Behind the decision of British migrants to settle in Romania was not necessarily the need or the business opportunities. The tourist experience in our country drew their attention on cultural and social differences. The dynamics of things, lifestyle and the rhythm a lot different from the English calm gained over many of them. Those who chose Bucharest declare to be in love not only with the air of an old European city and the cosmopolitan atmosphere that the capital city still has, but also with the night life and the many entertainment options. The English settled in Romania with the aim to follow their international careers appreciate that, although salaries are smaller than those from their native country, prices are equally smaller. Most of them occupy executive positions or lead their own businesses.

The Brits’ idea of community differs from that of other minorities in Romania. The community members cherish pretty much the autonomy principle and don’t make that many efforts to integrate in the host culture. They are also not very interested in being part of a certain group.

Anglia“I am an immigrant. We are all immigrants. And if someone says he/she is an expat, to me it means a lack of solidarity towards people who are in the same position but don’t have any money. I am very proud to say that I am an immigrant.”
