I know this is a huge offtopic, but I trust you guys the most out of all the Romanians i've met before. -

So me, my wife and both of our families are going to visit Romania in spring. We came to this idea to visit Drakula castle. - That's just one point of the visit.

I like to plan ahead and I was wondering for a bit of a heads-up - what else to visit, where else to go, what to do, any good place to eat etc etc etc -

I already know that I'll be ordering some good cevapi - mici as you call them - since I'm into grill stuff.

I'd appreciate any heads-up. What to do, what not to do in the public places.

Also, what are some common swear words so that I know when someone swears at me - You may send those at PM -

Thanks guys, you're the best -

Lake Vidraru
Dunarea River

In Bucharest you don't have what to see besides Palatul Parlamentului and Biserica Stavropoleos who is almost 300 years old.

I found a video with almost everything I wrote above https://youtube.com/watch?v=0viZNlYrxuU:




Edit - i forget about foods. Best food in the world is in Romania, if you don't know - Most of them from Moldova, so if you plan to visit Iasi town or some villages from Moldova, try this:

Ciorba de fasole cu ciolan (Bean soup with hocks)
Iahnie de fasole cu afumatura (Bean paste with smoked meat)
Varza calita cu afumatura (Smoked cabbage with smoked meat)
Sarmale (Cabbage rolls)
Parjoale moldovenesti (Rissoles from Moldova)
Zacusca de vinete (Eggplant paste)
Slanina afumata (Smoked bacon)
Cozonac de casa (Sweetbread)
Salata boeuf (Beef salad)
Mamaliga cu branza si smantana (Corn meal with salty cheese and sour cream)
Clatite cu gem (Crepes with jam)
Carnati afumati (Smoked sausages)
Drob de miel (Lamb haggis)
Placinte cu branza dulce (Fried dough with sweet cheese)
Jumari cu ceapa (Greaves with onions)
Pomana porcului (pork feast)
and of course Mici (Grilled sausages) -

Thank you Syem for recommendations and for taking the time to write all of this.

This made me euphoric! Don't mind my enthusiasm -

So, basically, I can expect to see a lot of what I grew up eating the most. For the posterity and sharing some cultural insight I'll tell you how we call it in Serbia -

P.S. I adore to cook.

- Pasulj sa kolenicom
- Pasulj sa dimljenim mesom
(both of these are basically smoked to begin with, so yeah, it fits good either way)
- Podvarak (one difference though, it is not SMOKED cabbage here in Serbia, it's sour cabbage also known as sauerkraut in Eastern Germany (pickled cabbage, introduced by the Slavs) - if what you say is true, then I never tried smoked cabbage).
- Sarma (I have some currently, this is THE food ) - And it's also my favorite food. - I make it with a lot of smoked meat and bacon, cook for 2-3 hours, then put in the wood-fueled oven overnight for around 12-14 hours on low temperature. Many just cook it. I'm not many - It's tender as a soul.
- Fa¹irane ¹nicle (minced mixed pork/beef meat, fresh ground pepper, a bit of garlic, sweet onion, refined salt, bread crumbs or flour, one egg, parsley etc deep fried, can add anything really)
- I like how it's called "ZAKUSKA" for Ajvar - We also say Za-(kus)-ka for some meal that we eat before the main dish like "try this before this", sort of like a small meal, a delight of sorts. I think the word is slavic of origin. Ajvar is specifically prominent in Makedonija (Macedonia), although it were the Turks who brought it to the Balkan. Ajvar is basically "Caviar for the poor", ergo the name (Ay-war)Ajvar/Caviar.
- Slanina is life - (and we also call it Slanina - Slaa-nee-naa). I thought Romanians have a different name for it. Surprise So I can just go into a restaurant and say "Slanina" and I'm all good -
- Interesting name for the Russian salad (as we call it here), although it's actually Olivier salad (as we never call it here). I make a lot of it for Serbian slava - I don't use actual beef, just ham chopped in little cubes.
- This looks like Palenta with pavlaka/kajmak. Kids grow up on these for breakfast etc... I actually hate it from the bottom of my soul -
- Palacinke sa dzemom (Grandma's specialty for any kid, whatsoever). nowadays you can buy them anywhere, but I still prefer the homemade version. Dzem usually was made out of Sipurak. Not sure for the English name for the plant.
- Carna-ti afumati, basically yeah, we have Cajna, Sremska kobasica, Kranjska kobasica etc. Serbia's big on eating meat, too! A lot of meat. I like that I can find the same in Romania!!!
- DROB DE MIEL <----- This is the only food new to me. What is this and how do I make one - - I need information -
- Looks like Lenja Pita (it's a bit bad for the teeth tho - )
- Èvarci (super unhealthy - we have Duvan cvarci, too. It's basically tobacco infused pork greasy meat/chops whatsoever + bacon. Kind of expensive, too)
- Pomana Porculi - Usually given during the winter days, when the pigs are slaughtered...
- Surprise You said sausages for cevapi (mici) Surprise Blasphemy Syem -
Sausages have to be filled inside a container, whilst Cevapi (Mici) are hand-made and made with love - ( - ). To be fair, they are sausage-shaped-like, but are nothing sausage-like.
If you ever come to Serbia or Bosnia, this would be a "no-no" thing to say (in Bosnia more so than Serbia, though)

