Tips to stay safe in Bucharest:
Even though Bucharest is generally safe from natural hazards, you should be aware that it has the highest earthquake risk among European capitals, with major earthquakes shattering the city once in a few decades. The last major earthquake was in 1977 and it had a magnitude of 7.2 on the Richter scale, killing 1424 people in Bucharest alone.
Since then, several medium earthquakes occurred, partly alleviating the seismic tensions accumulated. However, experts are still expecting an important earthquake in the city, but its timing cannot be predicted.
Building standards have improved significantly since the seventies. Nevertheless, the city overall is still underprepared for a major natural catastrophe. The district has made a inventory count of buildings that will crumble during a future big earthquake, and marked them with red dots visible on the outside. Beware of red-dotted buildings, especially in the historical areas of the city.
