Crime in Romania usually consists of pickpocketing, theft (valuables, cars etc), verbal assault or drunk fights. All these can be avoided by using some common sense. If you pass by a shady group of people, most of the times they'd just ask you for a cigarette or whistle you (if you are a woman) and in most cases, they won t insist if you ignore them. Therefore, be smart, keep your mouth shut in these situations, and you´ll be just fine :)
Really sad to see men in these comment section unaware of the fact that women experience a completely different treatment. So much for chivalry. If you're only going to count your own perception in this matter (the safety of your own city) you can respectfully go "in pizda ma-tii."
In the summer be awere of thef on the streets . Some people are racist on gipsy.. on ethnic religion like muslims but those people have low education.
People are nice only if benefit from you.
1/ check the official stats.
2/ check the 10+ Facebook groups for foreigners and ask, have you ever personally seen a single fight with your own eyes, or someone being attacked. The answer will always be the same. Forget hearsay. 'my cousins friends neighbours boss' blah blah. Go by 1st hand accounts. As a social person, I've spent most of my 13 full time years and previous 4 part time years out and about somewhere or other, till the early hours of the morning. I've stayed in Rahova. I've walked through the city at 3,4,and 5am many times. Since 2003 I have seen a total of zero fights. I've travelled 62 countries, east and west and I've been in fights myself in the UK, US & HK Romania has plenty to moan about, but violent crime or safety is not one of them. Yes, the police don't care about thefts because capture is almost certainly impossible. But equally, it's rare, and we don't have the same over-presence we have in the UK. How many country's parks do you see single 18yo females jogging around alone at midnight? I can wait.
Visited Bucharest twice: once in 88, before the fall of Caecescu and once in 2018. The state of Romania in the Eastern block was disastrous: Little food, sad people, corrupt police who were extremely rude to me and my wife. They’d stand in line for hours to get a box of food.
Since then, Romania has changed but very superficially. The police changed uniforms but are still as rude and despicable as before (yelled at us for our documents and were uninterested when our luggage was robbed while we were looking for a taxi). Trash everywhere. The people who were so dreary now blare loud music out of their cars and catcall constantly. Having talked to Romanian friends back home, they mentioned how glad they are that they left their country. If you want to visit or live in Bucharest wait for the country to develop out of a post-communist crimehole to a decent, modern country.
