Default Hello all from Romania

Hi!

My name is Nicolae Sasu, from Cluj-Napoca, Romania. I work as a desktop publisher for a printing house here in Cluj. I've been doing this type of work since 2001 when I got hired as a DTP operator at a small printing house in my home town.

I recently found this great forum and I hope I will find (and hopefully provide) usefull informations.


Have a great day everyone!

Nicu

Welcome Nicu,

What a beautiful city you live and work in -- I just dropped Cluj-Napoca, Romania into Google Earth and it took me there.

The center at street view on that bright sunny day is wonderful and if you have 3-D buildings set to ON and exit street view someone has put a lot of work into creating the 3-D images of the main buildings!

And I don't think I've ever seen so many trees as in the countryside around!

I found also an entry for Cluj-Napoca in WikiPedia (which itself links to several sub pages). Looks well worth a visit!

(Bucharest is already high on my 'must visit' list.)

Default Thanks

Thank you for the warm welcome. And also thanks for such nice words about Cluj-Napoca.

I recommend at least a weekend visit to Cluj, please let me know if anyone intends to visit it. I can recommend some very nice/not too expensive hotels, places to visit etc.

Marjolein, Amsterdam is a very lovely city, I love it and Lois, I always wanted to visit England and I hope I will soon. Hugh, what city/country are you from?


Have a nice weekend everyone (what's left of it).

Nicu

Thank you Nicu! Noted and bookmarked. I might expand my idea of a week in Bucharest (this autumn) a bit since I'll have to postpone my planned trip to China... Just found this page which tells me "There are daily INTERCITY (Express) trains connecting Cluj Napoca with Bucharest (journey time: 8 hours)". Looking at the little map on that page, that might be a lovely trip, too (and I love train travel). Maybe a little longer than a weekend.

I'll definitely let you know if this becomes more of a plan rather than just an idea...

Hi Nicu,

I'm originally from Britain (Wales so I don't say England <s>) but I live in the USA now, in Florida.
