How to get in Padurea Craiului ecotourism destination?

Located in the north-western part of the Apuseni Mountains, Pădurea Craiului Mountains cover a large part of Bihor county and they are relatively close to Oradea, Cluj-Napoca, and Beiuş. The distance from the Hungarian border is also less than one hundred kilometers.
Pădurea Craiului Mountains are easily accessible to tourists, who can reach them by plane – flying to Cluj-Napoca or Oradea, by car – following E60 that connects Oradea with Cluj-Napoca or DN76 from Oradea to Beiuş. The Oradea-Bucharest railroad crosses the northern limit of Pădurea Craiului in the area of Bratca – Şuncuiuş-Vadu Crişului. There is also another possible railroad connection through the south, but only as far as the town of Beiuş. This long way around is recommended mostly to those passionate by railroad travels, as the train takes a long time on this route.
