Getting around Romania

By Road

Overseas driving licenses are accepted in Romania. Vehicle insurance is also required. If you haven’t purchased this in advance, you can get it at most border crossings. Romania follows right-hand driving, with overtaking on the left.

Getting to Romania

In the recent past, with the fading of the Communist era, immigration rules have eased up considerably. Residents of the USA, European Union, Japan, Canada, Switzerland, Australia and New Zealand require no visa for a 90-day stay. Turkish citizens are allowed stay up to a maximum of 60 days. Visitors from neighbouring former Communist countries are allowed up to 30 days.

A host of elements come together to make Romania a magnet for visitors on the international tourist circuit.

Finally, there’s Romania’s traditional folk culture, vibrant and alive.

Transportation in Transylvania

Transylvania is easy to get to due to its closeness to Central Europe, with railways connecting both large and small cities. For long journeys, it is better to take the Inter-City trains which are very comfortable. You can travel through Transylvania using the auto-routes, European roads, which connect the big cities of Romania, modern national roads (DN) or the regional roads. The regional roads are not suitable for heavy traffic. Buses and microbuses (which follow a timetable) are available in both urban and rural areas.