So that settles it - going to visit tripadvisor.com for the traditional cuisine of Romania!

This depends upon our travel agency, but I hope that it also includes București. I'm not sure about the geographical difference between the places nor about the longevity of our stay.

I think it'd be 3-4 days tops. :(

Yea, my mistake about "mici" -)) is a mixt with beef meat and pork meat, garlic, concentrated beef soup, pepper and thyme. So yea, if you go to Romania for traditional food, try Moldova-Bucovina region, the north-east side. Botosani, Iasi, Suceava, Piatra Neamt, Vatra Dornei.

Sarmale with smantana (sour cream) and mamaliga is also my favorite -
Ciorba de fasole cu ciolan
Iahnie de fasole cu afumatura
Varza calita cu afumatura

This 4 you need to eat, is mandatory -)) all 4 with mamaliga, not bread. The last 3 with mamaliga and muraturi (pickles).
This is muraturi:

Oh, Tursija -

Prebranac

Yeah, we have same food. Big news, huh? - - -

Yeah, about Mici. If you say in Bosnia it's a sausage - they might throw something at you. In Serbia you're still kinda safe -

Guys, thanks a bunch! Any tip for the public transport in Bucuresti?

Public transport it s not expensive at all comparing to other countries here is much cheaper.

Although...you can take the subway to travel fast, depending on where you stay and where you wanna go. Montly pass( unlimited travel) - 16-17 euros. Week pass( unlimited travel) - it's 5 euros.

Buses sometimes get busy and traffic very intense. But the ticket card you can buy it for one month with only 50 lei- 10 euros. not much.

For Taxies .... Prefferable UBER or TAXIFY than the actual TAXI. UBER &TAXIFY are sometimes cheaper and the level on confort is HIGHER.

If you have other questions bring them on -

Cool. Thanks.

What do I need for the weekly pass? Passport/I.D. or is it prepaid?

Any good hostels with good wifi in Bucuresti in the city center?

Do I have to visit the police center/station to report my stay after the arrival?

1- you don t need anything, no id no passport just buy it as it is.

2- don t go to hostels. Search on AIRBNB better. MUUUUUUCH BETTER than staying in a hostel with other dudes.

P.S : romania is the land of wifi -

3- you don t have to go to report anything to the police station. you just enter the country through the customs and that s it.

other questions i ll be glad to answer you. BTW i have your cousing Vojin on facebook -

Avoid to take TAXI, if they notice that you are a stranger, you will pay much more than usual (applies anywhere in Romania). Use subway. I doubt you want to get to the edge of the city, so subway will get you anywhere and fast. Don't worry about internet, any hotels or restaurants from the center will have wifi.
Don't need to speak with police or tell anyone anything, just enjoy. In Bucharest almost anyone understand english so if you have some problems, someone can help you or show you the way. Usual we like strangers and we are kind with them, trying to help them as much as we can. With TAXI drivers is difficult because most of them are gipsy - so if they have a chance to trick/steal you, they will do it without hesitating.

Romania and Serbia are very much alike in terms of the culture and history.

I like history a lot, but I try to avoid anything political along the way.

Politics is an extremely dangerous topic in Serbia, though. Same with the football.

Reason :

Red Star vs Partizan

So, yeah, if you come here to Serbia absolutely avoid topics of Football and Politics.



My point is - Any topics i should avoid in Romania? -
