Clothes recommended for September in Romania

Cloths recommended for September in Romania – T shirt, it is still very much summer weather clothes and a light weight waterproof as it does still occasionally rain up in the mountains. But it still never gets cold in September in the day unless your sleeping out right on the top of Gutia Mountain or your very unlucky, but a fleece or light jacket is a good idea like the picture above taken in the late afternoon in September 2010.
