Traveling through Romania and Ukraine for the first time in April of '09.
Right now I am looking at visiting:
Sighisoara, Brasov, Curtea de Arges (to see Poenari Castle) and Bucharest while in Romania.
I'm trying to get up to L'viv(Lvov) Ukraine but seeing nothing but multi-day (24hr+) train rides from Bucharest; this is according to DB Bahn.
Wanted to get over to Odessa and up to Kiev, but if it takes this long to get around I will just settle for L'viv.
Anyone have tips on traveling via train in Romania and Ukraine?
Is the only option from Bucharest to travel to Northern Romania, spend a night then depart to L'viv?
Have also looked for cheap flights out of Bucharest to Ukraine, but have had no luck there too.
Any help or suggestions will be greatly appreciated!
