      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.

      Exhibits available in the Museum of Romanian Peasant

      Bucharest Nov 13, 2016 at 6:01 AM

      It seems that some of the permanent exhibit halls of the Romanian Peasant Museum/Muzeul National al Taranului Roman are closed this month during our visit. Are the open-air exhibits, which include the wooden church, open during the museum's closure? How about the wooden mill? Thank you so much for any information. Trying to figure out if we should still visit the museum.


    • are all museums in Bucharest closed on mondays?

      Bucharest Oct 18, 2016 at 9:06 AM

      our plan for the moment is:
      arrive at Gare de Nord
      bus to Revolution Square, check monuments, buildings and Romanian Athenaeum
      walk south into Old Town
      walk south to Unirii square, maybe short stop to Parliament Palace for photographs
      back to hotel room (400m S of Unirii sq)

      what will you add there?
      from what I see most if not all museums in Bucharest close on mondays.
      but is this case for all of them? I try to put some indoor attraction the day we will visit the capital but cant find something.

    • exchanging money in Buchurest

      Bucharest Sep 14, 2016 at 12:26 AM

      We will arrive on friday evening so I guess banks will be closed that day but also for the weekend.
      We wont have much time on saturday morning too as we have to catch the train to Sinaia so friday evening is the day we will change most money, my idea was to take some at the airport (just for transport) and then at an exchange office in the center before we check in at the hotel.

      1)is any bank open at the airport after 19.00?
      2)are there any reliable exchange offices in Buchurest city center?

      I'm going to visit Bucarest with friends and they had a great idea.. or maybe not so great.

      They want to watch a match of Steaua Bucarest football team. But the team plays away. So they are planning to go to Giurgiu (near bulgarian border). I think just they are crazy and insane...

      Someone made something like that? Is it dangerous?

      Logistic question

      Bucharest Mar 6, 2015 at 11:34 AM


      I am planning a one and a half week vacation in Romania in September. I will be traveling by myself. My itinerary is Bucharest, Brasov, Rasnov, Bran castle, Sighisoara, and Sibiu. I also want to see the Bucovina painted monasteries. However, I am not sure if I have enough time, even if I allocate two weeks for Romania, if I include the Bucovina painted monasteries. I am wondering if one and a half week is sufficient to cover all the places mentioned. Is there a bus or train system that connects all these places? I am not a good driver so I prefer not to drive. Finally, is there an airport in Sighisoara or Sibiu?

      Thank you

      Car or no car in the city?

      Bucharest Mar 3, 2015 at 3:39 AM

      Hi everybody,
      I'll be coming in May to Romania and want to rent a car to see the country. But first/last couple of days I'll spend in Bucharest. So I wonder - maybe it's better to take the car later and return it earlier? How is traffic/ parking/ is it difficult to get from/to the airport? Our flights will be in the late evening hours, so what transportation is possible after 9 p.m.?
      Thank you beforehand ...
