    • 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?

      Hello,
      I will travel from 1 June 2014 in Greece Paralia Katerini resort, but I go there with Express International Line bus. It is going from Bucharest to Athens. The bus does not go directly in Paralia Katerini. I will get down near the town of Katerini at Olympus Plaza station.
      How can I get to Paralia Katerini from Olympus Plaza- bus ? I think that taxi is expensive...I will have baggage...is very hard!!!....what is the price of a normal bus ticket from Katerini to Paralia Katerini? per person...
      Thanks a lot ! Flory

      Confused regarding tour plan

      Romania Mar 24, 2014 at 10:51 AM

      Hi...
      Could anyone please give me an idea on how much time I should keep aside to visit these places: Bucharest, Sighisoara, Brasov, Timisoara or Cluj. We would like if any of you can provide us with a definite tour plan. We would also like to include some other places inside Romania and maybe Budapest and/or Prague. Our journey would be of 12 days approximately. Also being students we would like to travel with a tight budget,
      SB

      What is the best route to take from Bucharest/Brasov to Chisinau?

      Romania Mar 13, 2014 at 4:30 AM

      Hello all
      I would prefer to do this route over land if possible rather then by flight. Are there some cities along the way which would be worth visiting for a night or more? Such as Iasi, Bacau, Galati etc?...
      I'm guessing a lot of the cheaper accomodation options around these parts aren't listed on the internet. Would I be better off arriving on the day and searching for a nice guesthouse/hostel/b&b option?
      Thanks everyone!

      Looking for a Farm Stay as guests

      Romania Feb 5, 2014 at 4:25 AM

      Hello friendly travelers, My friend and I will be in Fagaras, Romania by the 13th of Feb. The next night; on the 14th, we have an open night and hoping to find a working farm to stay on, as guests where we will be put up, fed and can observe and enjoy all the authentic culture. (We are not a couple, but can share a room if need be). We read about this kind of thing on Trip Adviser, but people had said they would offer details of where they got to stay, only to have Trip Advisor delete the info.. ? So, I'm hoping this forum will allow details. We are willing to go any direction, out of Fagaras, for this farm stay. The distance within 3 hours would be doable. We have no car, as we are backpacking and are relying on rail, buses and Taxis. ( only taxis in the rural areas). From Fagaras, we travel to Sighisoara...so going that direction would be a plus, but not necessary. Wr actually heard of a couple who stayed on a farm in Crit, but could find no information to contact them and inquire. Thx so much for the help

      Traffic going from the airport to the city center

      Bucharest Jan 14, 2014 at 11:20 PM

      The last time I was in Bucuresti, I got a ride from Otopeni to the hotel in Pantelimon. Traffic was HORRIBLE along 1/E60 so the driver turned off on Soseaua de centuri and we FLEW all the way to 3. Is this typical traffic for vineri around 1500? I'm trying to decide whether to go to the hotel first (it's near Unirii) or pick up Cosy first and THEN go there. If I go to the hotel, shower and change, it might be 1800 before I can get to pick her up and I remember traffic at that hour in the city center was a disaster. Any recommendations? Mersi!

      Airport Wifi

      Bucharest Jan 3, 2014 at 3:15 PM

      Hello all! Well, it's been 2 years but I am headed back to Romania! :)) Something that goofed me up last time was not having a phone to use. So I wanted to ask if there's a way to get a cheap prepaid phone maybe at the airport or something? I don't need much .. just something to text with. I have a smartphone but it's not on the same frequency as Europe. I do have skype on it but obviously that only works with an internet connection. After arrival, I'm going to pick up the rental car and go straight to pick up Cosmina and just need to let her know that I'm on the way so maybe, if there's dependable wifi at Otopeni, I could use skype from there to send an SMS to her phone? We could figure out a phone later I guess. I seriously don't remember what wifi was like there when I was there in 2012 .. or if there were prepaid phones for sale.

      Any info is appreciated. I leave in 2 weeks! Can't wait!!! :D

      after organizing several international paragliding events in Romania, we have put together the answers to the questions our competitors asked us about Romania and some other info and issued the 3rd edition of our Independent's Traveler Guide to Romania which, we think, might be very useful to people interested in traveling in Romania, especially because it contains a lot of info and hints that you are not going to find in other/conventional guides.

      You can download it for free from the homepage of www.logisticpartner.ro

I know no one can predict the weather on that day but in general how reliable is the train on this route in december? Would I be better off taking an earlier train (It's at 5.10 arriving bucharest 8.30) or is there a bus that goes direct from brasov to otopeni?
