Getting here by rail

There are several categories of train in Romania.

  • The “Personal” The lowest level, these trains are often old and rickety, and stop everywhere – even in the middle of fields in the middle of nowhere. But as local trains they make a great but slow experience for the adventurous.
  • The “Accelerat”, slightly faster than Personals, they stop less frequently as do the “Rapid”. These trains are often very new and modern stock.
  • The Intercity “IC” trains, which combine the best bits of the rapids (fast, clean, functioning systems) with the advantages of the personals (legroom and comfortable seats). The IC from Bucharest/Brasov to Cluj provides a very comfortable and efficient way to travel – with some carriages even having power sockets.
  • The Rapids and Inter Cities often have restaurant cars that can make for interesting places to meet locals. But be wary of accepting too much hospitality … or you may be wobbling off the train.
