What are the pros and cons of living in Romania?

Expats, digital nomads and retirees living in Romania responded:

"Expats and digital nomads often appreciate the affordability of living in Romania, as well as the country's rich cultural heritage and stunning natural landscapes. They also enjoy the friendly locals and the vibrant nightlife in the cities. On the other hand, some expats and digital nomads may find the bureaucracy and paperwork involved in settling in Romania to be a bit overwhelming. Additionally, the language barrier can be a challenge for those who don't speak Romanian," said one in Romania.
