    Buying a train ticket in Romania

    Buying a train ticket in Romania can be a bit complicated.

    First of all train fares depend on the type of train. The faster the train the more expensive the ticket. In addition to this a seat reservation is obligatory to most of the trains.

    Train tickets are sold in the station office only about 1 hour before the train departs, this is due to the slow seat allocation and reservation system.

    An alternative is to buy your tickets at one of the CFR booking offices (Agentia de Voiaj CFR).

    These can be found in most towns and sell tickets in advance but usually not for same day travel.

    Cluj-Napoca's CFR booking office can be found at the Piata Mihai Viteazul 20, right in the city centre.

  • Cluj Airport: Expect Delays!

    by brandi05 Written Jun 8, 2008

    The international airport of Cluj-Napoca isn't just small, it's really tiny. This results in total chaos if more than one airplane has landed or is about to depart - which happens quite frequently thanks to rapidly increasing air traffic. Check-in, passport control, baggage claim etc. can hardly cope with the passengers of one mid-sized aircraft, let alone two.

    A new airport building is still under construction as of June 2008. Until it's fully operational, expect major delays and plan accordingly.

    so safety and quiet... but the most attention you have to pay is once you go to the ticket glass window and ask for it... the first of all is so curious ..the cue is on the right side of the window not in front of !! i lost my turn cos i didnt know,...and dont try to ask people cos they dont speak a word in english lol
    So now you know what to do...then when we ask for the ticket you will recieve some cardboards, each one for different ways of the journey and you are charged basically by the kilometers you do ...so u will take in your hand two or three cardboards

    An international airport is available, 10 km East of the city. Frequent connections to Italy (Verona, Treviso, Bologna, Firenze, Bergamo) through Carpat Air, and to Germany (Frankfurt. Munich) via Lufthansa and the national airline: Tarom.
    The Romanian railways have good connections to the main cities, but you must remember to make reservations in advance, because it may very well happen the train is full and you're not allowed to catch it.

    The best way and the most exciting,in my oppinion, to get to Cluj-Napoca is by car.From the country border in Bors,the best way to get to Cluj is by following the E60 highway and it leads you straight here.
    In the city,I'd also choose car, but for sightseeing walking would do.Or bicycling.

    Trolley in Cluj

    Really out dated transportation system. I found it easier just to walk on foot. I had gotten on a map from a business guide I got from a hotel.
