Having emerged from communist austerity in the late 1980s, Romania has stepped confidently into the international community in recent years, overcoming a legacy of poverty and repression to become a growing gateway for business and tourism. With a diverse landscape encompassing rolling hills and imposing mountains, dense forests and rustic villages, Gothic castles and thriving modern cities, there's something for everybody in this historical nation. Many expats move to Romania to take advantage of a growing industrial sector and a relatively low cost of living compared to much of Europe. Job roles include construction and engineering, IT and communications and software development — particularly centralized within the capital city of Bucharest. Overall, this country may still be somewhat off the beaten track compared to the great Western superpowers, but with a unique personality, friendly and welcoming locals, and plentiful business opportunities, the rewards of building a life in Romania are plentiful.
