Erasmus Experience in Bucharest, Romania by Marta

Would you recommend the city and the university of Bucharest to other students?

Of course.


What is the food like there?

Romanian food is incredible.

Was it difficult to find accommodation in Bucharest?

No, because I stayed in the residence which I applied for before I got here. I have to say that the residences aren't generally in great condition, so the majority of students end up renting a flat.

How much does it cost to live in Bucharest?

Bucharest, in general, is quite a lot less expensive than Spain or at least Barcelona.


Is the language easy to get to grips with? Are there language courses available at the university?

In the beginning, the language was difficult, but then I picked up the knack, I went on a Romanian course for 5 hours a week, which I got for free with my Erasmus grant.

What's the easiest or most economical way to travel to Bucharest from your home city?

Wizz Air or Blue Air.


Where would you recommend for a night out in Bucharest?

All of the Lipscani area: Kulturhaus Bukarest, Club A, El comandante, etc. As well as Silver Church. There are loads of places around there. Then there are other kinds of clubs that are totally different, which you have to see, like Bamboo or Belaggio.

And to eat in Bucharest? What are some of your favourite places to go?

I think that the best place is Caru cu Bere, although you can't go every day, because Bucharest isn't exactly inexpensive, but for people coming from Spain, I think that you can afford it. They serve the best pizzas in the world at the bar in the Grozavesti residence (Filos Pub)!

What good cultural sites are there to visit?

You shouldn't miss out on seeing the city itself, I think that the best thing is to get lost in the streets. Although, you have to visit the Parliament.


Do you have any advice for students coming to Bucharest in the future?

Enjoy the experience as much as you can, make the most of it to travel a lot throughout Romania and around Eastern Europe in general. It's also not hard to get to know people from there and take advantage of the language course.
