Arad Warnings and Dangers

    by bodo8 Written Apr 25, 2012

    We planned a trip around eastern europe by car, and one of the destinations should have been Transilvania. We entered Romania from Szeged (Hungary), and we decided to spend a logistic night stop in Arad. The first impression after having passed the border was absolutely NOT positive. Be careful, at the border you have to buy a ticket, which allows you to drive in Romania. It costs only few EUR but the waiting time is high (about one hour). During this time you will be really attacked by little kids asking you for money. They are quite aggressive and won't let you go without having paid them!
    Unfortunately that's not all. Once we've arrived in Arad we noticed that something wasn't exactely as expected. Perhaps it was only a bad feeling, but it seemed that everybody was studying us in order to find the right moment to kidnap us. Locals in the hotel confirmed to us that it is a dangerous city. I wouldn't go out alone, expecially in the evening/night.
