Romania is generally a safe place to live and study. The 2015 Numbeo Safety Index, indicates 80 points for Cluj-Napoca city, almost 80 points for Timisoara and nearly 70 for Bucharest out of 100 points, as seen below.
Although it is a safe country, it is still important to look after yourself and be aware of the risks that exist - and ways to minimise them. This is particularly important for when you first arrive and are adjusting to your new way of life.
Please be informed that the Romanian police force keeps a visual presence on city streets, especially in busy areas.
In case of Emergency please call 112 for Police, Ambulance or Fire Services.
