Transylvania - June 2018

Jump to last reply

Just thought I'd chip in with our proposed Transylvania itinerary between 5-23 June 2018.

Booked our flights from Heathrow to Bucharest with TAROM Airlines, arriving 2000 on 5 June. Plans not set in stone yet, but the plan so far...

- 5 June - From Airport take the #780 bus to Bucharest main train station. Stay overnight, almost next door at the Ibis Hotel

- 6 June - Train to Sinaia. I'll book online @

- 6 to 8 June - Siniara

- 9 June - Train to Brasov

- 9 to 14 June - Brasov, using it as a base for local days trips

15 June - Train to Sighisoara

15 to 17 June - Sighisoara, using it as a base

18 June - Train to Sibiu

18 to 20 June - Sibiu

21 June - Train to Siniara (via Brasov)

21 to 22 June - Siniara

23 June - Train to Bucharest [early morning] to catch lunchtime flight back to UK

I've purposely kept any time in Bucharest to an absolute minimum as Transylvania is the big, big draw.

Most of the travel will be done by rail, and I'll be doing lots of research.

I'll probably be booking most of our accommodation on, but not necessarily all of it.

Just got back from a couple of weeks in beautiful Bosnia & Herzegovina [Mostar & Sarajevo], was in Croatia [Solin, Split, Brac and Makarska] in April, and before we go to Romania we've managed to fit in 3 weeks in Macedonia [Skopje, Lake Ohrid, and Bitola], plus a couple of lazy All Inclusive holidays which I don't really count as travel.

Our last trip, and final trip to SE Asia was to Thailand and Vietnam was in February. Got fed up of years of long haul, and now concentrating closer to home, and so far Central Europe has been wonderful.

Postman Pat has just delivered the latest copy of The Rough Guide to Romania, so lot of homework to do.
