Romania and Hungary itinerary

Jump to last reply

We are planning a trip to Hungary and Romania in May and I would appreciate any comments or tips on our itinerary. We travel a lot, but have never been to this area. We love trains and would like to travel by train as much as possible.

BTW, we live in NYC and found that a visit to the Romanian Tourist Office there was extremely helpful. The representative there spent an hour with us, going over maps and making great suggestions for the itinerary, and answering questions. Their website is also excellent, much more user-friendly than the usual government sites, including historic hotel listings and suggested itineraries.

We’ll fly to Budapest and stay for a week. We plan to see the sights in a leisurely way and do day trips to Szentendre and possibly Eger as well. (We got a great deal from the Hotel Parlament for our long stay.)

Romania Day 1 – 5: We’ll take a train from Budapest, arriving in the evening in Baia Mare, staying at Hotel Carpati. The next day we rent a car and drive to Sighetu Marmatiei, our base for the next 4 days at Hotel Marmatia.
In Sighet we have arranged for a private guide to take us around the wooden churches and villages for two full days. The last day we will ride the steam train at Viseu de Sos and will sleep on the train the night before. That afternoon we’ll drive back to Baia Mare.

Day 6 – 8 : take a morning train to Brasov (Hotel Bella Muzica) and stay for 3 nights. Visit sights in Brasov and either Bran or Sinaia.
Day 9 -10: Train to Sibiu (Huet Residence) for two days.
Day 11: Fly home.
Any tips, tricks, comments or suggestions would be most welcome!
