Preparing your trip to Brasov: advices & hints - things to do and to obey

Brasov - Romania 1. Taxi remains the most convenient type of transport for travelers. The local taxi service rates are quite low comparing to average prices in Europe. Even if the machine is equipped with a counter, it is best to negotiate the price of a ride beforehand, because some drivers might want to use ignorance of tourists.
2. The best way to exchange currency is to use special exchange offices. As a rule, they offer much more favorable rates comparing to many banks. It should be noted that the exchange offices located near the airport usually charge high fees, making exchange less profitable.
3. While going for a walk around the city, tourists should not forget to take a copy of the identity document with them. Many nightlife entertaining facilities allow entering only after a passport is presented, so the availability of documents will surely help to resolve any disputes with ease.
4. Guests are encouraged to visit Brasov in May, as during this time of year the city hosts several interesting events - Jazz Festival, Festival of Daffodils and International Exhibition of Photographs.
5. Leaving tips is not common in restaurants and cafes of the city. When paying for the meal to a waiter, you can round off the sum indicated in the bill to the nearest 500 lei. You can thank for the service of taxi drivers in the same way. Copyright www.orangesmile.com

8. The locals are very hospitable and friendly, so tourists shouldn’t hesitate to ask them for help. There are always police officers in the streets of the city. They will help you to navigate Brasov and explain how to get to attractions and places of interest.
9. The local ski resorts provide a favorable system of discounts available to tourists who come on vacation with their families. Special rates are usually set on the rental of sports equipment; tourists with children can also get discounts at local ski schools and other sports centers.
10. The local wineries produce excellent drinks, which remain one of the most popular souvenirs among tourists. You will get most advantageous rates if you buy wine in stores that are located in close proximity to wineries.
