Trains Bucharest Nord

Next month I am traveling from Bucharest to Brasov to Cluj by train will I be able to purchase all the tickets I need in Bucharest station? After this I’m going up through Budapest, Bratislava, Vienna, Brno, Olomouc, Ostrava and Krakow so any tips that might be helpful will be good as well.

You can buy tickets for Bucharest - Brasov - Cluj in Bucharest (separate tickets for each part) but trains are increasingly busy, it's best to book tickets at least one day before the trip. This is a must if you're traveling during the weekend.

Booking can be done online on the railway company's website https://www.cfrcalatori.ro/en (they have a guide https:/… )

Try to make a stop in Sighisoara as well.

For Cluj to Budapest it might be better to take a bus.

Thanks I tried using the Romanian trains site but I could never get the new user registration to work. I will probably go to Bucharest station the morning after I arrive.

Cheers Darren.

Read the guide again: https:/…

If you're going on a weekend/holiday morning it's likely you won't find seats at the last minute.

It probably stored that name when you attempted to create an account the first time. Did you receive anything via email ?

Thanks I had an e-mail in my junk folder so I think I can sort it now! Any good pubs you can recommend with local beer?

I cannot thank you enough!
