Weekend in Sibiu

September 29th, 2009 by UFO in Traveling

Last weekend I went to see Alina to Romania. I took a very early train from Brno to Arad. Of course I had a long delay because of tough passport checking at Hungarian-Romanian border. Fortunately I was in time to meet Alina in Arad and get in the next train to Sibiu in central Romania (there is only one direct train per day).

After arrival we took a cab to the hotel. I was very surprised about the hotel, everything was very nice there. We went to the hotel restaurant to take a dinner and try some of the local wines. It was delicious (and wine also quite strong :-D). We were very tired from the journey so we went to sleep early.

In the morning after breakfast we went to the city centre, where we strolled, took a lunch and climbed up a tower to see the whole city. You can see some pictures in the photo gallery.

Next day it was the time to go home again. But before that we went to see Arad for a while and take a lunch there. I took a train at 4 o'clock in the afternoon and I was home at 2 o'clock in the morning. Hopefully I could buy a menu in McDonald's in Budapest to not starve :-P.

The weekend was very relaxing for me (maybe except the nearly 2500 km spent in trains), I would like to repeat something like that again.

    You should check out Timisoara town also if you return. Great city full of history.
