    The InterNations events in Bucharest are really great. The members attending, both expats and locals, are very interesting to talk to.

Living in Arad

A beautiful city of just over 150,000 people, Arad is sometimes called Little Vienna for its rich, flamboyant architecture. Situated next to the river Mureș since the 11th century, it has changed hands many times over the course of a dramatic history. Today, the Fortified Town of Arad is an impressive remnant of this tumultuous past and one of the most impressive star-shaped Transylvanian fortresses. The city has more than just a military past, though. The Ioan Slavici Classical Theater is a beautiful example of European architecture and, what’s more, the city boasts an impressive cultural calendar. It's awash with galleries, as well as having theatres, two universities and a philharmonic orchestra. There is even a house with seventeen cannon balls built into its walls. And for expatriates new to Europe, living in Arad is a great chance and well-connected vantage point from which to explore the beautiful continent.

Moving to Arad

Expats who are moving to Arad have little to worry about. The city is inviting, the food is good and Arad's dynamic economy – it's one of the most prosperous cities in Romania – means people are used to having expatriates around. There is plenty to glean from the InterNations website as well. Especially for expatriates from outside Europe, the Expat Magazine is a brilliant one-stop shop for articles on insurance, finance, moving and expatriation – all of which will make settling into Arad that bit easier. As well as plenty of insightful content, it's often equally worthwhile having a look at the experiences of other InterNations members, who have relocated to similar places and usually have plenty of tips and insider secrets to share. Overall, though, moving to Arad shouldn't be a stressful experience. InterNations gives you access to all the experience and advice you need for a smooth and easy arrival – but you'll probably be out exploring within half an hour of getting there anyway.

Working in Arad

Expats working in Arad have plenty to smile about. The climate is pleasantly continental, with mild winters and warm, long summers. Romanian cuisine is another great surprise, heavily influenced by a period of Ottoman rule as well as by some of the most popular dishes from surrounding states. InterNations can offer plenty of tips on how to set about discovering a city's food culture, but many expats find they'd like to get in touch with similar global minds themselves. This is something InterNations members can easily do over discussion threads and forums, or by using private communications through InterNations. Members often set up get-togethers in this way and even if you don't find a thriving international community waiting for you, in a dynamic city like Arad it won't be long until you've found other expats to create one with.

    I have met most of my friends in Bucharest through InterNations. I never thought I would join an online community. Glad that I changed my mind.
