How to get to the city

By plane: Bucharest has two airports: Henri Coanda ( Otopeni ) for regular airlines and Aurel Vlaicu ( Baneasa ) for low-cost airlines. Take a taxi ( only official taxis ! ) to the centre of the city or directly to your hotel. By train: You arrive at the main station ( North Station ); it is well serviced by the underground train ( metro ). Or, take a taxi ( official ! ) to your hotel. By car: the traffic in Bucharest is real bad. Be careful.

International air companies: TAROM, AUSTRIAN Airlines, CSA Airlines, Malev, Turkish Airlines, Alitalia, Air France, KLM, Iberia, Delta Airlines, Brussels Airways, British Airways, Olympic Airways.

Low cost companies: BLUE AIR (from Italy, France, Spain, Belgium, Germany, Turkey), Sky Europe (from Austria, Italy), Wizz Air (from UK, Italy, Hungary)

There are also trains to Bucharest - North Station.


How to get to the venue

The best way: from any point of the city: go to the nearest underground station; go towards line 1 ( one ), station " Piata Muncii ". Then take a walk on Boulevard Basarabia; after a 15 minutes walk you will find on your left hand side a nice park which includes the "Lia Manoliu Stadium" The public transport is almost off by midnight; there is no info about some special lines for the concert. So, after the concert you may want to stop for a beer in a bar near the venue, then walk to nearest taxi station. Anyway, be ready for a nice midnight walk in the hot summer night...

Travel information

The public surface transport is bad; therefore everybody is using the personal car which makes the traffic awful between 5 and 7 pm. You can rely on the metro or, take a long walk. The taxi is cheap; 10 euros will take you from the city center to the venue, only if you prefer to wait in the car instead of anything.

Venue maps

The Lia Manoliu Stadium is the biggest stadium in Bucharest; the access is via Boulevard Basarabia and "Maior Coravu " street. Take a look at the venue map; areas 34 and 35 are oriented to Boulevard Basarabia ( see map), while the stage is opposite.

Recommended hotels

Tulip Inn Times is the cloesest hotel from the stadium, 2 minutes walk from the metro station and from bus station (bus number 104)

The hotels are ok, slightly better in each class than other European cities. Try to book via an agency; it is cheaper than at the desk. Bucharest is not a big tourist attraction; there is no special crowd in summer; by contrary, everybody is running out from the heat.

Recommended bars/restaurants

A lot of friendly, open air bars and restaurants. Near the venue, in the park, under the trees, you will find some nice open air bars with excellent beers. Try Brown Sugar at only 15 mins walking time or 5 mins taxi drive from the venue:
