Best way to get from Debrecen to Romania

by ec3-globetrotter

Hi!

I might be going to Debrecen in a few weeks depending on how easy I can get to Romania. After visiting Debrecen I would like to go to Sibiu in Romania but any other city along that way in Romania would be fine as well.

I have seen that there are trains which take at minimum about 10 hours. Pretty long for such a short distance. Does anyone know if there are alternative ways to get to Romania? Are there bus services? If so, can you give me some pointers to web sites (I could not find any so far)?

thanks a lot

www.autogari.ro says that there is a bus from Debrecen to Oradea (1 hour), Cluj (4 hours) and various other cities in Romania such as Brasov every day at 6am. However I have no experience of this myself. It's possible that there are other buses not listed online.

But if you want to go to Sibiu this won't necessarily save you much time over the train. For example the same site shows that you could get a bus from Cluj to Sibiu at 11.00 arriving in Sibiu 4 hours later - nearly 9 hours after leaving Debrecen. Transport in Romania is not particularly speedy, and also the Debrecen-Sibiu route is cutting across some of the main transport routes rather than along them. Maybe you would prefer to stop a while in Oradea or Cluj before moving on to Sibiu.

One other thing about that site - I'm not sure if it allows correctly for Hungary being in a different time zone from Romania - if you do go for a bus try to confirm departure times in advance.

At first sight, you can not make it much faster by bus either as Romania lacks motorways.
Still, here are the links you may need:
www.bahn.de for all trains, including Hungarian and Romanian domestic trains and international trains
www.cfr.ro for Romanian domestic trains
www.elvira.hu for Hungarian domestic trains
www.volan.hu/helynevmutat.html for registered international bus services departing from Hungary, in alphabetic order of destination

Travel Tips for Debrecen

Tips are covered!!!

by chagi1

In most restaurants in Debrecen the tips are added to the bill. Usually in the sum of 10%, so before taking out some change, double check your bill is service was added!! Sometimes when paying with credit card the waiters will push you to round up the final tab.. if you want to go ahead.. just know that you may be paying the tip twice.. if not more!!!

"Hungarian Geneva"

by cobrioc

The history of Debrecen reaches back to the Stone, Bronze and Copper Ages when Hungarians moved into the Great Plain from the East sometime around the end of the ninth century. Today, Debrecen can be described as an University town. The Calvinist College remains with its fine collection of rare books in theology and early science. Other institutions include Lajos Kossuth University of Arts and Sciences, the University of Agriculture, the Medical School, and the Ferenc Liszt Academy of Music all combined into the University of Debrecen. There is also a Teacher Training College and technical schools.

Besides numerous restaurants and shops, Debrecen has abundant recreactional facilities including parks, theaters, movies, sport fields. In the Nagyerdô (Great Forest) district adjacent to Kossuth University there is the University arboretum, an indoor swimming pool, thermal baths, Olympic size out-door swimming pools, several sport fields, an amusement park and a zoo. Debrecen, known as the ,,Gate of East", is the second biggest town in Hungary. It has a nearly 700-year-old history.

Debrecen-the "Calvinist Rome"

by 1courage

"The Great Calvinist church and the Main square"

Debrecen is the second biggest and currently the most prosperous city in Hungary. For short periods she was also our Capitol. Situated in the eastern part of the Country, on the Great Plain, thos city has wide flat streets, in this city you can notice that even a relatively big city can be spacious.
On the main square (Kossuth square) you find the Great Protestant church, the centre of the hungarian Calvinism, built in classical style.
The square itself is one of the widest in tha Country and it has completely renovated and trasformed at the beginning of the 2000`s.

"The Piac utca (Market street)"

If you take a look on the other direction from the square, you see a huge and wide street, the Market street wich goes directly to the Railway Station. Here goes the tram with wich you can go through the city.
This square and this street are the very hart of the city. You find here the most important buildings, like the City hall, the Arany Bika hotel and another lovely Calvinist church. But Debrecen is also famous for it`s thermal water and SPA, as well as for the so called Big Forest (Nagyerdő), wich is nowdays out and away a huge park, maybe the most amazing in Hungary.

"Saint Anna church"

Although the city is rightly called a protestant centre, one of the biggest and nicest baroques churches of the Country can be found here, on the Szent anna street, the homonimuos Saint Anne`s church.
