What do I need to know before moving to Bucharest?

Answer this Question

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Bucharest, they said...

"Prior to moving to Bucharest, it is important to be aware of the people, climate, culture, and economy of the city. Bucharest is a multicultural city with a diverse population, including Romanians, Hungarians, Roma, and more. The climate is a temperate continental climate with cold winters and hot summers. Bucharest is a vibrant city with a culture that is heavily influenced by its historical ties to the Western world. The economy of Bucharest is stable with a low unemployment rate. It is also important to acquire information about the cost of living, the transportation system, and the housing market in the city. Additionally, making sure to acquire the proper visas or permits for residence is also essential before moving to Bucharest," remarked another expat who made the move to Bucharest, Romania.

"I enjoy the Obor area, because it has all I need, including the biggest grocery market in the city, but has fair prices for the accommodation. I would suggest searching for a place both next to metro stations and parks. Because public transport is doomed to be trappet in rush hour trafic and parks, such as Herastrau, grant an escape from the busy streets, especially for those who come from smaller cities. The far North of the city, above Herastrau park, has the richest area with new apartments. The rest of the city is filled with communistic buildings with simple flats," explained one expat living in Bucharest, Romania.
