About us - About Romania
Romania is placed in central-eastern Europe at the crossroads between the West (Austria, Germany, France etc.) and the Orient (Turkey and Russia). On the map, you can find Romania to the west of the Black Sea and to the North of the Danube River.
Sights, scenery and culture
Romania enjoys a variety of landscapes from the beautiful Black Sea coast line and beaches, to the breathtaking views from the top of the Carpathian Mountains. The Danube Delta is a natural landscape unique in Europe due to its animal and plant life diversity. Medieval castles and old monasteries are an integral part of the country's history and culture and make nice stops for the curious traveller. Villages offer a peaceful escape from the bustling city life, enabling tourists to get a taste of traditional Romania and its culinary delights.
Famous Romanian figures
Romanians would be less known if it weren't for its great people. Some of them have made the headlines of the news worldwide: Nadia Comaneci and her perfect 10 in gymnastics, Ilie Nastase and his great skills in tennis, Gheorghe Hagi and his football genius.
An even more famous figure is Dracula whose castle and home is said to be in Transylvania, the central part of Romania. Of course this is only fiction but part of the story resides in Transylvanian history. Ask us for information if you are curious to find out more.
A European country
Romania became part of the European Union in 2007, joining its economy and social life with the great European nations. Romania will also join the Schengen community in the near future thus allowing free passing for citizens and residents within the borders of the member countries.
