Tips to travel

Traveling to Romania offers a diverse range of experiences, from stunning landscapes and historic landmarks to vibrant cities and cultural traditions. Here are some tips to help you make the most of your trip:

Visa Requirements: Check if you need a visa to enter Romania based on your nationality and the purpose of your visit. EU citizens can enter with a valid passport or ID card. Visitors from other countries should check the visa requirements in advance.

Best Time to Visit: Romania experiences a continental climate, with hot summers and cold winters. The best time to visit depends on your interests. Summer (June to August) is ideal for outdoor activities and festivals. Spring (April to May) and autumn (September to October) offer milder weather and fewer crowds.

Transportation: Romania has an extensive transportation network, including trains, buses, trams, metros, and domestic flights. The Romanian Railways (CFR) operates trains connecting major cities and regions. Consider renting a car for exploring rural areas and scenic drives.

Language: Romanian is the official language, but English and other languages are spoken, especially in tourist areas, hotels, and restaurants.

Currency and Payments: Romania uses the Romanian Leu (RON) as its currency. Credit and debit cards are widely accepted in major cities and tourist areas, but it's advisable to carry some cash, especially in rural areas and small establishments.

Cuisine: Romanian cuisine is hearty and flavorful, featuring dishes like sarmale (cabbage rolls), mămăligă (polenta), mititei (grilled sausages), and ciorbă (sour soup). Don't miss trying traditional desserts like papanasi (doughnuts) and cozonac (sweet bread). Indulge in Romanian wines and palinca (fruit brandy).

Cultural Highlights: Explore Romania's rich cultural heritage by visiting historic cities, castles, monasteries, and fortified churches. Discover attractions like Bran Castle (commonly associated with Dracula), the painted monasteries of Bucovina, the medieval town of Sighisoara, and the Palace of the Parliament in Bucharest.

Outdoor Activities: Romania offers plenty of outdoor activities, including hiking, skiing, wildlife watching, and exploring national parks. Visit the Carpathian Mountains for hiking and skiing, explore the Danube Delta for birdwatching and boat trips, or relax in the thermal spas of Baile Herculane.

Safety: Romania is generally a safe destination for travelers, but exercise caution, especially in crowded tourist areas where pickpocketing can occur. Be mindful of your belongings and avoid isolated areas, particularly at night.

Etiquette: Romanians are known for their hospitality and warmth. When greeting someone, a handshake is common. Show respect for local customs and traditions, such as addressing people by their title and last name unless invited to use their first name.

By keeping these tips in mind, you can have a memorable experience exploring the beauty and culture of Romania.
