Outside Hotel Victoria next to Libscania Street you will find some taxis. We just can warn you: out of four times we used taxis in Bucarest three tricked us ! The worst has been the taxi driver in front of Victoria Hotel coming from Libsania Street. He charged us 231 Lei after driving us to a place which has been closed ! After some days in Bucarest we knew the streets and could see that the driver choose extremely long ways to make money. Also he trimmed the taxi-meter to make big stepps ! The same distance in the afternoon was charged for 12 Lei by a serious driver !!! Though we were two men it seemed we had no choise as the other taxi-drivers and one police-mann seemed to be under one carpet.
We want to warn all visitors of Bucarest to only order a taxi in the hotel and not just walk into one on a waiting-place !!
This experience has been one more proove of the MAFIA-structures in the former kommunist countries.
The serious conuntries and the honest people pay the bill for this gangsters !
