Cluj weekend trip si Electric Castle

[ENGLISH version of this article  available , just click HERE]

Dupa aproape un an am zis ca e timpul sa revad Clujul si  ce ocazie era mai buna sa mergi incolo daca nu in perioada Electric Castle festival. Nu am mers neaparat pentru festival dar tinand cont ca in ziua a patra a festivalului canta Prodigy parca imi facea cu ochiul.

Drumul a fost lung si in Romania dupa cum bine stiti infrastructura e in continuare la pamant . De la Constanta la Cluj Napoca sunt doar 687 de kilometri din care daca includ si noua sectiune de autostrada de la Sibiu la Sebes ajungem la aproape 400 de kilometri de autostrada , dar datorita sectiunii critice pe Continue reading

Cluj weekend trip and Electric Castle

[ pentru a citi articolul acesta in Limba Romana click AICI ]

After almost a year since I left the city , I decided it was time to revisit Cluj and and what better occasion to go than during the Electric Castle music festival. I did not go necessarily just for the festival but considering that the fourth day of the festival Prodigy was playing it became really attractive.

The road was long and as you know , Romania’s infrastructure is still lacking behind. From Constanta to Cluj Napoca are only 687 kilometers of which if you include the new section of motorway from Sibiu to Sebes there are almost 400 kilometers of motorway, but due to the fact that on the critical section of route from Pitesti to Sibiu where you cross the Olt Valley there is no motorway and the road there has Continue reading

[For Romanian version click here]

Because I had enough  of the  sadness and the feeling of a  dead city that  Constanta city offers outside of the summer season I decided to pack up  and try life Cluj Napoca – the capital of Transylvania . I visited the city before but only for the weekend period and I liked what I saw , and when I had  an opportunity I went to the car , filled the tank and  hit the road. Unfortunately  my living experience in  Cluj Napoca  was a bit short , I would have stayed there for about another two months but duty calls. I had good living conditions , we stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment with  a Continue reading

40 de zile in Cluj Napoca – review

[For English version click here]

Satul de tristetea si senzatia de oras mort pe care o ofera Constanta in afara sezonului de vara am decis sa imi iau talpasita si sa incerc Clujul – capitala Transilvaniei. Mai fusesem in vizita pe acolo pentru perioade de weekend si mi-a placut mult ce am vazut , si daca tot s-a ivit o ocazie pe acolo m-am suit in masina , umplut rezervorul si taiat-o la drum. Din pacate experienta locuitului in Cluj Napoca a fost cam scurta ,  as mai fi stat pe acolo inca vreo 2 luni dar ma cheama jobul.Am avut totusi conditii bune ,am stat intr-un apartament de 2 camere decent  in Manastur cu coleg , un amic Continue reading

Cluj Napoca weekend


Went for a short trip to Cluj Napoca or Klausenburg as the Germans  used to call it , the capital in the heart of Transilvania. This time i went without a car , took a train from Constanta to Bucharest , that was about 3 hours time and costed 60 RON , and I was supposed to take the morning 05:45 train to Cluj , but it was impossible to wake up at that time , so i Took the 9 AM bus , that made about 9 hours time , and costed 74 RON (leaves from Militari bus station).

Cluj , the same nice city that i enjoyed to see again , a place that while it is inside Romania , doesn’t quite feel like it , Continue reading
