Turda is a city in Romania, situated on the Aries River. In 1944 the Battle of Turda between Germans and Hungarians VS Soviet and Romanian forces was the largest fought in Transylvania during the war.
It is reasonably easy to hitchhike out of Turda north towards Cluj-Napoca on the E81. The best spot seems to be an area in the north of the city, just between the 'Rompetrol' and 'Mol' petrol stations. A good place for passing traffic to pull over, and cars exiting the Rompetrol can be approached quite easily.
