If you want to get on the coast, it is good to take a bus, or a taxi (hi,hi). The train line Bucharest - Constanta is under construction for upgrading to high speed trains, therefore the trip takes more of 4 h and a half... The bus trip takes 3 h and a half at the same price, 50 lei (12 euros).
In the coastal area you can visit Constanta, the second largest Romanian city, Mamaia the best and largest Romanian resort and the Danube Delta, a wild area of incredible beauty. To see Danube Delta must travel by bus from Constanta to Tulcea and thence by boat.

Have a nice trip,
Sandu

If you want to see the country side, you can take the train north from Bucharest through Ploiesti and into the mountains by Sinaia and Brasov. The mountains stops are very nice.

You do know Romania is a big country :)If there's any particular area you're interested in, perhaps we could give you more specific answers.

Generally, train can take you anywhere. Continuing the post above, you can take the train to Sinaia, Sibiu, Brasov, Sighisoara etc. However, there are buses (like the one Sandu mentioned to Constanta) that can take you to certain places faster than trains.

Once you arrive in the train stations of these big cities you can take local buses to go to the real country side...

Well you can go to Mogosoaia, very close to Bucharest for a short day-trip. You could also try Sinaia if you leave first thing in the morning.

Brasov and Constanta would be too eaxhausting for only a day.

Re: help needed

by hopsctotch

Thank you is Mogosoaia easy to get to by train? cant wait to visit this beautiful country, I will be staying with friends in Voluntari so just relying on public transport for visits on daily basis.Thanks for any more tips.

Re: help needed

by Delia_Madalina

Mogosoaia is easy to get to by bus. :)

You have to take a bus from Piata Chibrit (1 Mai Metro Station). The bus costs not more than 0,8 euro and it drops you off in front of the main alley which leads to the palace. It's only 12 kms away.

And if you wnat to know more abou the place: http://www.palatebrancovenesti.ro/en/

Hope this helps.

Corner Building At Rosetti Square

by edvin_br

Beside all the famous sights of Bucharest, that appears in every travel guide there are many other beautiful classical buildings that hide in less famous areas of Bucharest, but i believe that they show a great part of the town... maybe the "Natural" Bucharest with many trees, low denisty and beautiful architecture.
For example, I chossed the building in the picture:
This lovely corner building situated at Rosetti square that seems to be very elegant and pleasent place, there is even a small park and a statue inside of it at the square.
It is situated only a few minouts walk from the University square.

An Icon of Communist Shopping?

by roomania about Unirea Shopping Center

Located right on Piata Unirii, the Unirea Shopping Center is in itself a testament to the determination of Communist development. Built in 1976, it was rumored that Ceausescu had built this after visiting New York City and seeing Macy's Department store on Herald Square.

Often touted by locals as the "original" shopping center and therefore the best. However, its supremacy has recently been called into question, with the development of the Bucharest Mall and the Orhideea Shopping complex. Nevertheless, its definitley worth taking a look.

On the ground floor, one can find such western stores and fast food restaurants, such as The Body Shop, McDonalds and KFC.

Buses, Trolleybuses and Trams

by violeta13

Even though the public transport network is cheap, extensive and reliable, taking a bus, trolleybus or tram can be a headache because they are very crowded (especially on the rush hours)!
A ticket valid for one journey cost 0.25 E and must be purchased before climbing aboard, then punched in one of the strange looking devices located all over the vehicle (watch how others do it first)
