What we're about
Buna! Welcome to life in Bucharest, Romania, the Paris of the East!
This meetup group (ELP) was designed to bring together Expats & Repats, from all walks of life, to network and to create lifetime friendships, and to make the most of our stay in this wonderful city. Stay updated and join us for cultural and social gatherings; meet others with similar interests and raise a glass and say "Noroc!"
We regularly meet, e.g. we have a FAW event (Friday-After-Work), which gets you connected to the rest of the international crowd in Bucuresti. And for those preferring smaller events, we also meet for concert trips, tea-tasting, wine-tasting, picnics. We also cooperate with other meetup groups in order to maintain a lively meetup.
We talk many different languages, most notably English and Romanian (and its related languages), but also Greek, French, Turkish, Arabic, Russian, Bulgarian etc…, and possibly anything else that was created throughout the evolution of mankind and which has converged here in Bucharest.
Welcome to a new and exciting time in Bucharest!!!
Expat (expatriate): a person temporarily or permanently residing in a country and culture other than that of the person's upbringing or legal residence.
Repat (repatriate): a person who has returned to the country of origin or whose citizenship has been restored (Romanians in this case).
