Traffic in Romania

Hello everyone,

Which city or area do you live in in Romania, and how do you find the traffic?

How long does it take to commute to work or run errands?

Is there a rush hour in your city? What times of the day would you recommend people to avoid driving if they can?

Are there any ways to avoid spending too much time in traffic in Romania?

What is parking availability and cost like?

Thank you for sharing your experience.


I live in Bucharest. The traffic here is terrible at peak hours, it often takes me 40 minutes to drive to work in what is normally just a 5 minute drive. So I don't drive to work very often and just use the tram, that though is about a 30 minute journey.

If you have ever tried to cross London or Tokyo by car you will realize that Bucharest is a breeze :)
