Brasov Trip

Posted on June 29, 2012

Sightseeing tour in Romania the car rental service

 

Every year we think of a destination that I want to visit, make plans, calculate and budget times, we forget to ask and children if they disagreed with our choice. Some of us choose to travel by train or plane to reduce the time spent on the road, but lost sight of some more important issues.

 Rent a car / rent a car services

First buy four tickets or more up too much travel and so will be to give up other things. The best way to travel with children would be renting a car or rent a minibus.

Even if traveling by car is quite demanding for both adults and children, remain precious memories such as hum some songs together, we can stop during the trip and see some scenery.  Children will be delighted to see a roadside Sheperd with sheep, or a field full of sun flowers and many other things.

Before starting the journey is better to make some preparations. One of them would be to choose the destination and the exact time when we want to go. Then we draw a map, here we can ask help children so they will still love her can watch and track. Luggage and prepare them together, they will be able to give their preferences, to choose their favorite games, toys and all that would make the trip more comfortable.

To make it easier I'll give an example of a route that a family with two children could follow him and in which children, but only they would have learned.

Our journey will begin in Cluj, a brief visit by SibiuSighisoara and Brasov will be the final destination.

Accommodation

First, after I set the destination and departure days will have to look for a place to stay. If the journey will take five days, and one of the nights we spent in Sibiu, Sighisoara and the other, you'd better watch what deals are.

If we make reservations for one of the pensions in Sibiu or hotels in town, you might want to follow and offer discounts or special offers site. If you over looked this and remember only a few days before, there is nothing. We have a chance following offers last minute.

Booking for accommodation is made, luggage ready, perfectly healthy children, and all are eager to hit the road.

Day 1:

We rented the car from Eurocars Cluj, we can ask and child car seat, or DVD player, and certainly anything that we would bring the kids quiet. While we can lead them to watch their favorite cartoon or movie for older kids. It would be advisable to have at hand for car sickness medications or can ask doctor to administer them before the trip, as a precaution.

Hit the road, enthusiastic and always the question in mind: "I got?".

Among the objectives that we could meet during our trip I could tell Cheile Turzii, which will be our little ones observed and passengers. Of course over time will be much more to see.

Once in Sibiu, after I rented a room at a hotels in Sibiu, we can start exploring the city. Everything to be perfect we start with the zoo, which is found in the Astra Museum. Large mills, carts old, rudimentary shelters, clean air and archaic world will lead children in a fairytale land. It is impossible not you love, it's all so fascinating.  And as far back to be not too sudden, walking among the lions, leopards, monkeys, deer, bears and all other creatures will be wonderful. Do not forget to capture these wonderful moments with your children.

After such a busy day, abundant and tasty meal, and then one day sleep will end in a good note.

Day 2:

We start out again, this time our destination will be Sighisoara. How could we pass her? The medieval city has so many things to show. City towers, such as the Clock Tower which houses the History Museum of Sibiu, churches, museums, medieval houses, pupils will complete general education scale both parents and children. If and Medieval Festival period, then make sure that children will want to be princesses or knights. Realm of fairy tale continues.

We find a room for rent in pension Casa cu Cerb, if not already have something booked.

Day 3:

May feel fatigue of two days, but what I have seen so far will be a good opportunity to talk with children. So we know better what has delighted most, what they want to review what they learned new and others.

Arrived in Brasov, we can start a little walk through downtown to stretch our legs. We can visit the Black Church Square and then to climb up on Tampa, where we can admire the entire city.

Around Brasov are many other sights, but the next day will be proper for them to find.

Day 4:

First we go to visit in Poiana Brasov, where we could ascend by cable car to Peak  Postavaru or Peak Cristianu Mare. From here we head to Rasnov where we will see the Dacians and Romans, the soldiers of World War I and we can find the fountain legend.

Then Bran Castle will be eager to show us his rooms, where once lived the Queen Mary. Sandman makes his presence felt as well so we headed to the hotels in Brasov.

Day 5:

Our journey is drawing to an end, and we start off, this time home. Excited but also disappointed that it's over so quickly. Children will dream of what they saw, we will be happy that everything ended well and we will bring joy remember these moments minutes spent with children.

Romania has so much to show and to offer, but if we do not show our children, who will?

Why should visit Sibiu?

Posted on May 23, 2011

Why should visit Sibiu?

Romania is the land where all relief forms are tied harmoniously: from imposing mountains to the seaside of the Black Sea, from hills and abundantly plains to the Danube delta…not for nothing the country is called “The Land of Choice” in the new touristic slogan.

