Accessing the city of Sacueni by bicycle is as easy as exploring any other settlement, with a highroad near by. There are 2 main routes for urban traffic. The first of these is D19, which connects the city of Létavértes in Hungary and Sacueni by a common border crossing. Coming on the straight road from Hungary, you will see a car mechanic’s workshop, as well as an emergency service, a train station for faster travel, and a shade to take a rest in the Millennium Park of Sacueni. The rest area is close to everything you need: pharmacy, medical office, restaurant, shops, police. It is known that the languages spoken in the city are Hungarian and Romanian, if anyone wants to communicate in English the best is to try their luck with the youths in the locality. In need of any of the services from above , it is worth staying more in the little town of Sacueni, because there is a high possibility not to find similar services in the neighbouring rural areas. However, if the tourist who arrived on two wheels want to see some local attractions, it is worthwhile to visit the Stubenberg Palace which today works as an orphanage, the Catholic church next to the castle, the cellars on the street known as “saltyway” and the thermal bath.
And the small village belonging to the city of Sacueni, Cadea, located to a short distance from the city, has also touristical attractions. And another significant road of Sacueni is the European road E671, which crosses the city towards Oradea. The first touristic attraction is the mansion of the family of the count Pongrácz which today is used as a home for people with psychological disabilities. Behind you may find the park of the family, looking forward you will see the technological school and next the crypt of count’s family on top of a small hill. Along the highway in Cadea we can see two small shops and if we go after them we are getting back on the E 671 road which if we follow to south it bring us to Oradea and to north we can go to Satu Mare.
Route Cadea – Sannicloau de Munte
If the cyclist wants a beautiful landscape or a hot thermal bath he will find everything in Sannicolau de Munte! Although the city is accessible from Sacueni on a shorter road, through the forest, there is also the European road from Cadea directly to the thermal bath of Sannicolau de Munte where we can also get accommodation and meals for a pretty reasonable price. Reaching one end of the village Cadea, the tortuous road crosses agricultural fields, first it goes up and then ends with a slope of almost one kilometer.
The village consists of several streets, next to the main street, we find small shops and a beautifully renovated reformed church. Remaining on the same road we can ask for help in repairs, medical care and other needs. Leaving the main road, you can reach the road with cellars or a road in woods accessible with two wheels, and we can also reach hilltop from where we can see the whole village.
Road Sacueni-Sannicolau de Munte-Saniob
A small religious village, with its neat streets and historical accents, hidden in a valley. The name is related to the right hand of the first Hungarian king, St. Stephen, which has been hidden here for many years. The religiosity of the settlement is highlighted by the presence of two churches of different religions, in the immediate vicinity of each other, as well as their well-kept gardens.
But how do we get here? If Sacueni is our starting point then it will be easy. From the roundabout in the center of the city, follow the national road 19B, cycling up on a hill until the end of the city, where you can see a gas station which indicates the street taking us to Sannicolau de Munte following the forests and arable lands, we are entering the village after a mazy road and a slope. Then we are entering Saniob by taking the sharp curve to the left. If we want to see some curiosities we should follow a rocky path to the right , which take us to the one thousand year old tree, which we can recognize by a plaque.
Returning to thehighway, we can already see where Saniob is located. The first stopping point can be a playground with a neighbouring shop and memorial park. The Reformed Church and the Catholic Church are worth seeing as well.
Letavértes – Sacueni Route
Letavertes is the city on the other part of the border. The two small towns connect with a highroad, 40-50 minutes to one another. Even if GoogleMaps says you may not be able to travel by bike, there is a bicycle road for those who want to go on two wheels. On the Romanian side of the border, after 8oo meters, the passengers can go to the right to Diosig. We advise wine lovers to visit the village.
Going straight, but after 7 km, we reach the edge of Sacueni, where is a bridge, near the sign with the name of the settlement we can see a ditch with shallow water, called river Ier. Following the route we arrive in the center of Sacueni where we can find all the necessary services that can provide a solution to the needs of the traveler. It is worth spending more time here, as most and the best attractions and services can be found here within a radius of 15 kilometers.
