Our Projects

We’ve been offering quality Feel-at-Home services in Romania since 2008. City Compass started with a team of enthusiastic expats offering quality information, relocation services and advice to expats in Romania. It developed into a group with three main divisions, serving expats, foreigners and Romanians alike: City Compass Media, City Compass Tours & Events & City Compass Intercultural Consulting.
