Get in

By plane

The largest airport in the region is the Mihail Kogălniceanu International Airport [3], not so conveniently located some 25 km north-west of Constanta. Usually, Carpatair [4] flies three times per week from Timisoara, Tarom [5] flies once weekly from Bucharest and Istanbul, but in summer there are also weekly flights to and from Budapest, Düsseldorf, Frankfurt, Ljubljana, Strasbourg, Minsk, Oslo and also from major cities in Romania.

There is also another airport [6] near Tulcea; starting in summer 2007 Tarom will have direct flights to it from Bucharest.

Ryanair flies from Constanta to Pisa and viceversa 2 times a week.

By train

There are 7 - 8 daily trains from Bucharest to Constanta (note that many of them leave from Bucharest's Obor train station, not from Gara de Nord). In summer there are direct trains to Constanta from most regions in Romania ( from cities like Cluj, Oradea, Brasov, Timisoara, Iasi etc).

The only direct train from Bucharest to Tulcea leaves from Bucharest Obor train station.

Check train timetables online [7].

By car

The partially completed Bucharest - Constanta motorway has considerably improved travel times by car to this region.

Buses and minibuses from Bucharest to Constanta and the Black Sea resorts are very frequent; check online [8] for timetables. There are also buses from Istanbul to Constanta.

In summer there are direct buses to/from various cities in Romania, but also across the border to the resorts on the Bulgarian Black Sea coast and to Varna.
