Focsani Things to Do

  • Christmas Lights

    During the winter holidays, the streets of Focsani are full of Christmas lights. Practically on every important street in the town you drive under a sea of lights. Some say this effort is due to the megalomania of the authorities.

The obelisk in the center of the square is dedicated to the Union of Moldova and Muntenia in 1859, the most important historical event for this city, since Focsani used to be on the...

  • Unirii Park

    Well if you got to Focsani, you might as well take a walk through the town, and since you did that , it's very possible that you walk through Unirii Park. It is a bowery park, rather small and always crowded. In the autumn, it is the site of the Wine festival. This event leaves the park in a mess for several days, but for the rest of the year it's...

    It's pretty easy to get from Bucharest to Focsani.
    The easiest way is most probably by train. All train starting in Bucharest's North Station(Gara de Nord) going in Moldova region(Iasi, Botosani, Suceava, Bicaz) go through Focsani.
    The best trains are InterCity, they go fast, they are clean and confortable. But the Rapid train are quite good. A trip from Bucharest to Focsani takes aproximately 2 hours and 20 minutes.
    Pictured is a DMU InterCity train.

    This is the biggest store in Focsani. It was built in communist times but today it is owned by a private company, which helped it not to go bankrupt and to be somewhat modernized.

    This picture is taken in front of the building where I used to live. These dogs wouldn't bite me, but if you were someone they didn't know and you walked there at night they might.

Focsani Off The Beaten Path

    by kek4la Written Feb 11, 2005

    "Off the beaten path" is an improper expression, being that the whole city of Focsani is off the beaten path. But anyways...
    This is the Unirea(Union) High School. I studied here from the fifth grade until graduation.
    In 1859 the provinces Moldova and Muntenia united to for Romania. Focsani was on the border of the two provinces, so it was marked by the event. Consequentely, Focsani now has Unirii Square, Unirea Hotel, Unirii Boulevard, Unirea HS, so on...
    The high school was established in 1866 and it moved in the current building in 1900.
    The building has been undergoing renovation works for 8 years now. Aparentely, the work is aproaching its end.
    It has become tradition for the students to scratch their names on the red bricks that cover the building.

  • Typical street scene in the summer

    This is how a street in Focsani looks like during the summer. It's very nice to see all the green trees and it also spares the eye from all the gray buildings. After the earthquake of 1977, 4-5 storey apartament building have been built at a high rate in Focsani until 1990, when communism collapsed. As seen in the picture, people having apartments...
