The Bucharest Metro is insane. First of all because there aren't two way stairs yet. So, when you're there, every time the metro stops way too many people get on, it's especially impressive during the metro's peak hours. Then it is very difficult to understand because there are not many maps or directions. For example the first time I asked my destination, I was sent to walk around the circle, but the longest side. I, perhaps half an hour later! The metro is a very cheap means of transport, travel card costs 8 10 read, ie about 2 euros. Probably that is why it is in such bad condition. I preferred the buses and trams of the city, but the hours of heavy traffic or to go near Victoriei or Unirii Square, faster go underground. It is safe, there is not much crime.
