Giurgiu is located on the mud flats and marshes of the Danube River, across the bay from Rousse, Bulgaria. A large island, Smarda, shelters the port.
Bucharest, the capital of Romania, is located 39 mi/63 km from the town. The fastest way to travel to Bucharest is to take a bus, which takes slightly over an hour. At least one bus leaves Giurgiu per hour. There are also direct trains to and from Bucharest, but the trip lasts at least two-and-a-half hours.
