City tours, excursions and tickets in Bucharest and surroundings
Romania - moving around the country
To travel between cities in Romania, it is best to choose the railway system. However, its quality is also not up to international standards. The country has four types of trains, each of which has both the first and second class. Passenger trains run across the country, but very slowly. Train tickets are cheap, but the trains themselves are very dirty and crowded. Fast trains travel long distances, move faster, but the quality of service within the train remains the same. In winter, these trains are not even heated. Express trains of class Rapid move fast enough, but the quality of the wagons in this case is much higher. Between the cities there are so-called InterCity trains, considered the fastest and most comfortable. Thus, it is best to reserve seats for trains in advance, especially if a night trip is foreseen.
Nature and parks of Romania
The high Carpathian Mountains that pass through the whole country are the main, but not the only, pride of Romania. Rocks, mountain serpentines and cool coniferous forests are full of ancient legends, wild animals and national parks along which tourists and locals take leisure walks. The mountains constitute a part of the Alpine folded mountains, and the highest ridges reach 2,544 meters (the Moldoveanu peak). One of the most memorable places is the Iron Gate, a natural narrowing of the ridge, with a panoramic view from the top. Since ancient times Carpathian Mountains have become a part of mysterious stories and legends, most of which have survived to this present day, enveloping the whole country with the mysterious fleur and the unquenchable interest of tourists. An example of this is the legend of Vlad Dracula regularly attracting crowds of tourists to the southern country.
