      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!

    • Driving to Vladivostok?

      by samswainuk Online Now Apr 27, 2010 at 2:44 PM

      Hi everyone,

      Now, where do i begin? I'm looking to drive across Russia to Vladivostok in June with my good friend. I've heard there is a highway now in Siberia. Is it complete yet? I saw on there's a book by two brothers called 'The Linger Longer: Driving the Trans Siberian' and they drove from England to Vladivostok in an old car. Cool journey, but i need to plan and i am using a 4x4.

      Can anyone tell me if the road is finished yet?

      thank you.

    • Europe to Japan by road

      by andyirvine Online Now Mar 12, 2007 at 8:38 PM

      Does anybody know if this is possible? It seems very hard to find out the state of the roads in Siberia. Also how do Russian visas work? Can you drive across Russia with one visa? Love to do it! Andy

      by goingtorussia Online Now Feb 14, 2007 at 12:00 PM

      I will be going to Siberia in late March if all goes as planed for a cultural trip and ski racing trip. We will be going to Novokuznetsk, Abakan and racing out of Sayanogorsk. Are these places safe? How do they treat Westerners. What do we need to watch out for while we are in Siberia? And last but not least, how are the medical facilities

      Siberia: have you ever thought about going there?

      by Sayana Online Now Jun 20, 2005 at 11:35 PM

      Hi everybody! I wonder, would you fancy to go to Siberia? Do you think there are polar bears on the streets and snow never melts? How do you imagine it?
