Allow yourself at least 4 to 5 hours for a visit. We spent that long looking around the vast collection of buildings despite the interiors being closed for the winter, which was slightly disappointing. Also the authentic Romanian restaurant in the grounds is worth a...More

Dogs with little and medium size, and in leash, of course. It doesn't matter the hour but during the program of the ASTRA Museum (8 am-8 pm in Summer and 9 am-5 pm in Autumn). Enjoy your walk!

That sounds nice think about flying back from Cluj. Ukraine from Sighet is not that exciting unless you want to party all night then it has some serious potential. To see the Carpathian part of Ukraine you need a few days but its very beautiful.T he train is worth doing but you can comute from Breb even if its a bit of an early start. Rob

nature and hiking around sibiu (4 Replies)
Hi, I'll be visiting romania next month and planning a visit to sibiu. The main idea is focusing on the old town, but I wanted to know if you have a suggestion to a few hours outside the city in the nature if I don't feel like seeing museums and so on? I read about the ASTRA Museum of Traditional Folk Civilization in Dumbrava forest and wanted to know if there's something more "adventurous" (a few hours of hiking in the woods or something like that) to do. I would be happy to read...More

You could try heading towards Paltinis (a resort up in the mountains about 30 km/one hour away from Sibiu, there are several buses to it) - either get off the bus as soon as you enter the mountains (after the village Rasinari) and hike along the road or go all the way to Paltinis and start from there.

We are visiting my son, who is in Cluj. He has classes Monday and Tuesday until late afternoon, and Wednesday until 16:00.
