Banat can be reached by plane from any corner of Europe, on the TraianVuia” International Airport in Timişoara, within maximum 3 hours. (Annex 1). Mountainous Banat has a railway and road infrastructure that allows you to quickly reach by car any corner of the country by crossing the European road E70 (DN 6) from north to south.
On all Banat routes, the duration of a car journey has to be estimated in advance, knowing that usually a mile can be covered in a minute.
