    Romanian train

    As we were travelling around by car, we had no need to use the Train.
    I did notice one of the Trains servicing this area, looked to be rather old. It may have been a "Personal (P)," slow local train, that stops in the smallest villages, even in the middle of no-where, they are said to be dirty. Trains called "Accelerat" (marked "Ac", or "A") are just a little better than the "Personal," with the stations fewer and the trains a little bit more comfortable.
    As you can see by the photo, it wasn't one of those real fast Trains.

    A bus on its way to the train station

    City buses are very cheap way to get from one to another place in Satu Mare, but its somewhat not efficient because the city center can be seen by walking... and if you need a longer ride a taxi is a better solution i believe (taxies are still very cheap in Satu Mare) and its much more comfertable than bus.
    Most of the bus stations has been replaced lately to new ones. The buses are still in updgrading process, some are refurbished, but yet there are many old buses that need a lot of work to be done on them.

    The Train Station

    Satu Mare Central, a typical Transilvanian station

    Satu Mare is an importent railway junction because of te cities idustries and because the county borders Hungary and Ukraine.
    There are 2 stations in Satu Mare. The Central station is the old one and its located at Grivitei strret. The station is a typical Transilvanian station and trains from all around Romania arrive there every day (including 2 night trains from Bucharest) and ther are also international trains to/from Hungary and Ukraine. The station is not far from the city Center but you can take a taxi or a bus that are both located just outsdie the station.
    The second station, called Satu Mare South is located at the other side of the Somes river and its used only by local trains.

    Taxies

    Taxies waiting for passengers

    Taxies in my opinion is the best way to get from one place to the other in Satu Mare. they are very comfortable (the taxies in Satu Mare are much beter then those that can be found in Bucharest for example...), can be found everywhere and the most importent - they are cheap.
    Taxi companies:
    Galant telephone: 942 or 947
    Nova telephone: 946 or 768.560
    Cielo telephone: 944 or 761.861
