On this page you will find all the content from Compass & Fork for food and travel in Romania.  And check back often as we are always adding content from Romania.

Since tourists have yet to discover Romania it is very affordable and relatively uncrowded compared to other European destinations.

Bucharest, the capital, has a lot to see and do, but moving outside the capital to explore the resorts of the Black Sea, the Danube Delta, the medieval towns in the mountains has its own rewards. Discover castles, traditional dancing, fantastic wines and the painted monasteries.

Transportation: Getting Around While in Romania

Public transportation in Bucharest comprises trams, subway and buses. Walking through the historic old town and surrounds provides a great way to see the buildings and appreciate the architecture. Much of the Old Town is pedestrian only. Traffic is terrible within Bucharest so explore other options to driving.

Outside of Bucharest the road infrastructure is good and renting a car and driving is an option. Keep in mind it does snow in the winter. Quite a large country, driving distances in Romania can be long.

Train travel within Romania can provide an alternative to driving. And for some travel, where travel is mountainous and driving can be quite slow, internal flights are an option (see below.)

For international car rental we use Holiday Autos. The price quoted includes all taxes and fees and it also searches local rental car providers in Romania, which may be more affordable than international companies. Download our rental car checklist to compare your quote.


Flights to and within Romania

Romania is well serviced by numerous low cost airlines including RyanAir, EasyJet, and Wizz Air. In addition there are two Romanian carriers- Blue Air and Tarom which provide both international and domestic service.
