Howdy there
well if you are resident in Romania it shouldn't be a problem to obtain a visa.
but its still depends on what passport you got.
your best option is to contact the Hungarian Embassy in Romania
here is the link

good luck

No-one can tell you if you need a visa unless we know what citizenship you have.

Hungary is a Schengen state, so you may or may not need a Hungarian Schengen visa depending on your citizenship.

http://hungarianconsulate.co.nz/visa_en.html might be useful.

The Hungarian Consulates in Romania are:

Str. I.L.Caragiale nr. 26A


Piata Unirii nr.23. 1st floor

Travel Tips for Bucharest

Romanian Government

by gosiaPL

This is the Victoria Palace (Palatul Victoriei) which now houses the Romanian government but was build in 1937 as the seat of the Foreign Ministry.

I have the impression that any building big enough can be called a "palace" in Bucharest. Can anyone explain why? Personally, I don't see anything particularly exceptional in this building... other than its address in Victory Sq.
Grand name but why the "palace"...? :-o

Candle cabinets at Stavropoleos Church

by gosiaPL

A completely different idea for candle lighting just outside the Stavropoleos Church.

I've never seen such little cabinets, good protection from wind and rain. Just as at the Patriarchal Cathedral, also here people were coming in to light a candle and say a little prayer in the church.

Baba Novac neighborhood

by kek4la

This is from another of the dull neighborhoods full of tall apartment buildings.
Still, I like how this tall building apears when one takes the 70 or 79 line downtown.
I have to say these neighborhoods look much better in the summer, when there is a lot of vegetation.

a night stroll on Calea Victoriei

by anaochiana about just enjoy..

The beautifull historic buildings -CEC,The National Museum of history, The military place, Odeon theatre , The atheneum ..spoted in warm light - so romantic..perfect for a night stroll just try and enjoy..

Public transport

by josephescu

Public transport is cheap (1,2lei/ride). one ticket is used for every surface bus you get in, notwithstanding how many stations. In orther words, if you need to change 3 buses, 3 tickets. Better take a taxi!
Buses and trams are more frequent and serve most areas, but in peak hours can become so full they resemble a cattle truck.

The subway system is fairly civilised but slow and not comprehensive.
