Currency in Brasov, Romania?

by daileyjoy

Currency in Brasov, Romania?
I am aware that right now Brasov is using 3 different types of currency, the old Lei, the RON and the Euro. I am nervous about becoming confused while shopping, taking taxis and paying bills. I was hoping someone could offer some tips as to the best way to get used to this without getting ripped off or losing a lot of money by making stupid mistakes. What about US ATM or checks? Should I carry all 3 currencies with me at all times or just one. This is very confusing to me? Please help.

Wrong ! Romania have just one currency, leu (singular) - lei (plural). Exchange rate is 1 $ = 2.57 lei and 1 Euro = 3.37 lei. ATM, Banks or Exchange Offices are everywhere. It's simple...

There is no need to pay for anything in Euro. Large items like hotel bills might sometimes be quoted in Euro, but all normal daily purchases will be displayed and paid in RON. So concentrate on learning to recognise the RON bills and have a rough idea in your head how much each is worth in your own currency. ATMs are fine; travellers checks are just a nuisance.

DJ, part of your confusion might be the relatively recent re-minting of the currency. Serveral zero's were cut off of the bills, but the grace period for using both have already passed.

Due to proximity within Europe, the EUR is understood, but is not official.

Travel Tips for Brasov

multinational

by Aurorae

Brasov is a multicultural place, besides the majority of Romanians, there are also a lot of Germans and Hungarians living there. It is great to see the cultural diversity, inscriptions on several languages, and different cultural programs around the town. There are also Catholic churches, beside Orthodox ones (since Romanians are Orthodox).

Peles Castle

by mvtouring

Located in Sinaia (44 km from Brasov), Peles Castle is considered by many one of the most beautiful castles in all Europe. It was the final resting place for several Romanian monarchs including King Carol I, who died here in 1914
The castle was built in wood, stone, bricks and marble and comprises more than 160 rooms. The representative style used is German Renaissance, but one can easily discover elements belonging to the Italian Renaissance, Gothic, German Baroque and French Rococo style.

Peles is surrounded by seven terraces decorated with statues (sculptured by the Italian, Romanelli), stone-made-wells, ornamental vases and Carara marble. The architects used an abundance of wooden decoration, both for the exterior and for the interior of the castle, which confers a very special quality to the building.

Bus

by Nobbe

Brasov has a well-developed bus and trolley system with buses running every 10 minutes between 05:30 to midnight (Sat, Sun 06:00-22:30). Buses and trolleybuses in Brasov have a standard price per journey. Tickets can be bought at RAT Bv kiosks. You must punch your ticket yourself once on board. Controllers check your tickets.

Bella Muzica

by DPando about Bella Muzica

Here Eddie enjoying his gulash, we taste everything thanks to the excellent service we had from the staf. The meal was excellent or more than that, local dishes, starters, deserts....great beer of course..
When we sat down the waiter talked us about which sort of music we want to listen to, yes we could choose from a music menu .
The place sounds very well, cosy and trendy and i guess some expensive for locals. People were clad in good clothes, meanwhile we wear quite shaggy and at all trimmed after a long day travelling and treadding the streets
We just paid 12? each when we could pay easily in Canda or Barcelona 40? each ..so was the greatest point !!

Old Town Hall Square

by msocolin

The Old Town Hall Square, surrounded by venerable houses, has witnessed much of what has taken place on the historical stage even from quite early times, events that have determined the town's destiny. During Medieval Age the square hosted the Cask Market, the Flower Market, the Grain Market, the Butter Market, the Horses Market and the Oxen Market. The square is still the town's pulsing center.
