Romania - Transylvania

Hi - We are planning to go cycling in Romania in June for about 10 days, starting off from Sighisaora (one of us, not me, is doing an ultra marathon there). Any tips on where to go around there, if there's any good maps, how easy it is to find accommodation in villages (where there aren't warm shower hosts!), do we need to book in advance, should we take tents etc? I've never been to Romania and know very little about it so any info much appreciated!

Thanks

Hi :)

Hi :)

Two places in Romania I love: Sibiu and Alba Iulia. Sibiu is a European capital of culture of 2007, a beautiful small city with a bunch of hostels in the centre. Alba Iulia doesn't look so nice in the beginning but you can find there a huge XVIII century fortress with Roman ruins inside ;)
As for accomodation: If you take tents it is quite possible that in smaller towns you can simply ask people if they can allow you to stay on their yard for the night for a small price. If not, don't worry. Hostels are quite popular.
