What does it mean for a space to be good for a digital nomad?
A good space for remote workers and digital nomads is one that offers a conducive work environment, reliable internet access, comfortable seating, proximity to essential amenities, and opportunities for networking and community engagement, all while providing value for the cost. These are little pockets of places where you'll find remote workers, entrepreneurs, digital nomads, and other unique international people.
A space can be as small as a specific coliving location or as large as an entire city, or anything in between.
1.) Vine21 & AM Social Space in Bucharest
Vine21 is a coliving space located in a relatively central area in Bucharest. On the ground floor is a great place to socialize, connect, and enjoy the amazing specialty coffee at AM Social Space. You will always find an international presence in this place and the events they host are a great opportunity to connect with interesting people.
2.) Transylvanian Coliving in Sibiu
Trasylvanian Coliving is a 13-bedroom coliving and coworking space in Sibiu. Also located in a relatively central area of Sibiu, Trasylvanian Coliving allows digital nomads to stay for a while and connect with locals through a variety of regular events. These events can be either private for residents or open to the general public, allowing for ample networking opportunities.
3.) ClujHub in Cluj-Napoca
What makes Clujhub a great option is its networking opportunities. The greater Cluj region has many expats but not many people who might prefer to call themselves digital nomads. The location of this coworking space, combined with its events, makes it a great way to meet digital nomads, remote workers, and local professionals.
4.) Tea5 Social in Bucharest
This little pocket of Bucharest consistently hosts events that attract an international crowd. It is a great place to go and connect with internationals, travelers, and digital nomads.
5.) Cobana Coliving in Zarnesti
Cobana is located in a smaller town, which makes it a great option for taking a step back from the hustle and bustle of a big city. Colivings and digital nomads go hand in hand.
Bucharest in general deserves its recognition because it is an international city in all regards. Depending on which neighborhood you’re staying in, just check out a local coworking space and see if it’s a good fit for you. The great thing about Bucharest is that you have many to choose from.
Cluj as a whole has a very strong international presence, being that it is a big university city. There are a good number of expats, and you'll find the occasional digital nomad here and there.
