10 questions you will make (maybe) before going to Romania

Do you have all the things you would like to know before you leave for a trip? I picked up the questions I had made and what I was doing before leaving for Romania, and since my mother was with me, I assure you, other questions do not know if you can find them, but If it were, let me also leave comments in order to update the answers (where I have them).
Here are some questions and answers about things to know before going to Romania.
1. But do I find fruit and vegetables in supermarkets? Or Cereals and Organic Products? Or Yogurt and Milk? OR…
In Romania there is everything. The images of the queues in communist times to take some bread (fortunately) are now in black and white and here is all well of God. From Mac Donanld to JFK and Starbucks inevitable in that of Bucharest.
2. But can a woman turn alone, or is she embarrassed?
I would not want to disappoint you, but in Romania there are some of the most beautiful women in Europe and unable to respond in a broad way, I can only tell you that I went to Romania alone. Turning alone. With much serenity … and equally indifferent. I did not spin anyone (and so it is).
3. Do you pay for the euro in Romania or do I have to change my money?
It needs to change the money. In Romania there is no euro despite being in the European community since 2007, but here you pay in LEI, the local currency is worth about 1 euro = 4.10 lei as a change.
4. Where should I change my money?
Again in this case (as in almost all cases usually), it is advisable to change them to a bank. Or prefer the city’s changes to those in the airport. Personally, I found a better exchange in the city, in the exchange offices rather than picking it up with the ATM, but I think it also depends on bank at the bank.
5. What are the hours of restaurants to eat?
It always depends on the places, but in general, in Romania you eat a bit at all hours, so nobody will tell you when you will be at 15.00 in a restaurant at 15.00 despite the time. Only consider with the smaller and traditional seats closing the restaurant at 22. If we already talk about Bucharest, no problem.
6. How are the roads and highways in Romania?
Let’s say there’s still a long way to go. Ceauşescu and the communist party of his years were the first to build the current highway and the main infrastructure, to say that it is about recent work but at the same time there are still a few high-speed roads. Outside the highway there are only state roads, some very unspoiled if you are talking about reaching smaller villages. As a whole, it turns serenely, but do not be surprised to use either 2 or 3 hours for 100 km.
7. How is driving in Romania?
Nothing to declare. I have seen respect for road code and limits as much as we do. And I add: just foot your foot on the pedestrian stripes, crazy, but stop all though they were going fast. In Milan, no really! It speeds up.
8. But is Bucharest going to visit or is it better to go so far that everyone says it’s ugly?
Do not miss the visit of Bucharest and evaluate yourself. For me it was a real discovery and I loved visiting the Parliament Building but also discovering the history of the city and going around the restaurants and streets of the center. I definitely liked it very much. You then make a personal decision, but I will never jump.
9. What is the cost of living? How much does it cost to eat out or sleep?
We talk about the cost of living for us Italians rather low and definitely for our benefit especially if you consider that the average salary for a Romanian is from 200 to 600 euro’s per month. Definitely different than the average.
As a result you can eat serenely in restaurants with an average of € 10/15 and sleep in the B & Bs with 20 euro’s for a single and 15 euro’s for double.
10. What are the typical dishes of the Romana cuisine to be absolutely tasted?
We speak of a very refreshing and satisfying kitchen. First you need to mark the Ciorba, or a soup you find in a thousand different ways and almost always present. Then try Sarmale, though I found it tiring after a while but good: rolls of cabbage or vine leaves or cabbage stuffed with pork, rice and other vegetables and spices. Then one thing I did not do in time to find: the Tochitura, with pork, eggs, garlic and polenta (I have the water). Finally the typical sweet of here: the Papanasi, I just tell you that I saw men in difficulty unable to finish seeing the portions abundant … But after ordering a nice grappa of the place and passes the fear.
