How to get around Romania, advice from a local traveler

There are many places to see and they are spread all over the country so it is very useful to know how to get around Romania, and what transportation to use to go from one place to the other.

There are 4 ways to get to Brasov from Bucharest:

  • by plane
  • by train
  • by bus
  • by car

All of them are easy to use and reliable. While flying from one place to another will be the fastest way for cities far away from one another, renting a car and driving or taking a bus might be a better option for cities at about 200 to 300 km away from one another.

Going by train might be the best option if you like to write while you travel and don’t want to interact with the traffic on the road which can be pretty annoying some times in Romania, especially during local holidays when people travel inside the country.
