Bucharest in January, Too Cold???

by dutch2220

Hello all,

I am thinking of traveling to Bucharest (and around Romania,) in mid-January for a couple of weeks. I have done some research as far as weather is concerned, but would like to know from those who have experienced it if that time of year is too cold to really enjoy things?

Living in Los Angeles I crave the winter months (it's always sunshine here,) and I do enjoy the snow and ice for a change!

Thanks for any words of wisdom!

If you enjoy snow and ice, certainly it won't be too cold. You just need to dress accordingly - wearing several layers is the way to go here, and remember some proper winter shoes (too often I've seen tourists wearing thin summery/atumn shoes in winter, which must be dreadful). Take some breaks from being outdoors, I'm sure there are plenty of nice caf├ęs to be found, museums to be explored etc.

Don't let the weather stop you from travelling where you want to*!


* Unless we're talking dangerous weather, but that's rather unlikely :-P

Thank you so much for the advice! I'll get out my warm clothes (that I never get to wear in Los Angeles,) and hit the streets. And...my boots are ready to go!
All the best,
David

January could be either cold (0 degrees) or very cold (-10 degrees) in January - that being temps daytime. We had some heavy snow winters and some no snow winter. If you get a heavy snow winter than it's more difficult to travel but the landscapes are great. Driving on Romanian roads on heavy snow and ice is a harsh adventure, you can be blocked not because your fault but because some drivers don't take appropiate measures and if one truck goes off you can stay there and spend a day in the car in snow :)

I alwas say the best time to visit is March-June, when spring brings flowers and 15-20 temps or in mild autumns Sept-Oct when it's 20-25.

As previously mentioned, we can't tell the weather for January, it might be like the last 2 years, mild snow, but cold it will be for sure - get warm clothes and Goretex shoes as the snow melts and that's water :)

December 1st, National Celebration

by codrutz

The National Day of Romania is on December 1st, this is after the revolution in 1989. Before that it was August 23rd. On December 1st 1918 the three parts - Moldova, Transilvania si Tara Romaneasca - formed the united Romania. The signing of the unity was made in Alba Iulia. December 1st is national holiday so it's a non-working day. Many people go to the Arch of Triumph where the military parade is going under it, on the long 2km boulevard from Casa Presei to Piata Victoriei.

Check out the picture set, the blond smiling woman is Elena Udrea, a young (she's my age) politian in close relation with the current president of Romania. Next year (2008) we will have elections so it's an opportunity to increase popularity by taking pictures with people :)

Take a walk

by ThomasIkarus

Bucharest has many different looks to it.
I have seen some very modern architecture as well as some very old buildings.
Sometimes I just listen to music as I walk around town and take pictures.

From Gray Department Store To Cool Shopping Center

by edvin_br about Unirii Shopping Center

Its not easy to define Unirii shopping center, it was built under the communist regime when Ceaucescu built his "favorite project"-Unirii blvd. Since that times it went under a lot of chnges and today its one of the most bustling shopping centers of the capital.
Opening hours:
Monday-Saturday: 9-21, Sunday 9-15 The shopping center has huge potential has it one of the biggest in that part of Europe (there are more then 200 store and restaurant places) but yet the level of the stores nedd to get a bit better and the entertainment need to be finished until it will get a really good reputation.

CROWDED BUSES!

by draguza

Bucharest has a complex city transit system, which combines buses, trolleybuses, trams and subways. The transit system covers virtually all areas of the city. It tends to be crowded during peak hours! I remember always had to struggle to get in one!!
