Train from Novi Sad (Serbia) to Timisoara?

by McCoq

I have been looking for some train or bus connection between Novi Sad and Timisoara...but i haven't found anything. Do you know if there's some possibilty to travel from Novi Sad to Timisoara? (so probably i'll have to go to Belgrade...but i would prefer to depart from Novi Sad).

Thanks.

* from Novi sad to the border with romania [KIKINDA SERBIA] or
[JIMBOLIA ROMANIA] with train it's big problem you need to chang 3 time.

the best will be by bus/car
NOVI SAD - Zrenjanin - KIKINDA - Timisoara

Thanks David!!

Seems that there's a train from Belgrade that goes to Bucharest, and stop in Timisoara..and it's "just" 5 hours (much faster than the 11h that the bus company i found on the net).

I hope i won't have many problems to arrive to Romania..hehe. I'll tell u later;).

are there also busses going from timisoara to belgrade? because i expect to be a little bit faster than going by train. if there are busses, how much is the price? and how much is the train from timisoara to belgrade?

Re: Train from Novi Sad (Serbia) to Timisoara?

Hi David

the only bus that go from romania to belgarade is from "Drobeta Turnu Severin"
dep' at 24:00 from [Statie/Autogara] in Drobeta Turnu Severin and arr' to the central bus station in belgrade, you can see it here:

http://www.autogari.ro/Transport/Drobeta_Turnu_Severin-Belgrad/11090-14233.aspx

I think that the price is more or lass 50 lei.

about buss from timisoara to belgrade I can't found info' on the net but maybe there is a small bus who do this way, you need to ask in timisoara.

about the train price I dont know and it's better if you will open a new question on the romania forum.

all the best david

Travel Tips for Timisoara

Catch the soul of the city!...

by bluecat

Catch the soul of the city! Timisoara is a very important cultural center of Romania and you can even feel it in the air. The very central square named the Victory Square (here the Romanian revolution started) is guarded on one side by the magnificent Orthodox Cathedral and on the other side by the Opera House. Go on Sundays to attend the Orthodox service in the morning and in the evening at the Opera House for a classical delight. You will have a day like in a dream!

The metropolitan cathedral

by Mique

When you look at this cathedral from the distance, it looks like a fairytale building with its green and gold turrets and towers. And i quite liked the way it overlooked the piata. Especially in the evening when it is lit up by the lights around it, i found it very nice with piata Victoriei

It is not a very old building though. It was build early in the 20th century, though that doesn't make much of a difference with regard to how it looks

She-wolf

by viddra

There are several statues of Romulus and Remus and the she-wolf displayed in various Romanian cities. No wonder there's 1 in Timisoara as well. Like all the others, this 1 too is the gift of Italy to the people of Romania and symbolizes their unity with Latinity.

Exploration day

by Mique

Timisoara is a very nice city to be in. Loved in very much. I started out in the morning from the hotel after having had eggs at the restaurant next to the hotel. Apparently they always serve breakfast to the hotel guests.

From there i walked the stretch to the centre again. This time though i went through one of the parks. Ending up at the cathedral at the end of piata Victoriei. Of course i took a fair few pictures before i continued to cross the piata. From there i made my way via piata Libertatii to Piata Unirii. And this is truly a very very nice square. Around it are beautiful buildings. Most of the late 19th century i think. In the middle is grass and a statue. On one site is a small fountain a bit lower then the rest of the piata. And around the grass in a kind of oval there are stones that you can sit on and enjoy the sun. Which i did. In plenty! I think it took me at least an hour and a half to disconnect me from the spell of the piata. I visited the small cathedral on one site of the piata. Then made my way to the bastion. And spend some more time in one of the gardens. Timisoara has plenty of them.

Then i made my way back to the piata Unirii and had a coffee on one of the few terraces that are there. It has just the right mix of terraces and piata. Very nice and very enjoyable. Besides, the sun was shining and it was kind of hot.

From the piata Unirii i walked through the town with no apparent destination. Just taking in the town and its people but eventually i made my way to Huniades Palace. It is a museum and i wanted to get in. It was a bit before 4 o'clock and officially the museum wouldn't close till 4.30. But no way i got in.

So i made my way to Tokes Church to see for myself where the revolution had started. It is marked by plaques outside the buidling. But the church was closed and the house where the priest used to live is private property and not available for visits. I must admit i found this all a bit disappointing.

I went back to Piata Victoriei. Found a bookstore that i could not resist perusing through but managed to get out without a new book. Probably because of the very limited selection of english books.

I sat my butt on a garden bench at piata victoriei and enjoyed the sun some more. Finally had a bite to eat. And the weather was enjoyable enough to do so outside. Made my way back to the hotel in order to be ready for the next day. Baile Herculane i have decided.
