Considerations

Voltage

The voltages found in Greece (220V) and Romania (220V and 230V) are not exactly the same, but the difference is tolerable, so you should not need a transformer.

Good to know

Frequency of Electrical Current

The frequency found in Greece and Romania is exactly the same (50Hz). Timing devices and appliances that use motors will function as expected under this frequency.
