    By direct train from Budapest to Sibiu

    by budapest8 Updated Jun 7, 2010
    Early morning at Budapest Railway Station


    Although I haven't taken this train, it passes my house everyday.This is the only train that goes direct without having to change.All trains to Romania do take a long time, doesn't matter where you are going. Anyway it can be a relaxing way to travel and let the train take the strain. If your coming from any western European city by train, then you will probably end up taking a train through Budapest.The IC 373 / EN 373 train leaves Budapest-Keleti pu (Budapest Eastern
    Railway Station) everyday 11:13 a.m. and arriving at Sibiu Train Station (Gara Sibiu) at 21:10.p.m. The 10 hour and 430 Kilometre train journey takes you through the Hungarian towns of Szolnok, Mezötur, Gyoma, Mezöbereny, Bekescsaba then the Hungarian border town of Lököshaza.
    Continuing on after a 15 minute stop the Romanian cities and towns of Curtici,Arad, Deva, Simeria, Vintu de Jos, Sebes Alba then pulls into Sibiu just after a quarter past nine in the evening, if being the summertime, a little daylight remains so avoid wearing necklaces of garlic and clutching a large silver cross and a perfume a la Holy Water to keep of any vampires..he he

    Traveling by train through Transylvania

    Traveling by train in Transylvania

    In april of 2002 I traveled by train through Transylvania. Trains are not as frequent as in Western Europe, but it is a good and fast way to enjoy the landscape and meet people. Be careful for the exceptions in the timetable. Some trains don't go in weekends or holidays, others only in the weekends etc. Sometimes it is better to hitchhike. Many people hitchhike, so nobody will be surprised. And don't forget to give the driver some money. That's what they expect. Check out my website that I made about my trip.

    By train: There are many trains from Brasov, Bucuresti,...For Sighisoara you'll have to change trains at either Copsa Mica or Medias
    Get around on foot. The center is rather compact and the train station is only 2 minutes from the center. Easy!!

  • The Liar's Bridge

    A view of the Liar's Bridge--so-called because the very short iron bridge is supposed to collapse if anyone standing on it ever tells a lie. It got that reputation because when new, merchants often met there to transact business. Unfortunately, Ceausescu gave a speech from the bridge and it's still standing!

    Best way of going to Sibiu is by either your own car or by train. For travellers from abroad they should choose an intercity because the quality of other Romanian trains lacks a lot.
    Best way is with your own car. But you can also make use of the buses in the city. Some years ago these buses had a bad reputation for not being in time, but maybe this emproved. Anyway you only need the bus to go to the Museum of Romanian Village and to the Zoo. To see the old city you only need to walk.
