      Private Drivers from Brasov

      Romania 14 hours ago

      Hi again

      Based on the answers to my earlier question regarding itinerary in Transylvania we have decided to go to Brasnov by train and stay two nights there and do day trips from there by private drivers.

      We will arrive 8 p.m. or later and want to leave early the next morning. Are the private drivers ordinary taxi drivers who we will find all over Brasov (we will stay close to the main square in the old town), or do we have to find a travel agency? We would like to arrange the transportation the the first evening, and not the next morning.

      We do also ONLY want to arrange and negotiate the transportation on site in Brasov, we do NOT want to make a booking online in advance.

      Thanks.

      BR

      Transylvania by Car

      Romania Jan 17, 2015 at 11:11 AM

      Hi My daughter and I have booked a five days trip to Bucharest and Transylvania this Easter. For our Transylvania road trip we have some questions we hope someone can help us with. We have two scenarios for the road trip:

      Scenario 1: 

      Day 1:

      Land at Bukarest Otopeni at 3 p.m. and pick up the car. 

      Drive to Sinaia and spend the night

      Day 2:

      Visit Peles Castle

      Visit Bran Caste

      Visit Rasnov Fortress

      (Visit Brasov)

      Visit Viscri

      Spend the night in Sighisoara

      Day 3:

      Visit Sighisoara

      (Visit Sibiu)

      Visit Vidraru Dam

      Drive Transfagarasan Highway

      (Visit Poenari Fortress)

      Drop off car in Bucharest

      Scenario 2: 

      Day 1:

      Land at Bukarest Otopeni at 3 p.m. and pick up the car

      Drive to Sinaia and spend the night

      Day 2:

      Visit Peles Castle

      Visit Bran Caste Visit Rasnov Fortress Visit Brasov Spend the night in Brasov

      Day 3:

      Visit Făgăraş

      Visit Sambata de Sus

      Visit Vidraru Dam

      Drive Transfagarasan Highway

      (Visit Poenari Fortress)

      Drop off car in Bucharest

      Questions:

      1. Is scenario 1 above doable during the time we have?  This is the one we prefer at this time.

      2. Is Sighisoara MUCH more beautiful than Brasov and Sibiu? Is the detour in scenario 1 worth the time to visit Sighisoara and Viscri?

      3. Should we skip Brasov and/or Sibiu if we are going to Sighisoara to save time? (If time will be a problem in scenario 1)

      4. From Sighisoara to Vidraru Dam. Should we go by road DN14/E68/DN7C via Sibiu or should we go the smaller road 106/105/E68/DN7C via Apold/Netus/Agnita/Cincu/Soila? Of course a scenic road is preferable, but time is of more importance.

      5. Are all the sights mentioned above worth visiting? We do not want to spend time on any mediocre or halfway interesting sights.

      6. Does any of the sights close during Easter? Day 1 of out trip will be Ascension Day.

       

      Thanks from Lena

      Bran, trains and the Carpathian Mtns.

      by Shockgirl Online Now Jan 26, 2005 at 4:27 PM

      Now that I'm in the proper forum, I hope someone finds my post... Is there one of those old fashioned trains that takes a scenic tour through the mountains near Bran or in a driveable distance from there? I have activities planned for the first few days, leaving me stuck for plans after visiting Bran. So far, leaving Bucharest headed to Brasov with stops over in Ploiesti, Sinaia and Brasov - Overnight in Brasov, or Predeal. Then either on to Bran or a side-trip to Sighisoara and Sibiu, then Bran. Bran seems to have enough to see worth an overnight stay, but then I'm stuck. Would like to travel back through Pitesti and Targoviste on the way back to Bucharest and would like to do something besides look at castles and ruins. Dince I'm renting a car, should we just drive through the mountains or is there one of those trains that skirt the outer edges of the mountains? Any other suggestions would be really appreciated. I'm meeting mu husband in Bucharest after not seeing him for five months and want this - our first international vacation - to be a romantic and memorable one. Thanks so much for helping me out.
