I need a help please

Hallo. My name is Jozef. I'm from Slovakia. My hobbies are spelology and hiking. We plan to visit Romania this july with my friend from our speleoclub Drienka (www.drienka.host.sk). I would like to ask someone from Oradea if there exists a bus link from Oradea to Beius or to Draganesti. If not, what is the departure time of the train from Oradea to Stei (via Holod). Thank you very much for informations.

    Your trains:
    Oradea - Stei - Train no.
    02.40-06.12 P3102 (not on Sun)
    07.27-12.13 P3104

    Oradea 14.20 - Holod 16.25 P3106 (not on Sat)
    and
    Holod 16.35 - Stei 18.04 P3564

    All trains could be canceled by the CFR because, as it is of local importance, the whole track Ciurmeghiu - Vascau (via Stei) is to be either sold out (privatized) or closed down, in a process wchich resulted in many other closures (e.g. Viseu de Jos - Viseu de Sus - Borsa) or privatizations of tracks (e.g. Brasov - Zarnesti).

    It is faster and better to go by bus / van. Take one of the few buses a day from Oradea towards Deva and get off at Stei, from where a local bus goes to Campeni a few times a day via Tapu Saddle from where the path towards Groapa Ruginoasa - Poiana Florilor - Padis Plateau starts (the last time I went that way, it took me something like 4 hours from Tapu Saddle to Padis, quite a jungle of 1 m. tall nettles on the way, hehe). Or maybe you are interested in the wild and beautiful Sighistel Valley...

    However mind you taht both the straight "train" (actually a single or a couple of wagons) from Kosice to Romania and the one from Prague to Romania go via Arad and not via Oradea:

    Krakow Glowny 22.31 - Kosice 05.10 - Arad 14.19 EN381 Cracovia
    Praha Hlavni Nadrazi 23.23 - Brno 03.03 - Arad 14.19 R375 Pannonia

    Best regards and let me know whether I can be of any further help.
    Alex
