Travel Forums Europe From Bucharest to Warsaw by car, through Slovakia

Hi everybody!

We are planning our trip, and we have been told that you can go by car from Bucharest through Kisuce to Warsaw.
The approximate time supposed to be 24 hours, almost without stopping. I would like to know about crossing the borders - is this a quick procedure? And if somebody could tell me whether the 24 hours include time for crossing the borders to Slovakia and Poland.

Thank you again,

To get this straight; the following will be your route?

  • Bucurest - E60 to Hungarian border
  • Cross into Hungary at Oradea / Ártánd
  • E60 - national highway 47 (to Debrecen)
  • E71 to Slovakian border
  • Cross into Slovakia at Tomyosnémeti
  • E71
  • E71 - E50 (at Kosice) - E371 (at Presov)
  • Cross into Poland at Vysný Komárnik
  • E371 to Warsaw

I am not speaking from personal experience, but I very much doubt that you can do this in 24 hours. We're talking one of the main north-south corridors of Eastern Europe here, one that has massive traffic. Even now that all countries involved are part of the EU, I doubt whether you could cross either border in less than 2-3 hours. Depending on your country of residence / nationality / appearance / mood of customs and immigration officials / time of crossing / weather / musical preference, it could easily be more.
