    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.

    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.

Especially the rural life, just because you don’t have to rely on busses taking you around; busses that do not have connections between all valliages in the countryside. In larger cities, except Bucharest, biking can also be a great experience. There are, in...
