      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!
      DG

      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.
