After 12 hours in the car Sunday, including 4 hours at the boarder to Romania, Jonas and I ended up staying in what Lonely Planet refers to as ‘arguably the ugliest town in Romania’; Satu Mare. Although perhaps not the most pitoresque place, I thought the town quite interesting. Basically the entire town is made up of communist buildings, which reflects both in city planning and in architecture. A perfect city according to communist ideals! People were friendly and relaxed – i.e. a cool place!
