Which are the biggest cities in Romania

Capital: Bucharest

With a population of around 1.9 million, Bucharest (Romanian spelling "București") is by far the largest city in Romania. The other cities don't even come close to this size. The other large cities of Romania have been measured with a number between 250,000 and 350,000 inhabitants, so București / Bucharest is about 6 times as big like the next cities in order.

In total there are about 20 cities in Romania that have a population of at least 100,000 inhabitants. Another 21 cities in Romania are on the order of between 50,000 and 100,000 inhabitants.

While most cities with a population of 200,000 to 300,000 are pretty tourist destinations for a few days - staying for several weeks is not worth it - Bucharest is a veritable molehole. The life of the city is something like the traffic collapse that takes place there every day.

Romania's main cities

According to the above list, the most important cities apart from Bucharest all have roughly 250,000 to 350,000 inhabitants. In Romania, the relevant cities fall under the municipal status law. Depending on the size of the city, this is called M0 - Munizipium 0. Ranges - M1 and M2 .... Only Bucharest itself is listed as M0.

There are a total of 320 cities in Romania (as of 2011). A corresponding census was also carried out in October 2011.
