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

Living in Sibiu

Sibiu is an idyllic city in the heart of Romania’s infamous Transylvania region. The area gained notoriety in the early 20th century after the publication of Bram Stoker’s Dracula, which told the story of a vampire moving from Transylvania to England. Expats living in Sibiu will be well out of harm’s way, but you can soak up the vampire mythology at Dracula’s castle, known as Bran Castle only 100 miles away. Sibiu itself is like something out of a book. It has won accolades for its picturesque architecture and scenery, and has been named "The European Capital of Culture" and “Europe’s 8th most idyllic place to live”. The old town has an unrivaled charm, full of ornate buildings constructed by the German settlers and merchants who came to Sibiu in the late Middle Ages, and the natural beauty of the surrounding Fagaras, Cibin and Lotrului mountains is perfect for nature-loving expatriates in Sibiu. To learn more about Sibiu’s history, visit the Brukenthal Museum, said by many to be one of the best museums in Romania.

Moving to Sibiu

Although Sibiu is a city, it is somewhat off the beaten track. It is around 250 miles north of Romania’s capital city Bucharest and the Sibiu International Airport serves a limited number of European cities. But this is all part of the adventure of moving to Sibiu. Expats in Sibiu will quickly realize that it is the ideal place for nature lovers and history buffs who want the convenience of city living. Romanian is the national language of Romania, and it is spoken almost exclusively in Sibiu. This can be a difficult language to master, so take as many classes as possible before you relocate to Sibiu, and make sure you can read and understand emergency instructions such as road signs and safety warnings. For tips on picking up Romanian, or any other language, speak to other expatriates in the InterNations community through our discussion groups, forums and private communication system.

Working in Sibiu

Sibiu’s economy has thrived in recent years, as scores of foreign investors have rushed to relocate their business in and around the city. A recently completed industrial park suggests that this growth will continue for some time. Sibiu is a manufacturing hub, specializing in car parts, machine and electrical components as well as textiles, and expatriates are attracted from across Europe to work in this vibrant city. Romania has been a member of the European Union since 2007, so any expatriate hailing from another EU country has the right to work there automatically. If you are thinking about working in Sibiu, but aren’t sure if Romanian life is for you, get in touch with veteran expats through InterNations, the largest online expat community around the globe.

    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.
