just wondering the best (or cheapest!)way to get from belrade to oradea in the next couple of days, I can't seem to find much info on the internet (probably doesn't help that the hostel computer keeps crashing!)so any help would be really appreciated
Best way is bus or train from Belgrade via Temisoara & Arad to Oradea.
You will need to change bus/train at Temisoara.
For buses info from Belgrade chek www.bas.rs
For info on trains call Belgrade international enqury desk:+381 11 360.28.99
or chek here for info on belgrade-temisoata train:
It is a long ride some 340km and with car takes best part of 6 hrs.
Can not tell you about bus, as is lower & its stops at Temisoara & Arad. but I will add another hour on the top of it at least.
From Temisoara you will need to make arrangmats to get to Oradea.
Hope this was helpfull.
As mentioned above, the best way to do this is to go from Belgrade to Timisoara and then catch another train or bus to Oradea.
The big problem is that there isn't much public transport between Belgrade and Timisoara, just one train (it leaves from Belgrade at 3.55PM and gets to Timisoara around 9PM, which is too late for any connections to Oradea; a second class ticket costs 10-15 euros) and one minibus ( check
geatours.co.yu/eng/temisvar.... ; it costs 25 euros).
The rest of the trip (from Timisoara to Oradea) is easy, there are 7-8 trains and numerous buses between these cities daily; the trip takes 3 - 4 1/2 hours and it costs under 10 euros.
