Weekend in Oradea

November 18th, 2009 by UFO in Traveling

I had another of my traveling weekends to visit Alina in Romania. This time, we chose to see the city of Oradea. Czech railways did not surprise again. When I came to Brno trainstation, the train had already been delayed for almost an hour. That is why i missed the change in Budapest and had to wait three hours there. I think I am getting used to that.

It was raining heavily in Oradea, so we just went to the hotel and then to grab some beers in the pub nearby :-).

Next day we walked in the city to see all of the important sights and also visited the Oradea Zoo. The animals were mostly taken from the forest and put into tiny dirty cages. I was quite depressing to see that. You can see that from the pictures.

We finished our day by going to the cinema to watch the Christmas Carol, which was a movie I liked very much. Before sleeping we went to the Cyrano restaurant for a dinner. The meal was simply delicious :-P. And the amount of food was so big, that I had a lunch for a journey home from that :-).

The way back to Brno was long, I had to wait in Budapest for four hours. I used that time to had coffee and cake in McDonald's and then go to Tesco to buy some souvenirs, e.g. wine and palinka :-D.
