Shopping in Romania

 

Shopping in Romania

To avoid wasting money on an item that you will throw away in a few months, get some inspiration from a list of authentic Romanian items that you can buy for yourself. Currency exchange is carried out only by Banks so it is necessary to find the nearest branch. The working schedule of stores is usually standard; from 9 am to 6 pm. Romanians however take a lunch break from 12 noon to 3 pm. The cost of living is pretty cheap in general. For basic goods, Romania has some of the lowest prices in the EU, check out the following,
