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

"Romania is a beautiful country with a rich culture and history. It is important to research the local customs and laws before moving to Romania. Expats should also be aware of the language barrier, as Romanian is the official language. It is also important to familiarize yourself with the local currency, the Romanian Leu, and to open a local bank account. Additionally, expats should be aware of the cost of living in Romania, which is generally lower than in other European countries. Finally, expats should make sure to obtain the necessary visas and permits before moving to Romania," remarked another expat in 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," said a member in Bucharest, Romania.