Although, for the moment, we don’t excel at the infrastucture chapter, any touristic activity will be taken again, because the Romanian tourism is focused pre-eminently above all, on the natural landscapes and amply history.

As a location where to spend your vacation, I would strongly recommend you Sibiu, maybe the well-known city of the country on international plan, thanks to the title of “international cultural capital”, achieved in 2007, beside Louxembourg. This is the indisputable proof  that our country can be proud, both on culture and tourism’s plan.

How to reach  the destination

In terms of transport to Sibiu, there are a lot of options. If you come from Romania or abroad, and you don’t want to waste your time on the road, you have the airplane option: Sibiu’s International Airport is located 5km West from the town, with direct access on the E81 highway.

Through it, direct links are ensured with intern airports ( Bucuresti, Targu Mures, Timisoara) and also international: Germany, Austria, Spain, Greece, Ukraine, Moldavia and Italy.

If you fall into the bohemian type and you are eager for a closer view of the landscape that our country has to offer you have train’s option, which will allow you to save some money and use them for other activities.

For those who cannot separate from the automobile, going by your own car (or a rented one, Rent a Car in Sibiu with EuroCars is very well developed, renting can be made abroad also) is a safe option. European roads passing through Sibiu are E 68 (Arad - Sibiu - Brasov) and E 81 (Cluj - Sibiu - Pitesti - Bucharest). Not even parking lots will be able to overshadow your stay thanks to the 80 locations equipped with a total of 5051 parking spaces.

Regarding housing, the supply is extremely varied, considering the fact that the tradition of hospitality in Sibiu is the oldest in Romania, the first hotel being certified since 1555. It remains up to you to choose the category (comfort level), framing (apartment, cottage, camping, pensions in Sibiu, hotels in Sibiu, motel or guesthouse) and location, and bids will not disappoint you.

In the “must see” category:

- the museums (Sibiu was the cultural capital with a reason): Brukenthal National Museum, Astra National Museum Complex, Evangelical Church Museum, Steam Locomotives Museum.

- Churches: The Orthodox Cathedral, The Evangelical Church, The Catholic Church, The Ursuline Church, The Franciscan Church, The Church of the pit, The Church Of the trees, The Reformed Church, Church of St. Johannis, St. Elizabeth, St. Luke's Church, Church Asylum Cross Chapel, Synagogue;

-  the historic center: historical three markets: Large Square, Small Square, Huet Square, Defensive Towers, The walls of the Citadel;

- recreational areas: Sub Arini Park, Astra Park, Grove Nature Park, Sibiu Zoo (the first zoo in Romania), and for audiophiles is necessarily recommended concert of the  Philharmonic State of Sibiu.

Restaurant:

In terms of cuisine, traditional cuisine from this part of the country was influenced by German and Hungarian population. Therefore, in Sibiu are preferred poultry and beef soups with semolina or flour dumplings, homemade noodles, soups meal, cumin or tomatoes soups.

In Sibiu is located the oldest restaurant on the actual territory of Romania, "The Gold Barrel" which is located in the same building in the Stairs Passage since XVI century.

Sibiu offers many options for dining: from selected restaurants to fast food and pizza, it depends  only on the mood you are in.

You have only two things to set: the date and the way in which you want to travel, because Sibiu is eager of tourists to whom showing off his wealth.

Whether you are a fan of hiking or cultural trips or you are simply passing through, Sibiu will make you want to come back anytime!

The way to travel

First you must choose to travel. You can travel by own car but you should know that usually up in Brasov, you will take many hours of walking, or you can rent a car in Brasov with EuroCars Romania.

Or if you come with friends, rent a minibus with driver, who will escape the worries of driving. You can also come by plane, landing in Bucharest Otopeni Airport, Bucharest Baneasa Airport and Sibiu Airport, and the best choice is to go to the airport by train in 3 hours and you're in Brasov.

At the same time you can travel by train, but this seems a very tedious way.

Accommodation

Secondly, in Brasov you can easy find a place to stay over night.There are a lot of hotels in Brasov, flats, studios to rent or to host with a family.The old center of Brasov hostels are also a good option because at least gives you a breakfast.

As a suggestion we recommend you pre book a hotel room, so you will get rid of care and will enjoy visiting the city without wasting time.

So the food and the place where to stay is your last worry because in Brasov accommodation is not expensive and the conditions are good. I suggest you to host in a guest house or family hotel because you can establish a program without talk into account the meal hours. And you will never be hungry in town because the food specialities are very delicious and the prices are acceptable.

