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
Anyway, be ready for a nice midnight walk in the hot
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
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.
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.
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: www.brown-sugar.ro
