    • Crossing Fagaras Mountains - car parking

      Romania Jul 24, 2016 at 2:51 PM

      Hello,
      we are planning to cross the Fagaras mountains in August. We will be traveling to Romania by car and we need to park our car for 5 days during our hike. We will be crossing from West to East, so we plan to start at Sebeşu de Sus (small village near Sibiu).
      is it safe to park our car in Sebeşu de Sus on the street? The car is nothing fancy, a 2014 Hyundai i30. Obviously we will not leave any valuables in the car.

      As an alternative I was thinking to ask some of the locals if we can park in their gardens for some small fee, but we don't speak Romanian so I'm not sure how this would work out...

      Thank you
      Daniel from the Czech republic

    • Cigarettes price in Otopeni duty free

      Romania Aug 1, 2016 at 6:54 PM

      Maybe someone knows the price of cigarettes in OTP duty free?
      I found only British reviews that is the same as the city or even higher because there is no duty free price for The European Union citizens.
      But I am not from EU, so if someone knows if the price in the duty free (for purchase back to my country) is cheaper i appreciate this. I want to know if buy in Bucharest or in the airport before I'm leaving.
      I smoke Parliament night or Davidof red.

      Taxi to Chisinau

      Bucharest Jul 26, 2016 at 3:39 AM

      Can anyone help with contacts for a taxi company that would take us from our Bucharest hotel to our Chisinau (Moldova) hotel?
      Any idea of price so that I can compare it to flying which seems expensive for a one hour flight.

Then perhaps another week in and around the area. will be our first time in Romania so want to soak up as much as we can.

      Bran, trains and the Carpathian Mtns.

      by Shockgirl Online Now Jan 26, 2005 at 4:27 PM

      Now that I'm in the proper forum, I hope someone finds my post... Is there one of those old fashioned trains that takes a scenic tour through the mountains near Bran or in a driveable distance from there? I have activities planned for the first few days, leaving me stuck for plans after visiting Bran. So far, leaving Bucharest headed to Brasov with stops over in Ploiesti, Sinaia and Brasov - Overnight in Brasov, or Predeal. Then either on to Bran or a side-trip to Sighisoara and Sibiu, then Bran. Bran seems to have enough to see worth an overnight stay, but then I'm stuck. Would like to travel back through Pitesti and Targoviste on the way back to Bucharest and would like to do something besides look at castles and ruins. Dince I'm renting a car, should we just drive through the mountains or is there one of those trains that skirt the outer edges of the mountains? Any other suggestions would be really appreciated. I'm meeting mu husband in Bucharest after not seeing him for five months and want this - our first international vacation - to be a romantic and memorable one. Thanks so much for helping me out.
