Romania What to Pack

  • -10C in winter and +35C in summer

    The winter in Romania can be cold. It has a reputation of being one of the colder regions of Europe in the winter. Temperatures will hover freezing quite commonly. Many of the buildings are older, so they can be prone to drafts and/or poor heating.On the opposite side of things, the summer can be very hot and humid. The climate can be very...

  • Pack light and bring comfortable shoes

    A backpack for daily trips and a duffel bag (expandable if possible, so you have room for presents to take back home with you) or a suitcase . Summers and hot in Romania, so if you travel during the summer months, make sure you have a pair of good sandals (good for walking a lot, I mean!), sport shoes, few T-shirts, 1 nice shirt or a dress, 2 pair...

  • Packing List

    Unless you want a dose of Montezumas revenge, invest in a portable water filter or at least take some puri-tabs or boil the water. Spring water from one of Romania's many, many mineral springs is fine in my experience but the tap water is diabolical. If you are travelling in Spring, Summer or Autumn, especially when out in the great outdoors, make...

  • Guide book and map

    A good small guide book and map.really are handy, if you are travelling independantly. I entered Romania by night train from Munich, staying Arad, Brasov,Bucharest, and Constanta.

  • ....don't forget your digicam!

    This depends on your needs and the way you decide to travel! Umbrella or/and a raincoat are essential as weather can be rainy even in early summer.If you come in Romania in June, keep in mind that weather can reach +30 C, so shortsleeves are needed. Everything is available. Pharmacies are numerous at least in large cities Memory, memory, memory...

  • Mosquito spray

    If going in the summer, bring alot of cool clothes. I was told it didnt get that hot, but it sure does, the average is 30 degrees this year. The mosquito spray is vital, I didnt bring any last time, and was brutally attacked. We couldnt find spray anywhere, and had a allergic reation to the bites. It was not to pleasant. I heard that they now...

  • Toilet Paper, It's better than American...

    Okay so the notion of packing toilet paper may seem a bit trifling to those travelers accustomed to the Four Seasons, the Penisula or even the Hilton line of International hotels. Nevertheless, in Romania, I recommend that you travel with no less than half a roll of toilet paper with you at all times. Similar to most European countries be...

  • Packing List

    Take a good rucksack.All here is for those, who would spent their time in the mountains, as you can definitely buy everything down in the towns. In hot summer you will need light but good fixing shoes (no bitumen streets) and some T-shirts and shorts. But if you are visiting churches wear better trousers. 1.antidiarrheal's2.Who was not vaccinated...

  • Pack light

    Try to get there with just one carry-on bag so you can use your luggage allowance on the plane to bring two big boxes full of souvenirs home! There's lots of walking on uneven pavement and cobblestone streets in Romania, so I suggest no sandals, opting instead for comfortable sneakers or shoes. If you plan a telecabina ride up the mountain, make...

  • Waterproof everything when backpacking

    Yes, somethimes the rain does not stop when you pray. It was raining for a couple of days without stopping and we had nothing dry left. However there was no village on our way. A good lesson - always leave your last T-shirt for a festive occasion dry :) rather walk in wet but sleep in dry one, it will not stop raining, believe me Take some...

  • Packing List

    Bring cash instead of traveler's checks. Even if you plan to visit only large cities - something that I would advise against, personally - I would still suggest that you consider cash. (It is all I bring). Cash is king, especially US dollars. If you do bring cash, bring clean, relatively crisp notes. You will not be able to exchange torn currency...

  • Bring extra stuff

    If you want to help out an orphanage, collect warm clothes and bedlinen and bring them along as handluggage. If you tell the airline when checking in, they might allow you the excess baggage for free. I travelled with a group of 7 and we all had at least 5-10 kilo extra which was allowed on board for free. The Romanian orphans and caretakers...

  • Packing List

    Resort When packing, try to think of everything you may need during your trip, including for example toilet paper, shoeshine, etc. Don't take anything for granted and don't rely on buying stuff, because you may not find it just when and where you need it.

  • Packing List

    A backpack, handbag or a suitcase will do it just fine, as all of them are just common among Romanians. Just avoid to take too expensive stuff, as it is not a wise idea to stand up as a foreigner and to temp people with things they'll never afford to buy. Weather is generally mild in Bucharest, with an average of -5C in January and +30 / +35C in...

  • Packing List

    As always pack light. Here you won't find lockers in train stations as you would in more frequently traveled european countries..ex: switzerland, Germany.Your bags will be with you until you find your hotel. Have warm clothes. When you get high up in the mountains of Transylvania it is very cold! Waterproof jacket and shoes are also important but,...

  • Packing List

    Few VT members need these reminders. But for the non-VT members who browse these pages (and for those of us, myself included, who may need occasional reminders), I offer the following suggestions:Bring a little patience. Things don't work here like they do at home--wherever home may be. If you're from the US (in particular), please remember that...
