Hi! You can change euros at the banks or at the exchange places, the comission is not high and it will be displayed. There are a lot of banks and exchange places in Bucharest, it is impossible to not find them in your way. The sockets are european sockets you won t need an adaptor.
Hi Marta, you can exchange in the center of the city without commission and good rates. They display 0 commision.
I would recommand that you do not exchange in the airport or train station as the rate is very bad.

The sockets are normal european.

Do not forget to visit Infini Garden ;)

Have a nice trip!

1. Generally there is no comission when changing money, the only thing you need to take into consideration is the exchange rate. To be on the safe side, you could go to any bank, though the rates are not so good compared to a money exchange agency. For both banks and exchange agencies, the currency exchange rates are displayed outside.
2. Regular european sockets.

Marta, banks are probably the best and safest places to exchange money.
Expect European sockets. Eastern Europe, but still Europe :)
