Long distance Sibiu - Budapest
Budapest - Pecs
Pecs - Sarajevo
Sarajevo - Mostar
Mostar - Dubrovnik
Dubrovnik - Split

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.
I am planning on moving to Cluj in the Spring. My Romanian is limited but I am working on it. Does anyone have any suggestions of where to look for work or volunteer work?

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!!
Does anyone have a salon or spar to reccomend? Also, what are average prices for a massage or for hair coloring?
Coming to Cluj by plane this coming fall.
Need to know how to book transport from Airport to city and return by taxi.
Need to have idea of price.
My husband, son,and I wish to hire a car in Cluj for 5 days of travel. Would you be able to recommend a reliable car rental agency? I am of course looking for the best deal for a hopefully great car.
Thanks so much.
I'm doing medical missionary work in and around the city week of May 23th. I need access to internet cafes to stay in touch with family at home. Suggestions for best internet cafes? I'm a non smoker, am I going to be getting hit with a lot of smoking?
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: firstname.lastname@example.org
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!
