To answer myself's question after my experience. When I went out of Belgium to Croatia, the airport custom first said I'm EU national's family member, so I don't need a stamp, but after I kept asking, he gave me one :) Croatia did give me a outwards stamp on the train to Belgrade, Belgrade also gave me an entry stamp. But Belgrade refused to give me one when ...

Romania mostly applies the same rules as the Schengen area, as part of their preparation to eventually join it. The rules detailed on the website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs are nearly identical and even the forms or the stamps (technically not a visa) are almost the same as those of Schengen countries (including Estonia, as you can see on your own ...

I myself am a first time visitor in Romania and have spent some time cycling here. I don't know from personal experience, but have been told a lot of bicycles are stolen here and that you should always lock your bike. Bucharest being more dangerous than anywhere else in Romania and with that said, I'd personally avoid it. But your other cities here, I ...

Speaking of Poland, where I live, I'd say there's nothing to worry about regarding safety. No wild tribes living in the forests, no pirates and no horse stealers gangs are there nowadays :) Of course if you leave your expensive bike outside without any lock, it can happen that someone will pay more interest to it and eventually take it, but I'm sure it's ...

Difficult to give an answer with hard data on this question, but I can talk from personal experience of cycling multiple Eastern European countries (not Romania, but Poland, Slovakia, Hungary, Bulgaria, Serbia, Macedonia, Kosovo...) Traffic, especially out of the cities, is in general pleasant. This is mainly because the traffic is less dense in Eastern ...

I only have anecdotal evidence for you as a Croat who frequently travels with a foreign non-euro passport through ex-Yugo countries. On some of the land borders the agents get quite lazy and will literally just look at the outside of the passport and wave you through. These guys you can quite easily ask for stamp if they don't automatically do it (mime it if ...

For Croatia and Romania, it depends on your citizenship and possibly on your country of residence and a few other details but not really on where you are currently travelling from. These two countries are EU member states and they should not stamp EU passports (nor even require EU citizens from travelling with a passport, if they hold an ID card). I guess ...

Yes, you will get stamps. You will only not get stamps when travelling between Schengen countries. Croatia and Romania are not (yet) in the Schengen Area, and Serbia is not even in the EU (though there are non-EU Schengen countries, Serbia is not one of them).

Residence permit holders in the Schengen area (certainly in France) typically don't have or need a visa to enter either their country of residence or the Schengen area as a whole. The common format residence permit is enough for that. You simply present the card (together with your passport) to the border guards or, if needed, to the airline when boarding ...
