Location & Travel
The Location for TC 2019 is a magical hideout in the Persani mountains with a nice waterway/creek running through.
The access road is very good and easy for any vehicle, it has only 2 km of dirt road.
The exact location, GPS, closest train & bus station as well as free shuttle service info will be kept a secret until the last minute and will be sent together with the Survival Guide as usual via Email to all Ticket Holders 7 days before the event.
Please check your mailbox when you start packing (also spam/junk folder) and read carefully the arrival and survival guide. Print it and take it with you as it will be useful.
If you hold a ticket you will receive a newsletter with the Survival Guide that holds all information needed on how to prepare your backpack and how to find and reach us.
Travel to Romania
We recommend you to plan your travel to Romania as soon as possible especially if you come via airplane in order to benefit of cheaper priced air tickets.
Check available flights to Airports like Sibiu (SBZ) or Targu-Mures (TGM) (closest to the location), but also Bucharest (OTP), Cluj-Napoca (CLJ) or Timisoara (TSR) are ok and might be cheaper but you have a longer distance to cover inside Romania to reach the festival location.
However that shouldn't be a problem as it can be combined with visiting some great places along the way. Please choose the most convenient flight for yourself and feel free to ask us in our Facebook group about places worth visiting along your travel route.
Once in Romania or Transylvania you can easily reach our shuttle & meeting points by Bus, Train, or Car. Please use our Transylvania Calling Group on Facebook to let us know when you arrive as that can help with finding a suiting ride-share, place to stay etc. and if needed we can also hire and send a bus to pick up bigger groups.
If you plan to come and explore Romania before the festival and before we send the Survival Guide please call or write us as we can help you planning and designing your trip. Info ( a t ) transylvaniacalling.com / +40752471829 (sms if no signal and we call ya back)
!!! Do not take taxi from the airports or central train stations at any case! It is too far and you risk to get ripped off! Feel free to call and ask us for advice at any time!
When you hitchhike, leave a small tip, like 5 or 10 LEI, depending on the distance, or tell the driver before you get in that you have no money, otherwise you might have surprises.
