Monday of each month) and another one in Somcuta Mare (Every Monday), but there are more and I am not sure about the days. Can anyone confirm that the days are truly these ones for these two markets? Moreover, anybody knows which is the most alive one, especially with horses…
