Greetings from Romania!

There is no other country in Europe well so worth visiting.
Romania has a great variety of landscapes, folk tradition and art and a very pleasant climate; she is welcoming and easily reached from any point on the continent. The variety of landscapes corresponds to the relief of the country.
Romania's relief is complex: it has mountains, hills and plateaus, and plains.
Romania has a temperate continental climate, which shows the country at its best in all seasons: bright, sunny days on the Black Sea Coast in summer, orchards full of big ripe fruit in autumn, snow- covered ski-slopes in the Carpathians in winter and signs of new life in the vast forests and fields when spring comes.
Romania is easily reached by air, by land or by sea from any point in Europe.
Welcome to Romania!

Romania is situated in the central-east European zone, between 43 and 48 degrees North latitude and between 20 and 29 degrees East longitude. 
     The Romanians are the descendents of two great peoples of the ancient times: Geto-Dacians and the Romans. The Getae and the Dacians belong to the great Thracian family. The name of Dacia is consolidated under the rule of Decebal, in 1st century A. D. In the early 2nd century A. D. the Roman Empire annex Dacia, a process that will be continue until 271 A. D. The Barbarian invasions did not change anything in the essence of the people that they found in this area. Isolated from Rome, Dacia looked for support in another part of the empire, Byzanthium, also called the Rome of the East. 
     Romanian’s territory, the Romanian people and language completed their formation in the last century of the 1st millenium A. D. Dacia’s population became Christian starting with the 4th century. Between the 7th and the 10th centuries the Romanians founded the first political formations before being states. Four centuries of wars against Turkish aggressions protected the Civilizations in Eastern Europe. 
     Walachia, Transylvania and Moldavia are the three Romanian principalities united in 1859 (Walachia and Moldavia) and in 1918 respectively, Transylvania as consequence of fall of the Hapsburg Empire. December 1, 1918 is the date when the historical destiny of the Romanian people was fulfilled by the creation of the Romanian unitary nation-state.
