    • Dracula shopping?

      Targoviste Apr 10, 2014 at 4:13 AM

      I'm in targoviste for the first time, the guidebooks said this is one of the Romanian towns that has capitalized on the Dracula connection the most. I'm a vampire fan, and I like to find cute little gift shops to buy this stuff, but I'm not having any luck. What area of town do I go to?

    • - booking

      Romania Yesterday

      I've just tried to book a bus ticket (17.05.2014) from Baia Mare to Cluj Napoca airport. But for some reason I can't do this online. All I can see on the site is the information, that my ticket is "occupadi" (or sth like this, sorry, can't speak romanian). Is that mean the ticket is not available? Is there any possibility to buy the ticket directly in the bus? Have you tried to buy it in that way? Help, anybody? : )

      Hey all! I'm just 10 days from my 3rd trip to Bucureşti, România and have a question about the RATB. I'm going to take bus 783 from the airport to Piaţa Unirii and then catch a tram to Pantelimon. I still have my Activ card but not sure how much is on it still. Is there a place at Henri Coanda airport where I can add funds to it? I tried online but for some reason was unable to. Mulţumesc!

      Brno - Cesky Tesin
      Cieszyn - Krakow
      Krakow - Zakopane
      Zakopane - Poprad (both are in the High Tatras region, so is it worth seeing both or one is enough)?
      Long distance Poprad - Cluj Napoca or is it possible to do Sighisoara straight away as Sighi is more interesting than Cluj?
      Cluj / Sighi - Brasov
      Brasov - Sibiu (Can I finish seeing both in 1 day)?
      Long distance Sibiu - Budapest
      Budapest - Pecs

      getting to and around Cluj Napoca

      by lee.evelyn Online Now Nov 1, 2009 at 4:12 PM

      I am hoping to go to a concert in Cluj Napoca sometime in 2010. Would it be best to take a train from Budapest to get to Cluj Napoca? And will the border crossing be safe? (I heard rumours that officials take your passport and demand a bribe before handing it back? has this ever happened to anyone?)
      Is the train station within walking distance of the city centre? Is the Philharmonic concert hall in the city centre? I intend to stay in a hotel and walk everywhere. Which language other than Romanian would be best understood? English, French or Italian? German?
      Thank you for any advice.

      Saturday evening & all Sunday in Cluj for a first time visit....any suggestions?

      by Natashja_DK Online Now Oct 26, 2006 at 2:28 PM

      Hi fellow VT,

      I just stumbled on to this site this evening when searching for information on my coming trip to Cluj! What a fantastic site and opportunity with an amazing amount of relevant and interesting information sharing!

      Ok, ok - let me get to the point :-)

      I am traveling to Cluj on Saturday, Oct. 28th. for business on Mon/Tues and I have taken the weekend to explore and to get a feel for the city, Romania, its people and culture.

      I have the impression from reading a few posting in VT, that the city is fairly easy to get around in and I guess I will spend some time taking in a few of the main attractions (perhaps a trip to La Turda). If anyone can recommend any cafés, bars and/or restaurants or just any place for Saturday evening and Sunday brunch for people watching, meeting strangers and where people are fairly relaxed, I would appreciate this very much.

      I read the Alex's comment about the Carpati - that sounded nice, so I will try to find that. I guess I can find an address, when I get there?

      And if there is anything particular going on this weekend, any special events, festical, parties I would love to get a tip!

      Thanks in advance!!

      Kind Regards,

    • Need somewhere to sleep!!! And help with community art!

      by nessargh Online Now Mar 6, 2006 at 12:11 PM

      I'm travelling to Cluj-Napoca with 3 friends on the 20th of March until the 25th/26th. I've been there lots of times but my usual accomodation is not available this time, and the only hostel I can find on the internet (Retro) is all booked out!!! The hotels are quite expensive, so unless I go without food for the week it looks like I'll be sleeping on the street! Does anybody know of a secret hostel that's not on the internet, or a house/apartment somewhere in Cluj that rents out rooms??? Please let me know as soon as possible, because I'm off to Lithuania on the 11th! If you could email me that would be great:

      Also, are there any community art groups or people involved in community art projects in Cluj-Napoca and the surrounding area? One of the reasons for this particular trip is to do some research into a community art project I would like to set up in a poor area of nearby Turda. Any tips on community art in general would also be welcome. Thanks!
