Romania

EuropeRomania

Romania is a nation situated on the western coasts of the Black Sea, north of the Balkan Peninsula save for Dobruja. It is a nation of exceptional natural beauty and diversity, as well as a plethora of ethnic, linguistic, and confessional groupings. Romania captivates tourists with its beautiful mountain vistas and untouched rural regions, as well as its ancient towns and bustling capital. It has made tremendous progress over the past decade and is one of the European Union’s newest members. It may, however, surprise some of its tourists used to western Europe. It has been designated as a UNESCO world heritage site for six cultural and one natural sites.

Romania is a vast nation marked by stark contrasts: certain cities are genuinely contemporary, while others seem to have been resurrected from the past. While it has major cultural parallels with other Balkan nations, it is considered distinctive because of its rich Latin history, which pervades every aspect of Romanian life, from culture to language. The Carpathian Mountains, wine, medieval castles, Dacia automobiles, Dracula, stuffed cabbage leaves (sarmale), the Black Sea, sunflower fields, painted monasteries, and the Danube Delta are just few of the things for which Romania is renowned.

Constantin Brâncuși (sculptor), Mircea Eliade (writer, historian, philosopher), Henri Coandă (aviation pioneer – the Coandă effect is named after him), Nicolae Ceaușescu (Romania’s final communist dictator), Nadia Comăneci (gymnast), Gheorghe Hagi (former association football player), and Leonard Doroftei are all famous Romanians (former WBA world champion).
