Romania Travel and Tourism

Romania Flag

Romania is a country located in Southeastern and Central Europe, North of the Balkan Peninsula, on the Lower Danube, within and outside the Carpathian arch, bordering on the Black Sea. Almost all of the Danube Delta is located within its territory. It shares a border with Hungary and Serbia to the west, Ukraine and the Republic of Moldova to the northeast, and Bulgaria to the south. The territory's recorded history includes periods of rule by Dacians, the Roman Empire, the Kingdom of Hungary, and the Ottoman Empire. As a nation-state, the country was formed by the merging of Moldavia and Wallachia in 1859 and it gained recognition of its independence in 1878. Later, in 1918, they were joined by Transylvania, Bukovina and Bessarabia. At the end of World War II, parts of its territories were occupied by the USSR and Romania became a member of the Warsaw Pact. With the fall of the Iron Curtain in 1989, Romania started a series of political and economic reforms. After a decade of post-revolution economic problems, Romania made economic reforms such as low flat tax rates in 2005 and joined the European Union in January 1, 2007. While Romania's income level remains one of the lowest in the European Union, reforms have increased the growth speed. Romania is now an upper-middle income country economy. Romania has the 9th largest territory and the 7th largest population among the European Union member states. Its capital and largest city is Bucharest , the 6th largest city in the EU with 1.9 million people. In 2007, Sibiu, a city in Transylvania, was chosen as a European Capital of Culture. Romania also joined NATO on March 29, 2004, and is also a member of the Latin Union, of the Francophonie of the OSCE and an associate member of the CPLP. Romania is a semi-presidential unitary state.

Romancing Romania - Bucharest
Romancing Romania It is often the case that when a country has a bad image, or is known for the wrong reasons, the reality turns out delightfully different from the perception. Such was my experience on a recent trip to Romania. The images that the name evokes are of a despotic dictator, the darkest days of communism, grim orphanages, and crumbling potholed boulevards in Bucharest, a city in its heyday known as the Paris of the East. Dracula's castle and vampires invariably form part of the equation too. It would be impossible in anything less than a voluminous book to explain Romania's history, and the following comments only reflect my own observations. The Romanians are Latin folk, this being reflected not only in the name of the...

Romanian cuisine - Bucharest
Romanian cuisine Romanian cuisine is diverse, blending the dishes of the several traditions which it has come into contact with, as well as maintaining its own character. It has been greatly influenced by Balkan cuisine but also includes influences from the cuisines of other neighbours, such as Germans, Serbians, and Hungarians. An exhaustive study of Romanian cuisine is very hard to make, because under the same generic food name are sometimes included products which can hardly belong to the same category. For example, the category ciorba includes foods classified otherwise as iskembe, sour soup, borsh and even some soups. The category tuica is a generic name here, while in other countries every flavour has a different name, and somet...