Point of interest

Thirdly, in our town I assure you that you will never feel bored because there are a lot of places to visit and a lot of entertainment everywere you look. You can spend your time visitng some touristical places, you can practice some sports in Poiana Brasov , you can visit Bran  and see Dracula Castel, The Black Church or you can simply have a walk in the old town and admire the buildings. You can take in a concert or go drink something in a pub.

And if the pictures have not convinced you, maybe you'll be able to convince movie.

In conclusion, I hope I have helped you and you will come to visit Brasov because you have nothing to lose and it’s a perfect holiday place to go, and a week here is not expensive. In my opinion is the perfect place to spend fine because you have what to learn from such a trip.

Sinaia, town story

Posted on March 29, 2011

Sinaia, town story

Ever since you came to the outskirts of town, where the royal train greets an old locomotive still stationed reminiscent of centuries long past the ‘pungency maximum‘ was 60 km / h as written on the locomotive.

Royal Station, a small station and gallivant still welcome at the entrance to the royal symbol, the wings of an eagle. Arrived here and admire you more Sinaia and halt the miniature model inside the station and the smallest detail from Sinaia. Ms. welcomes tourists who will delight the little ones asking her to look for birds, young people in the park, people who play, fire truck, sheep and many others that will delight even the big ones discovered so many details in the model.

Not far from the station you can already think you are in one city from another era, recalling Ghica Park XVII, XVIII.  A walk in the park, decorated with great attention to detail, with Palace Hotel and Casino Hotel Caraiman your life will shape the image of a royal ... Park-green casino architecture and for the other buildings still whisper of Carol walks with the family.

And because a city can be discovered more comfortable with the car, I recommend renting a car or minibus with EuroCars. You will find a way through in the forest and will guide your steps towards the holy shrine of the Sinai monastery. Holy shrine shelters plenty of history and if you have the opportunity to hear a teacher telling about the monastery will be fascinated, but outside of history remains a place to stay with the holy spirit to pray and not to admire the sight.

Along the same road you will encounter some troubadours who sing your tunes and famous before long you will remain dumbfounded seeing the grandeur of Peles Castle. While you will be hard, better visit the castle began Pelisor. Beyond all the information that you will give your guide, you will create Pelisor image of a castle with 99 rooms where Queen Mary has left a mark of royal life.

After you look delighted Pelisorul will amaze Peles. It creates the impression of a modest castle, beautiful trees that surround him hide his greatness. Arriving in the courtyard of the palace you really believe that Sinaia is a royal city. Grandeur castle from the entrance courtyard, statues are well preserved as evidence, but the interior of the 160 rooms will surely amaze. Detach yourself from what you will guide nice story from each camera, however you will retain only a few architectural styles and several rooms which were important figures such as George Enescu. Here art detail is always present you will need days to see every detail in every room, but beyond greatness castle rooms that depict the unique and luxurious like in 1883, is so well preserved that you will feel you are visiting Carol and looking into the castle, but he is much in his room by climbing on his secret entrances, and the Queen Mary expect to find in a small cinema palace. I talk a lot about the castle, but insignificant words are all he can say besides this castle...

If you think you have seen everything you got remember that visit and George Enescu Memorial House, Tower - slightly above the Pelisor and last but not least Caroli Avenue downtown, where hotels are per square inch, or you can walk around town with little tourist train.

For those passionate natures more than the history, Sinaia offers: ski trails, mountain roads furnished, and cable cars that climb up the quota in 2000.

If  I was amazed from watch man can do, how much art created , reached at  the mountain vastness I am  amazed by how many and how offer pure nature and wild landscape in ours named Romania ... the mighty mountains spring up everywhere, a fresh green trees make you want to stay in the vastness of the landscape that makes you a city story, Sinaia.

Tourism in Romania

Posted on July 08, 2010

Tourism in Romania...what can the foreigners you say about our beloved country? If we would pay attention to all the negative sides of our country "promoted" in the media, we would quickly realise that the country isn't, not in a 5% of its value, known by the tourists in its true value.

Yes, if you ask any foreigner where is Romania situated on the map, maybe they might indicate Asia or Africa, but this might be caused, also by the lack of knowledge on Geography, and not entirely by the fact that we are not well promoted out Romania's borders.

From my abroad experience, I can easily affirm that we, Romanians, are known due to several personalities that made history such as: Nadia Comaneci (first gymnast ever to have scored a clean 10 on a global competition), Nicolae Ceausescu (our Communist leader), Gica Hagi (football player) but rarely heard that Romania is known abroad due to its immense beauty of nature.

Fortunately, we can realise that tourism in our country is increasing and this can only be a good thing. Tourism in Romania focuses on the country's natural landscapes, the wilderness of the nature being still visible, and the country's rich history. We hear that the number of tourists is growing every year and that can only make us happy.

