Why Romania?

Romania is a country located in Southeastern Europe with a strategically geographical position at the intersection of the roads linking South and East South Europe to the Central and West Europe. With a surface of about 240,000 sq km Romania is the 83rd country in the world, respectively the 13th European country as surface and thus it is a country big enough to have the opportunity to visit various places, but also a relatively small country so you are able to move easily by bus or car, and to see quite a lot of sights in only a few days. 


The relief of Romania is varied, proportional, and complementary and has a symmetrical arrangement. The relief shares almost equally mountains (35% of the surface), hills, plateaus (35% of the surface), plains, and lowlands (30% of the surface). Thus, Romania is a country offering unique landscapes and sights for lovers of all relief forms.
Romania is a country full of unique sights in the world and Europe, having places full of history and tradition still untouched by the modern world of the 21st century. These sights make Romania a country worthy to be seen, discovered, and rediscovered, whenever an opportunity is available.
Romania offers, among other things, the Natural Reservation of the Danube Delta (the largest part of the Delta is located in Romania), the Carpathian Mountains (divided into Western Carpathians, Southern Carpathians and Eastern Carpathians) with the highest peak Moldoveanu (2544 m), the Danube Gorges (Danube Valley) at the entry of the Danube River on the Romania territory of via Southwestern area (with the Great and the Small Kazan gorges), the Apuseni Mountains (perhaps the most beautiful mountains in Romania), the Fortified Churches (the oldest fortifications preserved in a very good condition unique in Europe), the painted monasteries of Bucovina (unique in the world and in Europe through their painting), Maramures County (that wonderful and magical realm where much of the traditions are still preserved as hundreds of years ago). These are just a few milestones for which it is worthy to visit and discover the beauty of Romania.

The conquest of Dacia by the Romans led to the fusion of two cultures (Dacian and Roman), thus leading to the emergence of Daco-Romans, the ancestors of the Romanian people. Where else than in the Sarmizegetusa Ulpia Traiana you can better find the still preserved relics of the times in which the Romans and Dacians laid the foundations of the Romanian people.

At present Romania's population counts around 19 million inhabitants. The main ethnic group of inhabitants consists of Romanians (90%), followed by Hungarians (6.5%) and other minority ethnic groups.

Romania has a temperate-continental climate  with four distinct seasons (spring, summer, autumn, winter). The climate is influenced by the Eastern European steppe climates, the southwest Adriatic climate, and the oceanic climate from west and northwestern Europe.
All those mentioned above are just a few of the things that make Romania a country which is worth to visit, discover or rediscover and to see, live and feel the unique and beautiful places and things that Romania can offer to You.
