Getting around the city

"Piața Victoriei" station

Public transportation (by bus/ trolley/tram):

Regular fare is 1,3 LEI per person per trip. We use electronic card system, upon purchase there is a small fee for the card itself. Best option is to get an Active Non-nominal Card (Card activ nenominal) and charge it with the amount of trips you need for everyone in your group (max. value to charge at once is 50 LEI) and enjoy your trips. Not all stops have a ticket booth. For every person in your group, please validate by pressing button 2 on the machines in the bus.


Please allow plenty of time for this option, as there is not so strict schedule. More information on RATB website (the Autonomous Transportation Enterprise of Bucharest). There is also the option of purchasing day ticket or Express Line ticket through SMS (details: http://www.ratb.ro/sms_new.php).

By subway:

This is the fastest way to get around. For Grade Exams the stop is "Gara de Nord" station. Please note there is no subway stop around the feis venue, but good bus connections are through "Piaţa Unirii" station. Trip cards available: 2 trips (5 LEI), 10 trips (20 LEI). We would recommend the 10 trips card, especially for groups. More information on Metrorex website.

By taxi or Uber:

Lots of taxis available, but we recommend you order yours, not take it from the streets. You can look for Star Taxi app or Clever Taxi app, they are compatible with any device and there is plenty of WiFi anywhere, so you can order one. Uber is also very accessible and a preferred option by most of us.

Car rental:

There are multiple options, including car rental booths right in the airport.
