Romania Comments

Bucharest has the best mici (meat rolls) ever. Sarmala is also very good.
Bucharest is a good place to visit. I've spent some time in there and it was very nice. I also visited other capitals in the eastern Europe, and though Bucharest is not as spectacular as Budapest in architecture of buildings, it has its good parts. It's not very organized and still has a few problems with the cleaning of the streets, but most certainly you don't go there to inspect the city. You go to visit and have fun. And fun you'll have. If you don't find tourist info, ask people and they'll help. Almost everyone speaks English and is very helpful. They'll tell you where you should go and what you should stay away from.
Brasov is just fantastic. A town with charm and much flair. The people are (like many Romanians) are very hospitable, nice and helpful. Explore Sinaia (Peles castle), Rasnov, the fortified churches of Prejmer and Harman. And if possible don't miss Sighisoara, the medieval town two hours from Brasov. It's great there. Or just stay in Brasov. I myself could stay there forever!
I urge anyone is planning to go to Bucharest to stay well away. It’s damp, smelly, thieves, beggars, insects and bad sanitation (I mean real bad).
I visited Romania, including Sighisoara in Oct.'05 and was surprised with how friendly everyone was throughout my entire two week trip. Romanians are very polite, hard working people.
Bucharest is a great city with a lot of nice things to see. And the nightlife is the best. The beer is dirt cheap and the rest.... Well, smile and enjoy.
