Other things that are important, is transport and visa requirements (this year Alex was refused a visa, before it has been Dmitry Yemanov). Taking a quick look at available flights from Oslo to Tirgu Mures (TGM) gave ridiculous prices - from 1800 euro using three flights and a lot of time! A direct flight to Budapest costs less than 300 euro, so I hope this pricing is due to poor algorithms on the internet site I tried, I cannot imagine that people pay 1500 euro for a return ticket Budapest - Tirgu Mures.

If you check the flight from Budapest to Tirgu-Mures
you will see that it cost ~64 euros or less
Also there is another airport at 100Km in Cluj-Napoca that is what i
used to reach to Bergamo
and i had to pay under 100 euro to get from Cluj to Bergamo (24 euro exactly)

Also we have four stars hotels like Concordia and others and very good
and large conference rooms
but the best in my opinion is to stay to the Pension
So you can choose from dirty cheap to the very expensive

Also the beer price is something under 1 euro for an dark traditional one