Because it's in our best interest to promote the country's real values, here are some unique places that you do not want to miss,  while your are driving a car maybe rented from EuroCars Rent A Car on your trip to Romania:

1. Danube Delta (Romanian: Delta Dunarii) is the second largest river delta in, after the Volga Delta, largest reserve of wet lands in Europe, and the best preserved of all from this continent. In 1990, UNESCO has included the Danube Delta, the newest form of relief from Romania, in the list of World Heritage Sites as biosphere reserve, mainly preserved because it is being kept far away from "the progress of industrialization".

2. The Transfagarasan road or road no. DN7C is the highest and most dramatic paved road in Romania.

Built as a strategic military route, the 90 km of twists and turns run North to South across the tallest sections of the Carpathians Mountains, between the highest peak in the country, Moldoveanu and the second highest, Negoiu.  The road is well known in the region of Transylvania, and connects the cities of Sibiu and Pitesti. In its top, you can eat, there are some good restaurants, we can advice the restaurant situated right next to the lake. Yes, there is also a lake there, it is called Bâlea Lake one of the few glacier lakes in the country, situated at 2,034 m of altitude in the Fagaras Mountains.

So, we have made an introduction on seaside and mountains, let us also present something related to our tradition and religion.

3. The Merry Cemetery is a cemetery in the village of Sapânta, Maramure? county, Romania. Maybe you wonder why it is merry...because it is famous for its colourful tombstones with naive paintings describing, in an original and poetic manner, and sometimes real funny, the persons that are buried and also, in the same funny style, representative scenes from their lives. The Merry Cemetery became an open-air museum and a national tourist attraction. It is worth seeing it!

Travel trips in Romania

Posted on June 14, 2010

Welcome to Romania! How about finding out some important tips about traveling in this country before actually arriving here? Of course these tips remain valid also for the ones that have already arrived!

Driving in Romania

First of all, basic rules: driver seat is on the left side of the car (UK drivers pay attention! :) ),  no cell phones while driving (hands free is allowed), driving with your lights on might help you to decrease the possibility of being stopped by the police, seat beld always on as for the driver and its passengers (pregnant women are exception to the rule).

Always make sure that you have signalized your intention to make a right or left with 50 m (in the city) and 100 m (outside the city) before actually making the maneuver. This helps your driving mates to see your intention and to avoid crashing into you.

Road tax: When you rent a car in Romania, please check that the rent a car company also provides you Rovigneta which proves that for the rented car, the road tax for driving inside Romania has been already paid. If not, you can buy this insurance from any gas station on your way. Attention! If you do not show this proof to the police, you will for sure have to pay a ticket of around 150 Euros.

Mamaia: If you are heading for the seaside, in Mamaia, you will have to pay upon every entry inside this seaside city a tax of 15 RON (about 3 Euros and 50 cents). This is paid only for the summer season 15 June - 15 September. You can always make a pass if you are forced to return every day here.

 

Cernavoda bridge: If you have to pass the Cernavoda bridge, on your way to Constanta or the seaside, please be aware that there is a tax of 10 Ron (about 2 Euros and 50 cents) for small vehicles. This is paid only once.

 

Speed limit: If you are a speed fan, please consider that in Romania these are the speed regulations: 50km/h in small villages, 60km/h in the city, 100km/h on country roads and 120km/h on national roads (marked as DN) and European roads (E), as well as highways (A).

If the police stops you when driving with more than 50 km/h over the legal speed, they can retain your driving license and for sure, you will also receive a ticket of about 50 Euros. And let us not talk about your safety which is the most important aspect of your trip to Romania. Drive safe and slow because the sights are beautiful and Romanian roads are not quite built to serve as tracks. Take a look at the this picture, what more can we say? You would wish to drive the car with 30 km/h in order to capture the immense beauty of this place, but be sure that if you drive like a snail, you will only hear swearing from the bottom to the top!

Travel tips: As a foreign tourist you will have to put in your luggage right before leaving home several memory cards for your camera and lots and lots of batteries because you will be surprised to find out that the diversity of this country will offer you at every 5 minutes a different attraction that must be immortalized and well kept in your trip journal. Patience and a big empty stomach are the best travel advices: it takes patience and time to discover every corner of the amazing sights of the country, and an empty stomach with a bigger appetite in order to taste all the Eco products (if you are heading for the villages in Transilvania or Maramures as well as different other regions in the country), or rich meals with good wine, all made inside the household.

We could go on and on but it would be interesting to hear all the questions that might cross you mind!
