ELECTRICITY

Electricity supply in Romania is 220 Volts (50 Hz) and wall outlets conform to the European Standard (CEE 7/4) with two pin plugs. The standard two-pin Euro plug (CEE 7/16) can be connected to these outlets.

SHOPPING

Folk crafts, such as embroidered clothing and linen, painted or beaded eggs, carpets, pottery, woodcarvings and icons, make interesting gifts and souvenirs. Romanian peasants do magnificent embroidery on cotton, wool and leather. Look for blouses, skirts, exotic coats, rugs, tablecloths and lacework. Icons, new and old, painted on glass or wood are outstanding.

INSURANCE

The organizer cannot accept responsibility for accidents that might occur. Delegates are encouraged to purchase travel insurance before leaving their home country. Insurance plans typically cover accidental loss of belongings, medical costs in case of injury or illness, and other possible risks of international travel.
