Vatra-Moldovitei is a village near Suceava, in the North-East of the country. Suceava has an airport but unfortunately now it is closed (it is being modernized). So the travel by train will be a little longer, but we assure you that it is worth spending this time. When you will arrive at Vatra-Moldovitei, you will forget you are tired and you will recover your forces in no time (maybe after jumping in the swimming pool!☺ ). As compensation, the train is much cheaper than the plane. This is what you should do: A. If you travel by plane: 1. Take the plane to Bucharest – round ticket. You have to arrive in Bucharest on 3 October, preferably before 4 am, but not later than 9 am, so as to catch a convenient train from Bucharest to Suceava. You can leave on the 11 October starting with 19.00-20.00 the soonest (we will leave VatraMoldovitei by bus at 07.00, we will arrive at Suceava at 08.00. The train from Suceava is at 08.46 and will arrive in Bucharest at 15.51. You need at least one hour to get to the airport and 2 hours for boarding. 2. Take a cab from the airport to Gara de Nord (Northern station). TAKE ONLY THE CABS ACREDITED BY THE AIRPORT! Ask the airport personal and they will tell you exactly where to go for accredited cabs. IT IS RISKY TO TAKE OTHER CABS (both for your personal security and from a financial point of view)!! The price will be approximately 25-30 lei (less than 7 euro). It takes approximately 30-45 minutes, depending on the traffic.
If somehow the driver asks for more money, you will urgently call me and I will talk to him. 3. From Bucharest Gara de Nord you will take one of the following trains to Suceava: – on 2 October; leaves Bucharest at 23.30 and arrives at Suceava on 3 October at 06.20.
