"Going to Bucharest from the Otopeni Airport" Bucharest Transportation Tip by adema29

Bucharest Transportation: 132 reviews and 168 photos

You don't have to panic going to Romania... there is not so bad as you've seen it at the news :)
I would reccommend to use the "info screens" on the Arrival Terminal in Otopeni.
You'll find there, for free, all the information you need about transportation and not only.
It isn't a train station at the airport yet, but there is a special bus helping you to get to the nearest Train Station.
If you'll take a taxi from the airport to the Bucharest, ask the driver to start the meter.
And check first the rates, ussualy spoted on the car's doors. The differences are amazingly high.

You may have the surprise to find a taxi driver speaking a good english :)
So, enjoy your time in Romania!
