      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.

      Hello all
      I tried to book accomodation in Nathans Villa hostel today, but I can't seem to get a contact email address or a website for the hostel. Can anyone provide contact details please? Does the hostel still exist?
      If not, can someone please recommend a good hostel in Sighisoara please?
      Many thanks!

      Sighisoara to Chisinau route & Sighisoara questions :)

      by Drugness Online Now Jul 1, 2014 at 2:03 PM

      Hello all
      I'm hoping to travel from Sighisoara to Moldova but looking at the map, it's hard to know where to stop along the way. I'd rather avoid the 14-15 hour bus journey and I may well end up travelling from Bucharest, but only if needs be.
      Is Bacau, Iasi or maybe Galati worth spending a night or 2 in?
      I don't have time to check out the monasteries on this trip unfortunately.

      And finally a Sighisoara related question :)
      Is 2 nights more than enough in the town? And are Targu Mures and Odorheiu Secuiesc good daytrip destinations?

      by FridgeMagnet Online Now May 24, 2014 at 12:09 PM

      I am going on a day trip from Brasov and I wondered if 4 hours there would be enough? I will arrive at 11.10 and I can either get a train back at 15.05 or 18.26

      Anyone know how far it is from the bus station in SIghisoara to the 'Burg Hostel' in the Citadel? How long would it take to walk or would we need to take a taxi?

    • Trains from Sighisoara to Brasov (and back again)

      by kbyrne Online Now Oct 1, 2009 at 8:22 AM


      We want to travel from SIghisoara to Brasov on a Wednesday morning returning on Friday morning.

      What times are the trains (leaving Sighisoara about 10.00), how long is the journey and what is the fare? Do we have to book in advance and can we use any train from Brasov for the return or do we have to take a specific train? We would like to return leaving Brasov around 10.00 on the Thursday morning.

      Also is there a Romanian rail website that I could use (in English :-)))

      Any help would be much appreciated.

      Hi guys, is there an over-night bus from Sighisoara to Bucahrest? If not which other place is good to see in the area on my way back to Bucharest. On my way there I will be stopping at Brasov and Bran so it will be nice to see something else on way back. Thanks for your help

      Hello ! I went to Sighisoara last year, and I am planning to go again this september. I would therefore like to know if anyone knows of a small cheap apartment I can rent ,which is fully furnished for one week or possibly two weeks? I love Sighisoara so much, and i would like to be able to buy food and cook for myself and my partner. It gets boring eating in the same Resturants, and I prefer to cook . If anyone has any suggestions please let us know. Thanks.
