  1. Believe it or not Sneckboy Romania does actually have a national health service providing free healthcare to all citizens and financed by the state. The quotes above are not directly linked, but are both related this post, which will hopefully clarify an earlier post I made. I apologise to Neil for taking umbrage over what was simply a difference of opinion on 'semantics'. I read the acronym 'NHS' as the 'National Health service (UK), and I understand that by 'Romanian NHS', you were simply referring to (the equivalent) 'Romanian national health service'. Apology accepted, thanks. Hats off
  2. Not sure if I understand your post but sorry if you have been offended by it. I don't think my wording was wrong because I was referring to the "free" Health Service of the Nation of Romania and what I was suggesting is that it is a long way from our NHS. I won't go into detail on these pages. If someone is unlucky enough to have a problem they are better seeking private care, the cost of which will hopefully be covered by your insurance.
  3. Remember to take your EHIC - European Health Insurance Card. http://www.nhs.uk/NHSEngland/Healthcareabroad/EHIC/Pages/about-the-ehic.aspx It allows you to use the Romanian NHS however you DO NOT want to. Make sure you have travel insurance.
  4. Good to highlight that, JagXE might be worth checking as its just as important not to take it if its not required. Or keep it in the safe and take a driving licence card instead Pretty sure I didn't in the games I've been to. Romania is one of those countries where you have to carry your ID card for everything. Probably a good shout regarding the driving licence though. A good tip anyway is to take a photocopy of your passport abroad. Maker it easier to get a replacement if it goes missing.
  5. Depends how upmarket the pub. Not as much as a bargain as the beer but you should get a bigger measure than at home. Also you will pay more for well known names Smirnoff, Gibleys, Glenfiddich than less known.
  6. Is it possible to overpay for the bus as a thank you to DBJ? Or we could just buy him 170 pints?

  8. I was at their qualifying game against Stromgodset last season. Nice shiny new stadium and their ultras are pretty mental but a lot of turmoil at the club at the moment. The army have taken away their badge! http://www.espnfc.com/blog/espn-fc-united/68/post/2497187/dinamo-steaua-bucharest-derby-nick-ames Interesting. Do you think Marius Niculae will be at the game or did the transfer dispute leave bad feelings? His old agent is an Inverness lad who lives out there with his Romanian wife. I was in touch with him about this trip. He says Marius is on holiday at the moment so he wasn't sur
  9. From Bucharest in your pocket Romania’s currency is the leu (plural lei), divided into 100 bani. Leu notes come in denominations of 500, 200, 100, 50, 10, 5 and 1. There are also 50, 10, 5 and 1bani coins. €1 is cur - rently worth 4.44 lei. The best place to get your hands on lei is at an ATM. If you have to change cash, do it inside a bank. Credit and debit cards (MasterCard and Visa) are accepted almost everywhere. American Express cards are less widely accepted, but can usually be used in Bancpost ATMs. In most places I would use lei. roughly 5 lei = £1. Beer = 5-10 lei. A meal + drin

  11. If anyone is there by Tuesday they could take in the Steaua Bucharest Champions League game. If all games kick off at 7:45pm UK that would be 9:45pm in Bucharest. Game will probably be in the National Stadium as there are no other stadiums in Romania that meet CL guidelines. I went to a 2nd round game a few years ago and I think it was £8!
  12. The Dubliner is out on its own. You are better off in the old town with lots of choice of food/drink.
  13. There are half-a-dozen streets like this criss-crossing each other
