From what I gather from the following review "Miscellaneous" Bucharest Warnings Or Dangers Tip by Romanian_Bat the police might stop me and ask for my passport randomly. I'm a bit worried about carrying my passport everywhere in case I lose it or it gets stolen. The review mentions carrying a copy but doesn't give any further details.
I am from the UK, but I might not look like a typical person from the UK, I'm concerned that people will mistake me for a gypsie and I'm worried about what might happen if a police officer asks for id and I dont have it with me.
Can I carry a copy of my passport on the street in Bucharest instead of the real thing? Is there anything in particular that I need to make sure of when doing this?
