    Best private room

    by

    We met Eugene at the Brasov train station and decided to try out his place. Best place that I have ever stayed. He is very hospitable and provide a hand drawn map of Brasov and information which include where and how to take busses, good restaurant etc. After a session with him, you will be streetwise in Brasov.

    He speaks very good English and we are able to know more about Romania from him. His mother is very friendly eventhough she does not speak English.

    Unique Quality: Home environment and very close to town centre.

Rasnov,Bran and Prejmer in a day.

by eltont

Hello everyone,
I was just wondering if it would be possible to visit Rasnov fortress,Bran castle and Prejmer church all in one day using public transport and/or taxis,and if so how much would it be and roughly how long would you be able to spend in each. Also,does anyone know the exact opening days/times for each place as I seem to get conflicting answers from various websites and guide books.
Cheers.

It's certainly possible to do this trip by taxi and it should cost between 30 and 50 euros (Brasov-Prejmer 18km, Brasov-Rasnov 16km, Rasnov-Bran 12km); you'll probably be able to spend two-three hours in each place.

You could also try to do it by public transport, there are buses to Bran (via Rasnov) leaving from Brasov every half hour.

That's very helpful thanks.Any ideas as to the opening days/times of each place?I shall be visiting in June.Cheers.

Don't know anything certain about opening times.
Bran castle's official site ( brancastlemuseum.ro/) says that it's open between 9AM-6PM from Tuesday to Sunday and between 9AM-1PM on Mondays.
Rasnov fortress is probably open daily, from early morning till evening.
Prejmer church is probably open just a few days per week, from morning to afternoon.

It would be tough to do the whole thing by public transport in a day, as Prejmer is in the wrong direction relative to the other two places. So you'd have to use a taxi for at least part of the trip. There are reasonably frequent buses between Brasov, Rasnov, and Bran, so with an early start you might be able to visit them by bus, return to Brasov and get a taxi to Prejmer. But it would be a bit rushed, and I don't know if the opening hours (especially of Prejmer church) will allow it. So if you can afford it maybe a taxi for the full day would work out better.

Thanks to everyone for this info.There is a chance that I could have a Monday spare,so if that's the case I could possibly travel to Bran and Rasnov on that day,then go to Prejmer on the Tuesday.

Hi, little bit of info regarding Rasnov castle, I went there in January and at that time they didn't open on Monday's but not sure if that is all year round. Good luck with your trip.

Hello,

Last October we visited both Bran and Rasnov in a daytrip from Brasov by public transport (bus) and it wasn't a problem.

Buses to Bran leave about every 30 minutes from Autogara 2 in Brasov. Tickets can be bought from the driver and cost about 3,50 RON. It takes about 40 minutes to Bran. Rasnov is located on the route Brasov to Bran.

You find more info about both places on my Brasov page (Off the Beaten Path tips). I hope you find them helpful.

Travel Tips for Brasov

Brasov Tip

by Varvarino

Although this is supposed to be about Brasov, I prefer Sinaia to Brasov. Brasov is more of a...people place. I mean, it's a city and all. It has lots of tourist places to visit. And, if you're a person, it's probably a wonderful city. But for us squirrels, Sinaia is really much nicer: lots and lots of dense forest and space to play. It is hard not to like it here. Maybe someday they will even let us inside Peles Castle. (Right now, we can only sneak into the basement where it is dark and dirty and full of dust. If we try to visit the nice rooms, they always chase us out!)

(Thank you lovey for taking my picture.)

Bucharest: a capital offense

by midnight_mike

The irony about my love for Romania is that I hate its capital with a passion. Bucharest was a charming city prior to the communist takeover. Like Paris, it had many beautiful churches and distinctive neighborhoods. Then, dictator Nicolae CeauÂșescu embarked on many disastrous building projects. His biggest architectural mistake was the Palace of the Parliament, also known as the House of the People. It is one of the largest buildings in the world. Unfortunately, many historic buildings were torn down to make room for it.

If driving into Bucharest from the north, you will almost certainly pass by the Arcul de Triumf. This imitation of Arc de Triomphe in Paris was built in 1935. There are also many beautiful and historic churches still left in the city.

Bucharest is a dirty city, filled with dust and polution. It is also the seat of corruption... I meant government... in Romania. Hop in an unlicensed taxi and you might pay four times the normal rate. At Otopeni Airport, you will likely pay a king's ransom to get into the city. This is because the only taxi drivers allowed to wait at the "arrivals" terminal are the ones who pay bribes. There are some things to see in Bucharest, but I would advise travelers to avoid this city. There are so many other things to see in Romania.

The best French cuisine in Brasov

by Chrystalain about Blue Corner

The food is excellent with big portions, great service with a soft ambiance.

Do not hesitate to ask for wine advise. Alexandru stayed 3 years in France and is known as one of the best wine taster (sommelier) in Romania!

Nice little restaurant, but difficult to find. Medallion of porc with camambert and cranberry sauce... hummmm!

Cyber Cafe - Internet and Coffee Shop

by HORSCHECK

If you plan to go online during your stay in Brasov, I can highly recommend the Cyber Cafe - Internet and Coffee Shop.

It has quick internet connections and all other other related facilities like printer and CD/DVD burner. Drinks are available as well.

The lady in charge is very friendly and speaks excellent English. Half an hour internet sets you back 1,20 RON, an hour costs 2,40 RON (about 0,75 Euro, 2007).

Opening times on weekdays are from 11:00 h to 22:00 h and on weekends from 12:30 h to 21:00 h
