If you want that, please submit the form before June 29th, 12:00 Bucharest time!!!

Of course, you have alternatives: a-la-carte menus, small restaurants in the area (but it will take a longer time), buying a sandwich at the grocery nearby or a pizza from the neighbour take-away delivery (see the neighborhood map at the link bellow)…

In the same on-line map (link bellow) you can find some suggestions for restaurants where you can have a pleasant traditional Romanian or international dinner.

The course participants are invited by I.A.E.A. at a Wellcome Cocktail, On Monday evening, July 2nd, 18:30 at the Capital Plaza Hotel. You will have Wine, softdrinks and some finger-food.

How to arrive:

Both hotel/hospital are located at 10/5 min walk from the Victoriei Place (Piata Victoriei), where you can arrive from the Bucharest-Otopeni  “Henri Coanda” Airport by Bus 783. One-way or return tickets can be bought in local currency at the airport (Return ticket  7 Lei = 1.6 Eur) . Cash machines are available in the arrivals hall. Find details here!

You may also use a TAXI. For Taxi you will have to pay cash, in local currency (25-60 Lei = 5-13 Eur). Cash machines are available in the arrivals hall. There are two ways of getting Taxis at the airport:

  • Rapid taxi -just near the exit from the arrival terminal.
  • Taxi by request: you may get a better price by requesting a certain Taxi company, among those listed on the touch-screen self-service devices, just near the exit from the bagage-claim hall. The usual waiting time is 5-10 minutes, and they arrive at the exit from the arrival terminal, on the opposite side of the car lane; just spot your car by the Taxi ID or by the licence number (as printed on your request ticket).

You may also request a pick-up service from the Hotel, in the accomodation form (25 Eur for one transfer, one-way).


Course Program:

Provisional schedule:  Monday 9:30-17:30, Tuesday to Thursday 9:00-17:30, Friday 9:00-12:30.

Find the Agenda HERE.

The courses will take place at the Capital Plaza Hotel (Meeting room “Mihail Kogalniceanu”, first floor).

Practical afternoons (Tuesday to Thursday) will take place at the “Gr. Alexandrescu” Hospital.


Romanian currency: Romanian New Leu (RON). 1 Euro≈5 Lei. All payments in Romania are made in local currency! International cards (VISA, MasterCard, Maestro) are accepted in hotels, big restaurants, supermarkets, department stores (as posted at the entrance door). You may find exchange offices and cash machines (ATM) at the airport and a bank nearby the hotel, right side after going out from the hotel (ING Bank; cash machine indoors, access by card 24/24, 7/7). Take usual precautions when using cash machines in stores or in the street (always prefer the ones located at banks, because they are under continuous surveillance). Use exchange offices in banks; we do not recommend using small exchange offices on street-side and never accept exchange at persons, irrespective of the story they tell!


General security/safety precautions are the same as in other EU big cities.

Avoid walking alone by night in unlighted or lonely areas! Be careful with your belongings and pockets in crowded areas and buses! Prefer the subway for public transportation. You may use taxis (you can ask the hotel reception, restaurants’ staff, etc. to order a Taxi for you). Uber system is also available.

The nearby Victoriei square lies in front of thr Government building, so it is a frequent place for public meetings (mainly anti-government demonstrations). These are generally peacefull and civilized. Anyhow, if there are big crowds or you notice nervous groups, it is better to keep a certain distance and try to shy away from the square.
