Giurgiu is a city in Muntenia, on the northern bank of the Danube river. It's a major crossing point between Romania and Bulgaria.

Get in

By bus

There are frequent buses from Bucharest (at least one per hour), trip takes about slightly over one hour. There are also a few buses per day to/from Rousse, the Bulgarian city across the river (coming and heading to Bucharest), but note they practically pass on the outskirts of Giurgiu.

By train

There are several direct trains daily to/from Bucharest (international trains linking the Romanian capital with Sofia, Istanbul, Thessaloniki); they're rather slow ( at least 2 1/2 hours to get to Bucharest).


Get around

The city has a small public transport network (four bus lines).
