What do expats in Romania appreciate most about the local culture?

"Romania has come a long way and at least from what I seen is very "westernized"! Many speak at least two languages unless you deal with the less educated or the country folks," added another person living in Oradea.

"1. The positive attitude of the children. 2. Most people have strong family ties. 3. Most people are more than simple hospitality.....families are gracious and welcoming. 4. People do the impossible....even if it takes years," explained one expat living in Cluj Napoca.
