Cimpina is on the rail route between Bucharest and Brasov, 20 km south of Sinaia.
Travel by train from Bucharest takes 1h 20minutes. However, only second class trains called Accelerat stop in Campina, Rapid of Inter-City ones do not. I would not advice travelling by a Personal train, cause this one is very slow and stops in every single station.
At the time of my visit, there were two morning trains (7,30 am and 9,30 am) heading to Campina and two afternoon trains to go back to ~Bucharest (17,30 and 18,30). Check exact timetable at the link below.

If you'll stay longer in Campina, you can try to join our “karateka” on the "Dojo".
You’ll be for sure impressed by the hard training they are doing, especially the 4 yrs old “fighters” :), three times per week (or even more often ) dreaming for a medal and improving their self-control and fight skills.
In a small city like this, there are not so many options for the kids and this is why, a lot of them are choosing to go to Aiko for training.
Despite of the “size” of the club and the poor conditions, the results are amazingly good.

Favorite thing: To the communists dislike, many towns and cities in Romania maintained a “bourgeois” look in their centres even after 40 years of communist “revolution”. Hence, it was decided local authorities to “deal” with this “problem” and make a facelift of their own town according to political accepted criteria.
This is how, in many cities and towns (Bucharest, Constanta, Sibiu, Craiova, Focsani, Targoviste, Tg. Mures, Campina, etc.), similar central squares have appeared around mid 1980's, all characterised a common feature: "concentration of political, cultural and social life of the town" - administration buildings (town hall, prefecture, police), a “culture house” for “artistic” manifestations (especially the ones related to the personality cult of Ceausescu), a hotel, a restaurant and a cafeteria, and as many blocks of flats as possible.
Such a town centre is often referred to as “civic centre”. The one in Campina bears all these characteristics.
