If you are traveling from Budapest or Debrecen to Romania, chances are that Oradea, Romania, is your first stop in Romania. This small city close to the border is quite attractive and worth staying for a day or two before traveling onward. Oradea, Romania, is often overlooked by travelers that go straight to other Transylvanian cities such as Brasov, Cluj-Napoca, or Sighisoara, but the Baroque architecture that dates back to the Austro-Hungarian Empire makes the city quite picturesque. Almost a quarter of the citizens are ethnic Hungarians, and you can recognize some Hungarian influences in the city; it's not a weird thing if you realize that Oradea, Romania, is only eight kilometres away from the border with Hungary.

The already pretty architecture of Oradea, Romania, has recently undergone a major renovation, making the city centre look even better than before. Oradea’s main street Calea Republicii -- where most bars, shops, and restaurants are located -- is a vibrant pedestrian street with outdoor terraces in summer. Oradea, Romania, is a small city and can easily be seen in one day, but an extra day to enjoy the outdoor life in summer is never a bad idea. You will also need an extra day if you want to visit Baile Felix, a small town near Oradea. Due to its proximity to Thermal Springs, there are several spas to treat yourself on a day for relaxing.

Despite being a compact city, you may still want to consider the location when booking a Oradea, Romania hostel. The most vibrant area of the city is near Calea Republicii and you may want an Oradea, Romania hostel in walking distance from this street. There are also a few landmarks just south of the river, not too far from the south end of Calea Republicii, but this area is not as attractive as the previously mentioned street. If your Oradea, Romania hostel is a bit further from the centre, there is a cheap public transport system to get around. However, many lines run only once per half-hour or less.
