  16. 16. Romania survival guideThe Royal family: After the 2nd World war, Romania was forced to change from aMonarchy into a Republic; however, nowadays the Romanian Royal Family is stillrespected and their informal role in our society is visible; King Michael of Romaniaturned 90 years old in November 2011.Wine: It might surprise some of you to hear that Romania ranks 10th in the World interms of volume of wine production. Romanians pump out nearly half a million tons ofthe stuff every year. However, the quality varies significantly. Ask us if you want tips onwho some of the better producers.Broadband speed: Broadbandavailability is still somewhatlow by European standardsbut its speed is one of thebest in the world, second only toSouth Korea. That makes for a verysmooth Internet experience!Cheap taxis: Where else inEurope can you catch a cab andpay less than 5 Euro from the centreto the most remote place of the capital?24h shops: Fancy anything at any time? We have lots of small shops where you can buypretty much everything round the clock.Romanian food: Romanian traditional foods revolve around meat. Cabbage rolls,sausages, tripe soup and stews (like tocanita) are popular main dishes. Pork is the mainmeat used in Romanian cuisine and the saying goes that "Cea mai buna leguma eporcul" – "Pork is the best vegetable". But beef is also consumed, and good lamb or fishdishes are definitely worth a try.
  17. 17. Romania survival guideTypical street food: Berliners have the Wurst, Londoners have fish&chips,Romans the pizza, we in Bucharest (oddly enough...) have the “shawarma”.Dont ask how a middle eastern dish became endemic for Bucharest.Flowers: When offering flowers as a gift, you should always be careful tooffer them in odd numbers. Even numbers are used for funerals only. Thatswhy the "dozen roses" concept is a bit weird for us. Payment: Most stores, restaurants, bars etc. will prefer cash payments in Romanian currency Lei (RON). Luckily, you can find cash machines everywhere in Bucharest. They rarely accept Euros and credit cards, increasing in coverage, are still not very popular. That said, most large stores and popular restaurants accept card payments. However, it is recommended to check first!Weather: Summer in Romania is gloriously hot, with temperatures easilyexceeding 30 degrees Celsius. Luckily, it tends to be dry so it rarely becomesunbearable. Try to stay in the shade, dress lightly and drink plenty of water.Drivers in Bucharest: One must be very careful as a pedestrian in Bucharest.Drivers tend to be inconsiderate and often do not obey traffic signals. Dontassume a car will stop for you at a red light and be vigilant at all times.Smoking: Romanians smoke a lot and dont really care about those whodont. Smoking is still allowed in public places.
  18. 18. Travel TipsA. Flying to BucharestBucharest has good connections with most European capitals and with the largest citiesin Romania, but it can be difficult to find a direct flight to Bucharest from outsideEurope.Bucharest has one international airport: Henri Coanda International Airport, located inOtopeni, 18 km north of the city centre. All flights land here.City transfer from Otopeni airportHenri Coanda Airport (Otopeni) is serviced by train, buses and taxis. If you come onanother day than the recommended one (19th of July), you will need such info.We recommend taking a taxi, as it is hands-down the fastest and most comfortable wayto get to the city, costing between 10 and 25 euros. The EUR/RON exchange rate isroughly 4.5 RON to the EUR.There is a taxi stand right outside the terminal and a ride into the city costs c.45 RON(ranging between 30 and 100 RON). You can only pay with local currency, so make sureyou get some cash from the ATM before you exit the terminal. For a safe trip, try callingus first and we will order you a cab!There are two bus lines to the city: bus 780 which goes to the main train station Garade Nord and bus 783 which heads to downtown. They run from 5:30 AM till 11:00 PM.Tickets and cards can only be purchased from the booth in front of either the Arrivals orDepartures terminals. You cannot buy tickets from the driver. Remember to validateyour ticket on board the bus. The bus is far superior to the train in terms of both timeand cost.The train service is called Henri Coanda Expres. Train tickets can be bought inside theairport at CFR (Romanian Railway Company) ticket counter. The train station is 2 kmaway from the airport, but there is a shuttle bus that transfers passengers to it. Onceyou reach the train station, there is another 30 minutes until your reach the main trainstation Gara de Nord. The train service is available between 6 AM and 11PM. Counterintuitively, the train is the worst option you could go for...
  19. 19. Some facts about the locationBeach resortMamaia is the most popular beach resort in Romania.It is located in the immediate North-East of Constanta.Mamaia has almost no full-time residents, but itsurely gets populated during summer.

  22. 22. Travel TipsTransport within BucharestTaxisAgain, we recommend getting around by taxi, as it is very cheap. There are a lot of taxicompanies in Bucharest and youll easily find a cab here. Avoid taking independent cabdrivers, but use only the services of big taxi companies as these will be cheap andreliable. Some of the largest taxi companies are: Meridian, Leone, Cristaxi, Tess Taxi,Cobalcescu, Taxi AS, Taxi 2000, Taxi Total, Mondial, etc. Cars from these companies havethe rates displayed on the door, right under the rear view mirrors. These should rangebetween 1.3 and 1.8 RON per km. Independent taxis have significantly higher fees. If ataxi does not display these prices on the door, or if the price is 3.5 RON per km, it is bestnot to take it and find another, as youll probably be charged five to ten times higherthan usual. Also, most of the larger hotels (including the Novotel) have independenttaxi drivers loitering around the entrance - if you want to get somewhere, just getreception to call you a taxi from one of the large companies.Metro (Underground)The metro has four lines (M1, M2, M3, M4) and covers the city quite extensively. It isusually a cheap and easy way to get around. Maps of the subway can be found on theMetrorex official site (map on last page). Buses, trams and trolleybusesBucharest has a very complex network of buses, trams and trolleybuses which is, at firstglance, fairly confusing to the tourist. This is not because of any inconsistencies withinthe network, but rather due to the intricate web of hundreds of bus, tram andtrolleybus routes found in the city. Make sure you know the stop youre getting off at -even though in most trolleybuses and in some modern buses and trams, following stopsare announced automatically and displayed on a screen inside the vehicle. The ticketingsystem uses contact-less smart-cards, called Activ cards, which you can buy (you willneed some ID to do that).
  23. 23. Travel TipsB. Flying to ConstantaConstanta (Mihail Kogalniceanu Airport) is also a popular airport in Romania, with goodconnections accross Europe. It is located 25km away from Constanta. It has also theadvantage of being closer to the resort - it will take you about 30-40 minutes by bus toget to the resort.Resort transfer from Mihail Kogalniceanu airportMihail Kogalniceanu Airport is serviced by taxis. If you come on another day than therecommended one (19th of July), you will need such information (on the 19th there willbe cars picking you up).By taxi, the estimated cost of the journey is of 70 RON (15 euro). Try to visit an ATMbefore you get on the ride, because they accept only RON.
