Affordability question

by orlandoglobetrotter

I'm trying to find a European destination that is still on the affordable side in U.S. dollars. That's getting harder to do. Can anyone that is familiar with it tell me if things are as cheap there (in dollars) as I've heard they were? Also, does anyone have any recommendations on how to get there from the U.S. cheaply. Thanks..

Hi,
I have bad answer for you, Romania is an expensive east country! I recommend you our neighbor Bulgaria, it's much cheaper than Romania.
All the best,
Sandu

This question all depends on what you consider affordable really. Everyone's version
It is not as cheap as it was a few years ago.There are still some cheap places in Romania to visit, and stay..but the cities and tourist destinations are not in this category anymore.

How much you willing to spend daily for your budget, and I can let you know if Romania is realistic or not.

Cheers,
Christian

Re: Affordability question

I can get an idea of airfare and hotel on Kayak or Travelocity. I guess I'm trying to find out about the cost of eating out, (on the) ground transportation (outside of Bucharest where I know taxis are cheap and subways are available), activities, and souvenirs. Activities and souvenirs don't lend themselves to thinking in terms of cost per day but food and ground transport do. So I will throw out that I would consider $50 (U.S.) per couple total including both lunch and dinner (we aren't big breakfast eaters) and $10 per couple for ground transport to be "cheap." Thanks for your help.

Re: Affordability question

I went there in March from Orlando Florida to Dublin to Milan, to Bucharest. I spent a overnight waiting in Malepensa in Milan for a Easy jet flight in the morning. At that time, It cost me about $350 to Dublin, $80 to Milan, and then about $75 to Bucharest. I stayed with friends so I don't know about lodging, but we did go to Brasov and the old Royal Castle and that was cheap since we had a car. The food cost in Bucharest was almost the same as in the USA. Having said all that, I then went Back to Milan and took a FLYLAL flight to Vilnius Lithuania where prices are quite cheap. You could also go to Riga and Liepaja Latvia where things are cheaper than Western Europe. I was there last October. Better hurry as all these places will catch up to western Europe soon. Bulgaria might also be a good choice.

What a great answer. Do you mind sharing how you got from Orlando to Dublin and Dublin to Milan so cheaply (which airlines). Also, can I ask if you went a different way home because of existing travel plans or if it was due to finding other airfare deals that were worth the detours? If because or other airfare deals, would you mind sharing specifics on the return legs as well. Thanks...

Travel Tips for Bucharest

Patriarhia Romana yard

by gosiaPL

This is one of the smaller buildings in the Patriarchal complex standing just in front of the Patriarchal Cathedral.

I was really taken by Romanian porch architecture in numerous places in Bucharest, and this one was one of the finest examples.

Martisor!

by draguza

The old name of March, ”martisor”, reminds the traditional custom of celebrating the spring by wearing red and white colored braids. The Romanian word “martisor” comes from “matisor” (the buds which appear in spring time). On March 1: “Martisor” (little March)people share martisors; red and white ribbon handmade flowers, which symbolize love and purity. The martisors are attached to the clothes on the chest and are worn the whole March month. Thus, people show they are happy for nature's rebirth. It is also said that martisors bring luck for the entire year ahead.

A fine department store

Before 1945, this building houses the famous Galleries Lafayette; today it is a fine 5-floor department store, centrally situated. Jewellery, watches, carpets, hand made craft items, clothes, useful small items. $100 - $200

The laptarie, or 'milk bar'...

by Tom1971

The laptarie, or 'milk bar' which is on the top floor of the National Theatre in central Bucharest. Facing the National Theatre, go round the back to the left where you will find a set of double doors. Go in, find the lift and take it up to the top floor. The laptarie is up a short flight of steps on your left. They often have live jazz, blues and rock music here and you'll meet a lot of interesting characters. The terrace, which covers most of the theatre's roof is open in the summer. Whatever.

Gara de Nord (North Station)

by Fam_Stoica

Gara de Nord is the largest railway station in Romania.

The Targoviste Station (initial name) was opened to the public on 15/27 November 1870 with the occasion of the opening of the Roman - Galati - Bucharest - Pitesti line; it was built by the Strousberg Concession between 1868-1870 after a plan proposed and approved by the Technical Council of the Public Works Ministry, led by Dumitru Ghica.

After several modernization works, Gara de Nord has now 14 lines (3 of them with high platforms), enlarged waiting rooms, departure/arrival on-screen displays, touch-screen information systems and electronic ticket sales system.
