By Rail

Interestingly enough, the original Orient Express train ran from Paris to Bucharest.

Today, international express trains connect the main central European capitals with Bucharest, then onwards to the Black Sea coast and some main cities. Romania is a member of the International Railway Tariff System, RIT, and Inter Rail.

Bucuresti North is the main train station at Bucharest (Gara de Nord, Blvd. Garii de Nord 2, Tel: 9521). The station is located just three miles from central Bucharest, and connects with both national and international cities throughout Europe.
