Not even when you ask nicely. Do the tolls work? There are obstacles or no stalls. A 2 month sticker costs 26.80, and a 10 day decal 9.20.

Cosmin I met in Bucharest, after previously wrote in our editorial office, in a desperate attempt to find support in his struggle with the Austrian authorities. Dentist by profession, Cosmin asked us to protect his identity, deoarce, he said, this scandal would affect the image. "I do not know where to get the chance. He messed this ugly experience of living in Austria. Let me tell you how it happened. " 37-year Doctor sighs of all the reins, then unleashes trouble:"We're 15 years skiing in Austria. We love this sport. So, earlier this year through January, we made reservations at Hotel Montanara in Iscghl. I was wrong that I considered offers travel agencies. I chose us on the Internet where to go. It is a four-star establishment seemed seriously, we've been worried. For us the preferred period - 3 to 10 January - accommodation costs 450 euros per night. I paid through December, an advance of 1,000 euros and then we went on the road ".

Cosmin draw breath again: "I have arrived at their destination on January 3, 21.30. It was very busy highway ... Started the first fool. The only employee who was waiting for us, eager to go home, told us that parking costs 20 euros per night. He led us to the room, then practically ran it, leaving empty reception.Book a two-bedroom apartment and two bathrooms, because, apart from wife and me, we accompanied our baby three and a half years, plus an aunt. As I entered the apartment, he struck a powerful stench. It smelled like fried cheese mixed with onions. Horrible! But that proved to be the biggest problem. Not! The room was incredibly cold, ice walls were. "

"That night, my wife, who was pregnant with her second child, cooled. So baby three and a half years. Angry, the next day I asked the other rooms and although they were fully booked, we were given. A wife came employer and airy with us and sent us to go elsewhere if we do not like. How it was as cold as the first night and could just as bad, I decided to find another hotel. It was mockery from Montanara! Finally, we found other accommodation, then I came back to ask for money in advance gap. Well, I stayed one night, I told them to stop us 450 euros, but give us the remaining 550 euros from 1,000 down payment. "

The doctor comes on instantly: "What do you think happened? Not only because they refused to give us 550 euros, but we were asked to pay money on all eight nights, ie 3,600 euros.Aberrant! Then we decided to call the police to mediate this situation astounding. We were convinced that we will get justice. A naive! They're cops - who spoke more German than inEnglish - and gave us that if we do not pay the full amount, we give the hands of judges. I was Sider. I also went to the local tourist office, who simply refused to register the complaint. I understand that there was Montanara hotel owner and owner of all that mean Iscghl cable plant. Nobody wanted to put bad with him some bitter Romanian ".

Humiliated already for doctors in Bucharest just begun ordeal: "I paid the full amount in Montanara and left.Immediately, I called the Romanian Consulate in Austria, to ask for help. I spoke with Mr. Florin Râmniceanu who advised us to go to the police chief of Iscghl. He advised stupid! We should recommend to hire a lawyer to recover our money to bring civil. I learned this later. Well, we went to the police chief. They have welcomed all who came to Montanara watchdogs, plus a femeiepoliţist. They were aggressive, we were constantly harassed and only the second day we managed to get to their superior. Which, of course, had only the basics of English. I requested an interpreter as required by EU legislation, but have received nothing. "

The 10 best Austrian ski resorts
Sep 20, 2018 ... Apart from being the capital of the TirolInnsbruck is a ski resort in its own right – and one with considerable charm and fine restaurants.

Humiliated, fleeced and prosecuted

Cosmin focus for a few seconds, then erupts again: "Although I have ex-cated clear that we want to make a complaint, just get our money, the police chief sent us later in German, a official summons in saying that we must present the police department. Well, I found out later what it was, we do not know German. So we've shown anywhere. We all had enough and I wanted to relax, to go skiing, that's why I just leave. "

 The family returned to Romania without money back and, when almost forgotten the humiliation of loss and eight months later, he received a subpoena from the letters rogatory.They went to the police to find out what it is about, and explanations Romanian officials have left open-mouthed: their names there is a criminal case in the Court of Innsbruck, where they were accused of libel and slander against police officers Iscghl. In Austria, such acts shall be punished with imprisonment from 2 to 5 years!

"It was a shocking news. I mean, after we have been fleeced big way, riskier to do and jail! ", Claiming, outraged, Cosmin. I ask him if he took cursed or if somehow the palms on the Austrian police and not delay the answer: "nothing of the kind! We are civilized, educated ... I lectured in the country and Geneva, Switzerland. Work broken commute. The wife is dermatologist are serious people. E mockery, sir! We ate so much this story ... Oh, God! ".

Cosmin's indignation seems justified, his voice takes on a cold tone: "We have made a folder.We have not given any written statement, the wife did not even legitimized it ... we hold certificates stating that we only linguistic basics of the English language, so I needed a translator to talk with police in Iscghl. We have not received, we have broken a law. Or Romanians are European citizens just when it comes to taxes? ".

Cosmin and Cristina had to stick deep into his pocket to defend: "We hired a lawyer in the country and one in Austria. No play. We prosecuted, we risk doing jail, pay fines, criminal careers crumble to us ... I am disappointed by the reaction of Romanian officials. More precisely, their lack of response. Consulate not helped us, the Foreign Ministry, too. I also notified the Embassy of Romania, hope to support us. I have a strange feeling, as if we are orphans, poor left unfinished Romanian .. ".

Cry for help in a letter to Ambassador

In an attempt to find justice, Cosmin N. sent a formal letter of Mazuru Romanian Ambassador to Austria. Still awaiting a reply.

"His Excellency Ambassador Mazuru, Dear Sir, I submitted on 09/29/2015 at the registry of Foreign Ministry statement no. 11501 / 29.09.2015.

You will find attached memo and letter lodged at the Public Relations Department of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Hoping that our approach respects the legal framework, please help us to establish truth and rights and freedoms we enjoy as European citizens.

Embassy knows nothing but promises help

Contacted by the newspaper, the Romanian Embassy in Austria, the voice Secretary Adrian Adam, told us the following: "Personally, I do not know the subject, but I will be interested.You see - there are hundreds and thousands of processes, people arrested in Austria with serious problems - it's hard to know all the details. Especially that this case is a private business. Okay, we need to help everybody ... There were cases related to all of Iscghl, the Romanians have booked accommodation in advance and, when they reached the spot, they found themselves where they did not stand . They were moving, walk ...
