Health and Safety:
Overall, Romania is a safe travel destination. But like elsewhere, one needs to be cautious about personal belongings. Ensure your travel insurance is valid for the duration of your trip.

Local Etiquette and Respect:
Romanians are generally warm and hospitable. When visiting monasteries, churches or other religious sites, dress modestly. A basic understanding of Romanian greetings and thank you can go a long way.
