Hi, Lena! If you want to stay in Bucharest, you can take a one day trip to some areas: visit wineries & manors around Bucharest by car rental , visit the mountains by train ( Sinaia, Busteni, Brasov), lakes around Bucharest, visit Comana National Park by car rental .

Enjoy your stay,

Thank you Elena. How many days do you think is ideal? i have booked 3 nights so far
I'd say at least 5 nights to avoid being tired from spending time on the road trips. You will probably want spend 1-2 days in Bucharest as well, as there are a lot of things to visit in the city also. By the way, for car rental I also recommend one day trip to Transfgarasan & Balea Lac. It has the most amazing mountain road: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tq4ydUVgYTY . Cheers, Elena

Yes, if you want flexibility you can rent a car and drive to other cities.

If you don't like driving, you can take the train, but only some cities have good connections. Ex: you can take the train to Brasov or to Constanta. It is faster then by car sometimes.
Here you can check the prices and time to get there https://mersultrenurilor.infofer.ro/en-GB/Itineraries?DepartureStationName=&ArrivalStationName=&DepartureDate=10.08.2018&TimeSelectionId=0&MinutesInDay=0&ChangeStationName=&DepartureTrainRunningNumber=&ArrivalTrainRunningNumber=&ConnectionsTypeId=0&OrderingTypeId=0&OldCultureName=ro-RO

With car you have more flexibility.

You can rent from avis.ro, or any other company you trust.

Driving to Brasov/Sighisoara for example means you will have to pass Valea Prahovei, which is a a nice road but usually there are traffic jams close to Sinaia, especially during the weekends, so be prepared :)
