Traveling by train or bus/minibus

Useful sites:

www.autogari.ro (for buses/minibuses)

In Romania many times the bus/minibus choices are more numerous, more practical, faster and cheaper, so we advise you to seriously take into account this option. Autogari.ro site provides all information needed.

The base destination is Sfantu Gheorghe (Covasna). There is no direct transportation towards the location and this year we decided not to try to organize yourself this since at the 2012 edition this was rather inefficient, but there are some helpful options:

– 2 buses per day Sfantu Gheorghe – Batanii Mari with Capitaly Comserv SRL company, hours 06:55 and 12:00, LINK with some detour because they go through Araci http://goo.gl/maps/0a8p2 (see the map). From Batanii Mari take the DJ122 road to Micfalau around 9 km until Murgo Restaurant, across which there is a big tank marked with ‘W’;

– 4 buses per day Sfantu Gheorghe – Targu Mures with Balint Trans company, hours 06:00, 08:00, 12:30 si 16:30, LINK that pass through Baraolt. Before entering Baraolt, at the sign, get down, cross the street and take the DJ122 road to Micfalau wich passes through Batanii Mari. From here there are about 18 km until Murgo Restaurant, across which there is a big tank marked with ‘W’;

By car:

If coming from the east or south of the country and pass through Brasov-Sfantu Gheorghe, or north and go through Ciuc, Targu Secuiesc, follow the signs to Micfalau. From Micfalau: Take the DJ122 road to Baraolt. Continue and in about 5 km in a right turn, on the left side you will see a tank marked with ‘W’ and on the right side restaurant Murgo. Go through the left of the tank on the dirt road. Pay attention to the road.

If coming from west of the country and go through Sibiu, Medias, Targu Mures, etc., take the road to Baraolt and then Batanii Mari. From Batanii Mari: take the DJ122 road to Micfalau. Continue approximately 9 km untill you will see, in a curve to the left, on the right side a tank marked with ‘W’ and on the left side a restaurant, Murgo. Continue through the right of the tank on the dirt road. Pay attention to the road.

Do not forget!! You can always orient yourself on the map, either physical or online – maps.google.com does wonders :)

Country info

On your way through the Balkan countries, including Romania: roads can have unsignaled damages, unexpected unsignaled vehicles could cross your way including horse-driven carriages, so much caution when driving in the night.

Speed limit in towns and villages is generally 50 km/h and there might be radars so also watch your speed (usually people signal with their headlights if you approach one but sometimes they don’t…). Police can take you to the precinct in case of something illegal, but you can give them small attentions ;) and be on your way. But try to respect the rules.

For travelling you should be cautious when changing money around airports and train stations, always check for commission and don’t trust people that want to change at a better rate, they usually have their hands faster than your eyes :)

Always check for the price per kilometer when you take a taxi, usual tariff should be 1.39 lei/km, airport and train station taxis are usually very expensive, from airports you also have buses going to Bucharest at lower prices. If you do take a taxi make sure the taxing device is started. Don’t make any deals with taxi drivers, they usually tell you it’s 50 euro to the city and in fact it’s around 7-8 euros.

In Romania drugs are of course illegal, including the festival site.
