Shopping, Nature, and Finance in Bucharest
In recent years, a focus on culture has seen Bucharest make a concerted effort to once again live up to the nickname of "Little Paris". Ornate churches, neo-classical architecture, trendy bars, and upscale restaurants mix with the natural beauty of botanical gardens and parks to provide a beautiful backdrop to life in the EU's 6th largest city (by population).
The construction and retail industries have grown into major sources of employment with the country experiencing a retail boom in the form of shopping malls and international supermarkets. However, as the home of Romania's stock exchange, finance and business play a major role in the city's economy, too. Expats are likely to find employment in IT, communications, finance, engineering, and construction. There are also international schools in Bucharest that may present another option for educators.
For busy shopping centers, expats have a choice of large shopping malls, including Bucharest Mall and Plaza Romania. Public transport is extensive with the metro system providing convenient travel around the city as well as buses, trams, and taxis. In the evening, restaurants, jazz clubs, and concert halls await to entertain night owls, and during day make the most of summer by exploring the many beautiful lakes, gardens, and parks around the city.
