The following table shows the estimated cost of living (rent + living costs) in the 15 largest cities in Romania in terms of population size:

Cluj-Napoca600-900

Oradea400-750
Bacau400-750
Pitesti400-700
Arad400-700
Braila400-650

You should be able to get a pretty good idea of how much money you need to live in Romania from the table above.As can be seen, the cheapest cities in Romania are Pitesti, Braila, and Arad. With careful budgeting, residents of these cities may even be able to live on less than 500 Euros per month.

However, given that even the more expensive cities like Bucharest, Cluj-Napoca, and Timișoara are still very affordable by almost any European standard, the majority of remote workers from other countries still prefer the larger cities because they offer more things to do, have a larger international community, and are easier for a foreigner to adjust to.

If you’re a digital nomad who is only planning a short trip to Romania for a few weeks or months, the bigger cities will likely have more Airbnb options for you.However, you will almost certainly have to budget slightly more than the figures above because you will almost certainly have to pay more for lodging for a shorter stay than you would for a tenancy with a longer duration.

It’s also important to note that the Romanian leu is the country’s currency.As of this writing (January 2022), 1 Euro is approximately 5 Leu, 1 USD is approximately 4.5 Leu, and 1 Pound is approximately 6 Leu.You can carry a balance in Romanian Leu and use their app to pay for things in the country’s currency, so you should think about using the digital bank Revolut for your banking needs in Romania.
