In the years following 1989, as a consequence of market liberalization, a growing real estate pressure and an underdeveloped and poorly applied legal system, the outskirts of Bucharest were subject to a process of Urban Sprawl. Furthermore, during the communist era, Romania’s capital assimilated a large number of inhabitants, most of them having been housed in the newly built residential neighborhoods, located outside of the city centre. When juxtaposed, the two main areas (Central Work and Exterior-Residential) generated, in its turn, two types of density – an apparent one (during the day) and an actual one (during the night).
