Abstract: The present study takes its argument from a growing tendency of today’s world. Bucharest is undoubtedly the country’s most important city economically, politically, socially and as far as administration is concerned; the city is also the main attraction pole of the population and a ‘furnisher’ of population for other parts of the country or abroad. As a complex process, population migration has many consequences in the sphere of economical, social, political life etc. However, one must not ignore or diminish the changes brought about in the geographical profile of the region. Ranging from the aspect to the features of the city, population mobility determines positive and negative changes in terms of environment quality and its function. It is certain is that the process also generates problems of geographical nature whose solutions or control are issues of projects which are bound to be put into practice.
