      Romania in late March

      Romania Feb 7, 2017 at 1:29 AM

      We are 2 couples 60+ planning to travel 6-7 days in late March by car in Bucharest and North-Central area.
      Interested in landscape, historical places, museums, good restaurants, music, etc'. No problem with "touristic" places if worth a visit.
      Have no experience in winter-ice-snow driving :)
      Will appreciate any tips about places, what to see and do, driving tips in the area, scenic roads, places to stay, etc'.
      Is it a good idea to stay in Poiana Brasov and drive from there for daily tours and then return the car in Bucharest, to visit the city by public transportation ?
      Thanks for any help.

      Limousine service

      by animsoc Online Now May 30, 2014 at 3:37 AM

      Buna ziua again .. this MIGHT be the last question I ask for a while but, no promises! :)))

      I am looking to rent a limousine for a simple pick up and return in Bucuresti .. at most it should take 1 hour (well depending on traffic). Talking roughly from near Bucuresti Mall to Cora Pantelimon. I'm looking for either a vintage car or a stretch limousine. There is a website that I submitted a request for info from ( but I haven't gotten a response yet. Any info would be appreciated. Multumesc!

      Food stores

      by animsoc Online Now May 29, 2014 at 11:13 PM

      Good day. Anyone from Bucureşti, I have a couple specific questions about my upcoming visit. I'm going to be staying in the area near the Bucureşti Mall on Calea Vitan. What I'm looking for is a food store that I can walk to. Specifically, I'm looking for, "finger foods" to put on a mini buffet style table .. nothing fancy, just things like little sandwiches or that type of thing. The kind of thing you might find at a social gathering instead of a, "sit down" plated dinner. You get the idea. :) So, the 2 questions would be where is the nearest food store to there and also, does anyone have good suggestions for the types of foods/desserts that I could include? For example, in the US for such a buffet style, we might have mini sandwiches, tray of cut vegetables with dip, crackers and cheese, little meatballs or mushrooms on toothpicks, etc. Desserts would be mini cakes, cupcakes, truffles, etc. Worst case, I will just roam through the store and see what catches my eye. :))) Thanks for any replies!

      Question about Non-Immigrant Visas from Romania-->visiting U.S. as a tourist

      by lakeside44 Online Now Sep 3, 2011 at 10:24 AM

      Hi there,
      I am from the U.S., and have a Romanian friend who I would one day like to visit me in the U.S., but I would like to understand more about the Visa process for Romanians (this would be a Tourism/Non-Immigrant "B-2" Visa).
      Can any native Romanians tell me what their experiences have been? Is it a difficult or relatively straightforward process? My understanding is that it takes about 18 days to get an appointment, 2 days to process, and costs about140 US. Also, for how long is such a B-2 visa good for?
      Thanks, Joe

      Quiet Ice Skating Rink

      by animsoc Online Now Sep 3, 2011 at 10:12 AM

      Bună Ziuă! I'm planning a trip to Bucuresţi this winter and am looking to surprise my girl with some late night ice skating. We will have our own skates, just looking for a place, preferably a park that is accessible at all hours. Looking for something quiet and romantic. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Mulţumesc.

    • bus lines bucuresti-ruse and stations of departure

      by msp1 Online Now Oct 5, 2008 at 4:22 PM

      i plan a trip to bulgaria, arriving at otopeni airport. it is in december, and the arrival time is 14.40. i made a research here in the forum and found out that the last bus to ruse from piata unirii, by gitour, leaves at 16.30. ride by 783 bus takes about an hour from otopeni, i read, which means i may be late.
      though there is another company - cavmargo trans, with later departing from autogara IDM Basarabi Kennedy. where is this located and is it easier to reach from otopeni or piata unirii?
      .... i know arranging for somebody to pick me up is the best, but i am not sure i will get somebody, and i don't like to go for a taxi unless really neccesary.
      also , where do i buy tickets for bus 783?
      if you now o any other bus/shuttle transportation to ruse please let me know.
