      Sighisoara to Chisinau route & Sighisoara questions :)

      Sighisoara Jul 1, 2014 at 2:03 PM

      Hello all
      I'm hoping to travel from Sighisoara to Moldova but looking at the map, it's hard to know where to stop along the way. I'd rather avoid the 14-15 hour bus journey and I may well end up travelling from Bucharest, but only if needs be.
      Is Bacau, Iasi or maybe Galati worth spending a night or 2 in?
      I don't have time to check out the monasteries on this trip unfortunately.

      And finally a Sighisoara related question :)
      Is 2 nights more than enough in the town? And are Targu Mures and Odorheiu Secuiesc good daytrip destinations?

    • Fagaras mountains hiking trails

      Romania Jul 16, 2014 at 8:09 AM

      I think this will be my last question concerning preparing my Romania trip this august. I am planning to do some hiking (2 days) in the Fagaras Mountains. There are many trails, so i have to make a choice which trails to hike. I heard, the landscape looks at some places like scenes from The Lord of the Rings. I am looking for a hike that has such kind of landscape. Kind of mystical. However, i am also looking for very well signposted trails, since i will be doing the trail on my own, i don't want to get lost. I also don't want to do climbing, using ropes to get up etc. Just easy walking on a path. and i want to do a trail that only takes one day to go up and return the same day. Though, i am looking for a spectacular landscape. Which trail can anyone recumbent, and. where can i purchase a map of the mountain area?

However, I am a bit worried that it might be freezing at that time of year. Does anyone know what the temperature and wind conditions are likely to be in this area in January?

      I need a tree!!!

      Sinaia Jan 11, 2012 at 3:28 AM

      I posted this also in the general Romania forum but as we will be in Sinaia when this is relevant, decided to post here as well.

      Okay, I realize I've been asking a ton of questions here but then, isn't that kinda why this site exists? :p Anyway, probably the most bizarre question I've asked to date. :)

      We're all set to go to Sinaia for 3 nights, got a nice flat rented, 2 levels. Now, originally we were to meet around Christmas/New Year's but circumstances caused us to alter that. Also, things in her life prevented her from having a Christmas tree this year. So I'm thinking, wouldn't it be cool for her to go upstairs one night and take a nice warm bath to relax (per my suggestion of course! Lol!) and then come to the top of the stairs to find, a fire in the fireplace and all the lights out except for... the Christmas tree! :) Thinking a nice fondue next to the fire would be nice. So the question is, what to do about the tree? I do have a fake tree at home that comes apart and could fit in my luggage (it's less than 2m - nothing fancy). Thinking it might be cheaper to pay for an extra piece of luggage for that than to buy a tree there but, what do I know? That's why I'm asking first! :))

      It would cost me about100 for an extra bag - that's for both legs combined. Any thoughts are appreciated. Thanks again for, "listening" to my silly questions! Lol!

      Vila Calin

      Sinaia Dec 27, 2011 at 3:54 AM

      Buna ziua!

      So, my heart is now set on apartment #2 at Vila Calin, instead of Hotel Cumpatu's double deluxe room. (Hehehe) However, they don't have an online booking setup on their site! Ugh! I emailed them (through vila tudor which is the email they list) but does anyone happen to know if this is the only way to book? If I don't hear back today from them today, I'll try calling tomorrow.

      The place is PERFECT for what we have in mind. Okay see, our first, "date" was online and I, "took her" to a cabin in the mountains where we just had pizza and sat by the fireplace toasting marshmallows. :p So it would be really cool to recreate that in person and, this looks like the closest thing. :)

      Roses and Champagne

      Sinaia Dec 15, 2011 at 12:38 AM

      Hey again...

      So, our trip planning is going well. I want to surprise her when we arrive at Sinaia and was thinking, as it's gonna be on 24 Feb, would be nice to have flowers and champagne. So I'm gonna email the Hotel Cumpatu and ask if that's something they could have in the room when we arrive but if not, is there somewhere in the area where I could buy them? If so, I'll get them on the way and then sneak them in and setup maybe that night, for when we come back from skating. :)

      Thanks!

      Can you recommend me not expensive, not luxury (TV-set not necessary)accommodation place?
      I understand (more by my intuition than Romanian language knowledge hahaha) that comments on this page http://www.hoinari.ro/ don't recommend cabana Babarnuca.Is that right?
      I've red in Polish guide book that C.Muntele Rosu is quite noisy during the weekends-so not so calm and relax atmosphere place.Is that right?What are the comments about it?
      How about Cabana Silva?
      As far as I know Cabana Ciucas is rather self-service shelter.Is that right?

      Have you got other places recommendations please?

      Hi all! I want to stay in Romania for 3 months, and I need a cheap place to live. I have visited Romania for brief periods of 1 to 2 weeks before, but this will be my first extended stay, which may or may not become permanent. I would prefer to find an apartment in Sinaia...I fell in love with the area during previous trips. I would prefer to arrange to rent an apartment before I get there, but I cannot find an online source that has apartments for rent in Sinaia (well...thats not exactly true...I can only find some sites that rent apartments and villas by the day for a very expensive price). I'm looking to spend about100 to200 a month, maximum. A single room apartment is fine, but more rooms for the same money would be fine, too. Can someone please suggest an online source for apartment or room rentals in Sinaia...or at least an e-mail address where I can contact a rental agency in Sinaia? Thanks in advance for your help!
