Reghin Travel Guide, Romania
Reghin Travel guide -Getting There
The first mention of the city dates back to1228, although many think the settlement is much older due its strategic position. It offers a generous view of Mures River valley and its point of confluence with Gurghiu River.
The valleys of these two rivers also represent two old ways of getting to the city, crowded both in the past and nowadays. Târgu Mureş-Reghin-Deda-Topliţa is a railway route following Mures, but there is also a European road E15 enabling people to get there. National and county roads such as DN16 Reghin-Cluj-Napoca, Reghin-Lăpuşna and Reghin-Sovata are pretty good, facilitating travelling through a place shadowed by forests and water mills. Buses are probably the best choice to get to the city. They are direct and fast (for the train you might need connections). It is 386 kilometers away from the capital Bucharest and it is 90 miles away from Baia Mare.
Reghin Travel guide -Not to Miss
Two churches are considered by many Reghin travel guides to be the symbol of the city: the wooden orthodox church named St. Nicholas and the Evangelic Lutheran Church. Getting around will not be very difficult, as the population comprises Romanians, Hungarians and Germans, so many languages are spoken. It is better to get there in summer days, as a walk through the Round Forest will keep you cool and in July the city has a large celebration called the Days of Reghin. It is a chance to hear live music, from folklore pieces to rock. Those willing to visit Reghin and the entire Mures County, may visit www.muresinfo.ro, a site with updated information about events. As souvenirs, the local ceramics, stained glass or traditional costumes are the best choices.
Reghin used to be the town of violins, but unfortunately the craft is hardly practiced. Adventure seekers will be delighted to find out that Enduromania (an event for bikers) is one of the events held in this city.
Reghin Travel guide - Where to Stay
Many two or three stars (or daisies for motels) hotels are available. They are generally clean, with a refined architecture, having rooms with their private bathrooms. Some are not exactly central or they are to be found on the outskirts of Reghin. Round Forest Marion Hotel for instance is placed in an oak reservation, offering a medieval atmosphere. Valley of the Kings is an ideal spot to stay or just to eat for the sake of the landscape. Central Hotel is for those willing to stay in the heart of the town, Adra Lodge or Blanca Hostel is recommended for those seeking silence. In the largest square of the city, where the Thursday market used to occur, there is another welcoming hotel named Iris.
