How to get there

The proximity of the city of Sibiu (about 20 km distant), right in the centre of Romania and with an international airport, makes it easy to get to Sibiel. There are many transport possibilities for those coming from the countries of western, central and northern Europe. There are many taxis available in the locality.

Air links
Daily or weekly flights to Sibiu are available from many European cities, operated by airlines such as Tarom, Austrian Airlines, Lufthansa, Carpatair and Blue Air. Low-cost airlines fly to Sibiu, to Bucharest (about six hours by car from Sibiel) and to Cluj-Napoca (about three hours from Sibiel).

Travellers from the west or the north can enter Romania via the Serbian-Romanian border (citizens of the European Union need a passport) or via the Hungarian-Romanian border (here an indentity-card suffices for citizens of the European Union). Entering into Romania, drivers must purchase a vehicle-coupon («rovinieta») which permits one to drive throughout the country. These coupons can be obtained at dedicated offices at the frontier for a modest fee - in the region of €15-€20, and depending on the amount of time one intends to spend in the country.

As well as trips organized by different tour-operators, international bus companies link Sibiu with various European cities. The Atlassib company has a widespread and well-run service network. Eurolines also offer a long-distance bus-service.

Information concerning international rail connections can be found of the site German Railways.
