Are there any buses /taxis from the bus stop to the historic centre???
There was a bus from the train station (most intercity buses also stop there) to the central area. In any case there are taxis.
Thank you - that's really helpful! How much would you expect to pay for taxis?
Well, first of all remember there should be a bus. Maybe once every half hour, let's say (ask at the train station).
Taxis might need a little bit of negotiating. Unfortunately almost all taxis in Romania will try to overcharge foreigners. If they were to use the meter it would probably be something like 20-25 lei (5,5 km x about 3 - 3,5 lei/km).
I suppose they will try to ask for 50 lei or something. I say 30 should be more than acceptable for them and already at 40 lei you are being generous.

True, but if you dig a little further you'll find that info was copied word for word from another post from another website dated 2006 (!!!). So while I'm pretty sure there is still a bus running even nowadays, the timetable and the price may have changed.
