Cost of living

Bucharest vs. other EU capitals

When compared to other European countries Romania is quite an affordable destination. The cost of living in Romania, especially in Bucharest, is around 50% lower compared to other major Western cities like Vienna, London, Berlin, Paris and below the average of other capitals of the CEE region like Prague, Warsaw or Budapest. Over the last decades, Bucharest has grown into a vibrant European capital, a multifaceted city that is still expending and is far off from its maximum potential.
