Train & bike

by jatim

Hello,

In august I 'll fly in to Bucharest Baneasa aiport. I would like to travel by train to Tulcea, taking my bike (unpacked) with me. Does anyone know if Romanian trains on that traject do take bikes? If they do, do I have to take a ticket for the bike?
thanks,

Re: Train & bike

by davidlayba

in august there is no direct train from bucharest to tulcea,
also you have to change trains at "Medgidia".
the fast way with train is to use the dily train [nr' E 1636] that depart from
GARA DE NORD A train station at bucharest 08:35 and arrived to Medgidia at 12:37
and then take the train [nr' R 8653] at 16:04 and arrived to tulcea at 19:33.

in thos train there is no speshial vagon for passenger and bike like in europe but it need to be a luggage vagon.

I dont know about a ticket for the bike.

the romanian railway web is :

www.cfrcalatori.ro

I remember that I see a picture of two romanian people with 2 bike but they take a sleeper vagon with 2 bed and they take out the two wheel, like that it was more easy to put them in the cabin

There is a direct train from Bucharest to Tulcea, but it doesn't leave from Bucharest North station like most other long-distance trains, it leaves from Bucharest Obor - the #1681 train starts daily from Bucharest Obor at 5.37AM and gets to Tulcea at 12.21PM.

Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to have a luggage coach - but it might be possible to "persuade" the train's conductors to allow you and your bike aboard ;-)

Few years ago, I used to carry my bike with me be train, from Bucharest to the Carpathian Mountains. An easy way to do this is to tip the person taking care of the luggage car :) or to just pull the two wheels off and place the bike as a luggage in the dedicated place. What I would recommend is asking in the North Railway Station and they might make you buy a ticket or the luggage, go with the bike to the luggage car (even so, I used to lock it there tight to something stable, just for safety)

Let us know how you'll proceed. :)
all best,
radu

Travel Tips for Bucharest

Getting around

by codrutz

Unfortunately Bucharest does not have a travel and discount pass, like most of the other capitals in Europe has. And neither does not have a universal public transport ticket. So, for every mean of transport (listed below) you should get a valid ticket or a pass for longer time periods.

METRO (Subway)
This is the fastest way to get from one distant point to another in Bucharest. The city is pretty large - as in not easy to walk from quarter to quarter - and crowded when talking about roads and cars. The subway network is covering pretty much of the central area and lines to the exits. It is nor the biggest or the smallest subway network in Europe, but it is reliable and certainly looking and smelling nicer than the Parisian one.

Prices:
- 2 rides ticket: 20.000 LEI (2 RON) - that's about 0,56 EURO
- 10 rides ticket: 65.000 LEI (6,5 RON) - that's about 1,82 EUR - best one for 2-3 days trip in Bucharest .. smallest cost/trip
- 1 month pass: 200.000 LEI (20 RON) - that's about 5,6 EUR
- 1 day pass: 30.000 LEI (3 RON) - that's about 0,84 EUR - use this one if you want to make more than five trips during a day

Tickets can be found in every subway station, at cashiers (no automatic vending).

Doughnut store "Gogoasa infuriata"

by codrutz

"Gogoasa infuriata" means "The angry doughnut" :)) Seems like people are still eating doughnuts and preffer local brands than the bigger internationsl chain "Dunkin' Doughnuts", maybe because the local recipes are better or maybe because this are cheaper.

Modern Shopping In Bucharest

by jgacis about Bucuresti Mall

The Bucuresti Mall provides four levels of shopping that you can find in many modern city malls. A center atrium with a glass ceiling and escalators provide the main starting point to begin your shopping travels. The upper floor provides a food court area where they serve some great Italian ice cream! There are numerous clothing and retail stores of many merchandise available. Prices are reasonable and vary throughout the mall. I bought several modern music (from Romania) CDs, the club music type, for about US$5 each. A Romanian movie DVD I bought was about US$26.

When electronic music takes over

by Delia_Madalina about The Gate

While taking a night walk with some friends on Victoria Bvd , we met a group of friendly Spanish guys. They asked us about The Gate so maybe this club became famous over night...
The Gate is THE CLUB if you're a fan of minimal, electronic and such types of music... not my case however. The club is quite crowded on Fridays and Sundays.
No entrance fee for the girls, guys have to pay ~ 3 EURO.
Cola: 2 EURO
Bottle of wine: 10 EURO
Cocktails: 5 EURO

You can also go for a cup of coffee during summer or watch football games live on huge screens. the usual for discos

Walking

by timtregenza

Bucharest is not the best city to walk around, simply because it is so spread out (in contrast to some Spanish cities for example).

Illustrated is an aide(?) to crossing the road - an animated green man telling you how many seconds you have left!
