The main paper’s objective is to highlight the necessity to implement the topic of creative economy in Romania, mostly regarding creative communities and urban economics & policies. The paper is aimed at describing the state of creative communities & creative cities in Romania. The term of creative communities is widely used in the context of the knowledge-based society & creative economy. Its importance to sustainable development, wealth and prosperity is recognised mostly due to the amplified crisis effects, context according to which the creative communities and the creative industries have moved to the mainstream. The special needs of creative communities - considered to be flexible communities, supporting intercultural dialogue (intercultural city communities) - are more and more reflected within policy development at micro, meso (regional) and macroeconomic levels. This paper will focus on the regional level, highlighting the importance of urban policies.
