Help with possible Romania trip

Jump to last reply

We are considering a trip to Romania for next May and I'm so confused. I've been wanting to go to Romania for quite awhile but I've never really researched and now that I have I'm looking for some advice. We will only have a week, and will be flying FF miles, hopefully into Bucharest unless someone tells me there are better options. Anyways, here goes:

1) We are interested in the areas of Transylvania (castles, Sibiu, Sighisoara, etc.), Maramures and Bucovina. I would love to see the painted monestaries. I know we cannot visit each of these areas in a single trip. Would someone that's been to each area tell me which they would prefer, and why?

2) If we did want to do Bucovina or Maramures, how would we get there? Drive times seem long (using viamichelin.com). Are there smaller airports we could fly into from Bucharest? Trains? Would Budapest be closer?

3) How is Romania in May? I don't mind a bit of rain and chilly weather, but I don't want it to be pouring down rain the entire time we are there. I know it's impossible to predict the weather, but I'm hoping someone who has been in May can chime in.

Thank you!
Tracy
