Travel Tips

Absolutely, Romania is a country brimming with history and spectacular landscapes. Here are some tips for a trip to Bucharest, Sibiu, and Brasov:
Best Time to Visit:
The best time to visit these Romanian cities are during the spring (April to June) and autumn (September to October), when temperatures are pleasant and the tourist crowds are smaller.

Route and Accessibility:
All three cities are accessible via train and bus services. Bucharest, being the capital, is well-connected with international flights. Rail or road travel from Bucharest to Sibiu takes about 4-5 hours, and Sibiu to Brasov is about 2-3 hours.

Altitude and Acclimatization:
These cities are not situated at high altitudes, so acclimatization is not an issue.

Accommodation and Booking:
All three cities offer a range of accommodations from budget hostels to high-end hotels. It’s recommended to book your accommodations in advance, especially during the high season.

Clothing and Essentials:
Depending on the time of your visit, pack accordingly. Romanian summers can be hot, so bring light clothing, a hat and sunscreen. In winter, warm clothes, boots, and accessories like a hat, gloves, and scarf are essential. Don't forget a good pair of walking shoes, essential for exploring the cities on foot.

Health and Safety:
Besides your regular health essentials, carry a health insurance card, as it is mandatory in Romania. For safety, take usual precautions like not displaying flashy jewelry or money and avoiding dimly lit areas at night.

Local Etiquette and Respect:
Romanians value hospitality and politeness, so it's always appreciated if you learn a few basic phrases in Romanian. When visiting any religious sites, wear modest clothing covering your shoulders and knees.
