  • Metro (Subway)

    Bucharest Transportation

    Bucharest has one of the best metro systems in Europe with a simple fare system, clean stations and even cleaner cars. It is surely my preferred way of getting around in Bucharest. Every trip has the same fare, no need to pay again if you change lines. There are no single tickets, just two-trip – passes, 10 trip – passes and passes which allow...

    Bucharest is well served by Henri Coanda International airport with connections to the most important European destinations. TAROM and Wizz are the two largest airlines. Baneasa Airport, which was once the stronghold of low-cost airlines such as Wizz, has been closed for scheduled traffic and now handles private and business aircraft only.   The...

    Bucharest Transportation

    Official taxi In February this year Dave Mooney and I flew Easy Jet to the lightly snow covered Bucharest Otopeni Airport. First lesson of the day was how not to be conned by the official taxis having first been warned about taxi touts. The tourist information agent told us to use the ‘yellow’ coloured official taxis, which we did. What they...

  • Taxies

    Bucharest Transportation

    First of all, the pictures posted here are very old, some of them even 10 years old, Bucharest doesn't look like this anymore in most of the parts. As a simple rule to follow with the taxies, use only certified companies, like MERIDIAN TAXI, MONDIAL TAXI, COBALCESCU TAXI, SPEED TAXI, TAXI 2000, CRISTAXI, NEXT, GRANT, CONFORT, D'ARTEX, TAXI LEONE,...

  • Bucharest buses

    Bucharest Transportation

    Busses in Bucharest are quite well organized. The only real problem is the lack of knowing which busline will take you where. The busses do indicate their final destination but routes are rather difficult to figure out since there are no timetables. Times on which busses drive are also not indicated but since you are in a big city this is not much...

    Bucharest Transportation

    Know thy currency. Romania recently changed their currency, and so you definitely don't want to over pay them for gas. For now, gas prices are shown in both the old & new currency, which is simply divided by 10,000! See the picture.. Their octane is much higher than what is typical for the US.

    Bucharest Transportation

    if you are looking for good maps at reasonable prices, you are really walking a fine line here in romania. book stores often have good maps of cities like brasov, suceava and cluj-napoca, but if you really want a serios map, you need to go to the bookstores below piata universitate (head toward the train station under the square) where they sell...

The advantage is there is a bus from Gura to Sighet each morning you can find the time when you get to Gura.yes its a day ride but a nice drive over the gutine pass. The train from Succeava to Sighet changing in Salva is a bit of a nightmare long and...

  • Belgrade to Bucharest

    Me, I would take the overnight sleeper, but if you must travel by road, then allow more than ten hours. The route through the portile de fier is probably the best route, but Romanian roads are being renovated so you could hit unsigned roadworks. And then there are the truck drivers on bonus and the carts with licence plates and no lights. If you go...

  • Airport Taxis

    Only take airport taxis that are designated and are queing at the door of the Otopeni Airport. There are many drivers trying to scam tourists here. The fare should only be 50cent/km anything more and they're trying to rip you off. Just use common sense and you'll be fine though!

    Hitchhiking is somehow common in Romania. Commuters, backpackers and other people on the budget use the regional buses or just stay at the exit of large cities with signs pointing their destination.
