      Cluj - Piatra Neamt - What's the best way to do this route?

      Romania Jan 11, 2017 at 3:47 PM

      Hello all
      Am planning to travel from Cluj to Piatra Neamt to check out that monastery region and admittedly it's a fair distance between the 2 places
      Can someone advise me if there is a bus service running for this route? And if not, what would be a recommended jumping off point for a night along the way to break up the journey?
      Thanks everyone in advance for all your help!

I have found a flight with Blue Air from Bucharest to Arad at a good price but am having trouble finding info on travelling from Arad to Budapest either via train or air. Can anybody help me with travel information for this route? and rough prices? Thanks

      Question about the Martyrs of Arad...

      by Drugness Online Now Mar 11, 2008 at 3:54 AM

      Hello all.
      I have a quick question about the 12 Generals and 1 Colonel who were executed in Arad fortress on 6 October 1849.
      I know there are memorials to these men in Arad, but i'm just wondering if they were given a proper burial? And if so, where and do their graves still exist?
      Or were they buried in unmarked graves somewhere?
      Was curious since i will be visiting Arad soon
      Many thanks!

      Taxi's? Public transport? Safety?

      by Drugness Online Now Feb 27, 2008 at 3:18 AM

      Hello all
      My accomodation in Arad seems to be quite far from the city centre so it looks like taxi's will be required.
      Is it safe to get a taxi outside the train station? Should i look for any taxi companies in particular?
      Will i be in for a greater chance of getting ripped off here since i am a tourist? It's always a possibility i suppose.
      Also, here is the address i'm looking for - Aradul Nou, Street Ady Endre.
      I wouldn't mind walking it if it wasn't too far but i've been advised by the guesthouse staff that it's a bit of a distance. I haven't got any decent map of Arad at the moment so i can't check it's location.
      So if i can walk it in reasonable time, i will but if i get a taxi, then is it safe? Or is there a tram i can use?

      Thanks in advance!

      Museum in Arad?

      by Drugness Online Now Feb 22, 2008 at 4:42 PM

      Hello all
      I was reading about Arad on wikipedia and the article mentioned the following:

      "The new fortress was built between 1763 and 1783. Although it was small, it proved formidable having played a great role in the Hungarian struggle for independence in 1849. The city possesses a museum containing relics of this war of independence."

      The museum being referred to... would this be the The Cultural Palace in the museum complex?

      I'm interested in seeing this stuff from the 1849 revolution.

      Many thanks

      Reasonably priced accomodation in Arad?

      by Drugness Online Now Feb 20, 2008 at 1:37 PM

      Hello all.
      I was also going to ask about travelling between Bp and Arad but i see that everyone else in this section of the forum has looked after this already for me :)

      I've searched for accomodation in Arad on the internet. There appear to be no hostels. The only Panzio i managed to find was at the border with Hungary, a bunch of hotels in Timisoara and the only hotel i could find in Arad was the Continental which is naturally miles outside my range and style!
      Can anyone recommend or advice on good inner city accomodation? I'm especially interested in reasonably priced hotels and panzio's. Hostels are good too if there are any around.
      Thanks to all for their responses.
      Best regards

      Does anybody know how to get from Arad to Szeged? Ar there any (un)regular buses that do this route? I know that with the train is more difficult because I have to change in Bekescsaba, but I think it's also a little more expensive. So? Anybody?
