SOME THINGS WORTH KNOWING
Time: Romania has another time zone, do not
forget to count one extra hour.
Visa: Are not necessary for inhabitants of
The through traffic roads in Romania are passable till good,
with exception of bridges and in the built up area (specially in
the towns). Road marks are not always available, so pay good
attention at the traffic signs (missing marks on pedestrian
crossings!). Driving in the dark means extra risk, because many
vehicles (horse wagons!) do not carry lights. Slow down, drive as
close as possible to the axis of the road and dim your lights as
short as possible.
Maximum speed motor vehicles: in the built up
area 50 km/h, outside the built up area 90 km/h.
Seat belts: are obliged. Smoking, changing
the wireless program or mobile phone calls is forbidden during
the driving (will be heavily punished). Vehicles of public
traffic, which are leaving a stop, have right of way.
Motor fuel: is cheap, just as going out
eating. Unleaded fuel (Benzina fara plumb) is practical
everywhere available, auto gas especially in towns (Oradea,
Floresti and Cluj).
Money: the easiest way is to take cash money
with you (€ and $). Exchange rate € is at the moment
about 4.20 Lei. You can exchange money at the exchange offices
(cheapest rate and no costs) and at the banks. The banks are open
from Monday till Friday from 09.00 – 15.00 h. Exchange
offices mostly whole day, some non-stop (24 hours). Everywhere
you get a ticket, foreigners have to show their passport. Do not
exchange big amounts, Romania is a cheap country and it is not
allowed to import or export Romanian money without limits. In
town you can also get money from the pin automate and pay with

stations. In our campsite is also a public phone; telephone cards
