Hi has anyone done the return journey back to the UK via Constanta and onto the Bucharest motorway A2. Any advice would be much appreciated. Ive always gone over the Ruse bridge into Romania but wanted to try and find a quicker route and thought that the motorway would do this. Thank you

Hi we came that way through Romania to BG. There are no bridges after Ruse ,its a ferry and not a very good one at that, it takes you from Silistra to RO but the road to the motorway is not good and not very well signposted, hope this helps? Think Ruse bridge is best bet!

Thanks for the reply Loupylou, but I live near to the Romanian border so will go to Constanta via the border crossing at Kardam, no bridge or ferry cos no danube. What I really need to know is, if anyone can tell me, which way to go once Im on the main road in Constanta. Its a mine field, roads and traffic everywhere and Ive been told that there is now a motorway that goes most of the way up and round Bucharest. I just have to find my way onto it, easier said than done. Once again thanks for your reply. xxxx

had this from another site not so long ago it might help you should be able to make up your own route with this by chopping and changing a few things good luck

The easiest ways to reach Constanta is by road and by train. Being a major Romanian city, Constanta is part of the InterCity network of fast and comfortable trains linking the main Romanian cities. Not only that, but the number of incoming and outgoing trains is heavily supplemented during the summer.

By road, Constanta is reachable from Bucharest via "
Autostrada Soarelui"
("
The Sun's Highway"
or "
A2"
in short). Unfortunately, right now the highway is only fully operational on the Bucharest - Drajna and Fetesti - Cernavoda section (~120 km), with the Drajna - Fetesti section opened on only one side and works on the Cernavoda - Constanta section having yet to begin. The highway, along with the new Constanta beltway, should be fully usable no later than 2010.

If you're coming from Bulgaria, then there are only 60 km from the Bulgarian border at Vama Veche and Constanta that you can easily and comfortably drive through using the existing European road which is in quite fine conditions. If it's summer though, you may encounter huge traffic problems between Mangalia and Constanta and the 60 km drive may take you a couple of hours.

You can also reach Constanta by plane, the frequency of flights to the nearby Mihail Kogalniceanu International Airport increasing during summer. The airport is located 30 km northwest of the city in the town of Mihail Kogalniceanu. Believe it or not, there aren't currently any flights between Constanta and Bucharest due to the main national flights operator TAROM having the quirky idea of providing a bus service in order to "
cut costs"
. There are many charther flights though during summer as well as flights from the second biggest Romanian airline, Carpatair, linking Constanta with Timisoara and from there onwards with major European destinations such as Vienna, cities in southern Europe (Spain, Italy) or Germany and vice-versa. The Hungarian airline Malev is also offering flights between Constanta and Budapest. If you plan to reach the city fully by plane, you'd be better off taking a flight from where you are to Budapest and from there another one to Constanta rather than taking the Bucharest route.

By sea, Constanta can be reached either through the Constanta - Istanbul ferryboat (MV Arielle;
travel time: 10 hours), available during summer, or through different cruises that have Constanta on their itinerary.

Constanta lies between the two branches of the Danube - Black Sea canal, branches that end up at Navodari (the northern one) and at Agigea in Constanta harbour (the southern one). You can also reach the city by taking the various cruise ships from Germany, Austria, Slovakia or Hungary that have Constanta as their final destination.

If you're a yacht owner you can also get to Constanta with it. The main harbour for such boats is the Tomis harbour which is situated quite close to the old city and the city center.
