      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.

    • Cost of living/ general guidance

      by Mariki Online Now May 13, 2006 at 3:24 PM

      Hi guys,

      I am a South African, living in the UK, thinking about studying at Oradea University for a Medical degree. I am trying to get as much information on Oradea as possible.

      What is the average rent for an apartment, fully furnished and heated for someone living on their own?
      How much should be budgeted for food and services per month?
      What is the University like? Has it got a good reputation?
      Is it easy for foreigners to get by in Oradea? English freely spoken?
      IS their any hidden charges/pitfalls I should look out for?
      Is it fairly safe for a woman living by herself?
      Any areas that should be avoided?
      Does anyone know anything about the medical degree?
      What do you think would the effect be on the cost of living/ education fees when Romania join the EU?
      Cheapest flights from the UK?

      If I move to Oradea it would be for 6 years, so any help or guidance would be greatly appreciated as this would be a life changing decision for me.

      Thank you

      by Supergoodguy Online Now Jan 24, 2005 at 1:11 AM

      I'm going to stay with this girl at her parents house. I meet her online almost 2 years ago on Yahoo Messenger. I have also become friends with her brother. I'm leaving sometime this March. Going to stay 2-3 weeks. I'm American and I'm flying to Budapest because its100 cheaper than flying straight to Romania. Then I'm taking a bus to Transylvaina. A round trip ticket only costs627 and I have about800 dollars. Ok finally my questions. :) Should800 be enough for this trip since I'm staying with a Romanian family instead of a hotel and she said they will take care of everything like food etc. all I have to worry about is the travel. I think I read somewhere that you have to have100 for everyday you plan on staying in Romania to show to them or they won't let you stay there or something. So will I have to have1400 for staying 2 weeks or2100 for 3 weeks. I have read the reason they do that is to make sure you will have enough money to afford hotels food and travel expenses. Also what do you guys think about the whole ideal? Thanks a lot.
