Removals to Romania| Shipping to Romania | Moving to Europe

Removals to Romania have increased greatly in recent years, especially since 2007 when Romania, once a part of the communist bloc, joined the EU. Dolphin Movers have been carrying out regular shipping to Romania for many years and we can generally be found there at least twice a week helping people who are moving house to Romania or back to the UK.

Romania now attracts many people from the UK as it has all the amenities and facilities of a modern country (particularly the capital Bucharest) but with a much lower cost of living, lower property prices, and so on. But we expect the demand for removals to Romania to increase again at the end of 2013 when UK and Romania people become eligible for complete freedom of movement to live and work in either country.

Our shipping to Romania service includes moving your belongings by road across Europe to the Romanian destination of your choice and can include packing and storage (we offer up to 4 weeks free storage in the UK prior to your removals date), as well as unpacking at your destination.

About Romania

Geography and Demographics
The capital city of Romania is Bucharest. Other major cities include Cluj-Napoca, Timisoara, Lasi, Constanta, Craiova, Galati, Brasov, Ploiesti, Oradea and Braila. There are two airports in Bucharest: Baneasa and Otopeni, with flights between London and Bucharest taking just over three hours.

Airports can also be found in Arad, Bacau, Baia Mare, Caransebes, Cluj-Napoca, Constanta, Craiova, Iasi, Oradea, Satu Mare, Sibiu, Suceava, Targu Mures, Timisoara and Tulcea. Ports on the Black Sea are Constanta, Mangalia, Midia and Sulina. There are also a number of ports on the Danube-Black Sea Canal and on the Danube River. Romania is surrounded by Hungary, Serbia, Ukraine , Moldova and Bulgaria and has a population of well over 21 million.

Romania's major exports include machinery and equipment, textiles, footwear, metal products, minerals and fuels, chemicals and agricultural goods. The main industrial sectors are electric machinery and equipment, textiles and footwear, light machinery and car assembly, mining, timber, construction products, metallurgy, chemicals, food and petroleum refining.

Evidence of human settlement in Romania goes back as far as 2,000 years BC (Palaeolithic Era).

In ancient times Romania was occupied by Thracian tribes originating from Greece who set up the state of Dacia. The Dacians endured many invasions by the Romans and in the end fell under their rule. Romania and its people became totally Romanised and the Latin language was imposed onto the people. This was when the development of the Romanian culture began.

Throughout its history Romania has been subject to many wars. As a result of its geographical position it has had to endure many attacks from nearby countries moving through the lands. Many great heroes rose in defence of their country, including Vlad the Impaler (also known as the legendary Dracula) who spent time in power in Transylvania and Walachia against the Ottoman Turks and the Hungarians, as well as Stephen the Great in Northern Romania.

In the 20th century Romania had to endure the ordeal of the communist rule of Nicolae Ceausescu. Under his dictatorship the country's economy and resources were devastated as a result of his bizarre construction developments and leading to a very low standard of living for most people. In 1989 a popular uprising began in Timisoara and rapidly extended over the rest of the country. The dictatorship was ousted and a democratic political system was restored. This triumph allowed Romania's economy to return to the European market and renewed Romania's cultural standing.

Attractions and Activities
Romania is a very traditional country and is most famous for its fortune telling Gypsies, Dracula and Transylvania. Attractions and activities in Romania include cruising along the Danube Delta, exploring Bucharest and its architectural landmarks, horseback riding or hiking in the Carpathian Mountains and spa baths. Romania has many distinct landscapes including the beaches of the Black Sea, Carpathian Mountains, hills and valleys, rural villages, picturesque farmlands and gothic castles. Bucharest is an up and coming city with many new bars and restaurants opening throughout the city.

Expats in Romania
Romania is a location for more adventurous expats, who are looking for a change from run-of-the-mill expat destinations. Building, construction, engineering, IT, communications and software development industries provide a host of employment opportunities for those who are considering moving house to Romania.
