From Yalta to Budapest through the heart of Balkans

Recommended Posts

Hi,

my name is Corrado and I'm Italian.

Starting on April the 29th, myself and two friends of mine, we will start a cycle trip across Europe named "From Yalta to Budapest through the heart of Balkans" crossing South Ukraine, Moldova, Romania, Bulgaria, Croatia and Hungary.

Now it's almost time to go ... so from now on, the trip will continue here:

Hello Corrado,

I salute your initiative and I want to join you between Drobeta Turnu Severin (Romania) till Osijek (Croatia). My only wish and suggestion is to cycle on serbian part of the Danube which is more spectacular.

How can we get in touch?

My email adress is claudiumoga@yahoo.com and cell phone number (0040) 736 916 441.

Hi Claudiu,

it will a pleasure to share part of the trip with you.

We are in three and generally we will use b&b but we will carry also a tent in case of difficulty to find some place to sleep.

At the link below (i.e. the Italian forum of "Il Cicloviaggiatore") you will find approximate dates of our trip.

A few days before arriving in Dobreta I'll get for sure in touch with you.

Hi Corrado,

Thank you very much for accepting me to join you for a few days in your trip.

I know Italy a bit and I cycled with italian cycletourists in 2007. I love your country and your people. I'm looking forward to cycling with you. I will have a long tour, I'll cycle till Amsterdam and I am from Ineu, the district of Arad.

So I'll start my trip at about 20th of may, on 27th of may I'll be near Drobeta in the morning when you cross to Serbia's borders, I'll be there waiting for you.

We just have to get into touch when you know exactly when you will be at Drobeta. For I want to join you since Iron Gate or Gura Vaii border with Serbia.

As I don't have a laptop I would ask you please to send me a SMS just one day before you get to Iron Gate or when you are in Drobeta.

I wish you a great journey till than and I can't wait to see you and cycle with you!

Best wishes,

Claudiu

We arrived in Tulcea today and tomorrow it's our intention to continue our trip to Costanta.

It appears that the DN22 is the more straightforward road.

One question: since the distance is more or less 127 km, how is the route from the point of view of slopes ?

Is it maybe like the Galati-Tulcea 8-X

Thank you for the answers.

Corrado

You have reached the most beautiful part of your trip, and you should take at least a day off and visit the Danube Delta. Rent a boat and have a day trip, you will see many amazing things. There are also some cycling routes.

Here are some links:

DN22 has its share of slopes, but is easier than Galati-Tulcea road which passed through the old Macinului mountains.
