Romania Beckons - The Country You Will Love

Feb 21, 2008
People in most parts of the world seem to know very little about Romania these days. Either they have no idea about its location on the atlas, or they have heard something about terrible happenings in the country. The mention of the name of the country could be greeted with questions about the execution of Ceausescu, the gypsy problem, etc. Some might go as far as to suggest that Romania is still languishing in medieval times.

Well, we cannot say that part of these is not true! However, here are some facts about Romania, which can change your opinion for good. First Romania is a country where diversity is equalled only by beauty. It is a harmonious country lying in the South -East of Europe, which fascinates the visitor by the variety of its terrain.

From the high peaks of the Carpathians until the Danube Delta, Romania displays its agreeable harmony. There are great plateaus in Transylvania; there are sunny hills that are suitable for the culture of vine in Moldavia, fertile plains watered by clear and quick rivers in Walachia. That is what gives the charm of this beautiful country.

Take for example the Black Sea Coast. It has a large number of modern resorts with their architecture completely in tune with the natural surroundings. This non intrusive style of building can be seen in many big cities too. Incidentally, Romania has a population of over 22 million at the last count.

Bucharest, the capital city of Romania and a vibrant metropolis, holds its own charms for the foreign tourist. Iasi, Brasov and Sibiu are other interesting cities, with the last one being considered the cultural capital of the country. Not only the big cities, but every single province in Romania has something special to draw the foreign visitor.

For example, the south of the country, Oltenia, is famous for its embroideries and carpets, Maramures is famous for wooden sculptures, Bucovina is proud of its old traditions and Dobrogea can show you remnants of the past.

Perhaps the most well known region of Romania is Transylvania with its mysterious legend. The legend of Dracula, the vampire king, has Transylvania as its backdrop. It can be traced back to the times of Vlad the Impaler, the merciless tyrant, who ruled briefly between the years 1456 and 1462. His favourite form of punishment for his subjects was impaling them for disloyalty or any other crime.

This extremely cruel and bloodthirsty mode of punishment made people think that such barbarity is not possible by any human being. It was therefore attributed to some creature out of hell. This idea, along with the association with blood, gave rise to the legend of a vampire, who drank human blood. Visit the Bran castle in Brasov county of Transylvania and you will have many creepy experiences.

On the other hand, taking into consideration that evil cannot exist without a bright side, Romania suggests you to visit its famous monasteries, especially in the North of Moldavia. If you want to find the peace of your soul, you can visit any monastery in Romania. You will find there above all silence, and once you entered its territory, you even feel you are a better person. You can go there and pray and have some holy water or just enjoy the unique landscape.

We hope that these facts about Romania have made you at least curious to visit it
