Hello i am planning to relocate to Timisoara . I will be getting monthly of 1,657 Euro. Can anyone suggest if this amount is good enough for having quality life there?

Thank you

@Ben,
Hello, you can manage with no problems with 4370 net, just make sure that where you find accommodation is close to where you work, ~15 minutes walk. in other case you will have to depend on public transportation(Which is not that good)/ or have a car which you will not have a place where to park(or with high prices for monthly parking plans). food is accessible, but watch out when looking for rent if they find out you are foreign they will ask more.
as a reference Iullius Mall Area - 300-400Euros for one month + utilities ~150 Euros other areas are also expensive, so watch out.Maybe get someone local to help you. Don't try to go through real estate agencies, they rip you off.
Hope this helps
