Romania, located in the northern part of the Balkan Peninsula, shares its borders with five countries. To the north and northeast, it's bordered by Ukraine and Moldova, while Hungary lies to the northwest. Serbia is to the southwest, and Bulgaria is to the south.
Romania also has a coastline along the Black Sea and is a member of the European Union. The branches of the Danube River flow through Romania, surrounding the southern, southwestern, western, and northeastern parts of the country with their waters. The capital of Romania, Bucharest, is the country's largest city and is situated on the banks of the Dâmbovița River, a tributary of the Danube. Bucharest ranks among the top 10 largest cities in the European Union.
Apart from Bucharest, other important cities in Romania include Brasov, Iasi, Cluj-Napoca, Timisoara, Constanta, and Craiova. Timisoara is the second-largest city in Romania, Cluj-Napoca is the second most popular city, and Constanta serves as the largest port city on the Black Sea coast.
While the majority of Romania's population consists of Romanians, Hungarians, and Turks are among the ethnic minorities in the country. The official language is Romanian, but you can also hear Hungarian and German spoken in some regions. Young people in Romania, especially those under 30, often speak English quite well. Although the majority of the population is Orthodox Christian, there are Roman Catholics and Protestants in the country.
Romania experiences a climate with dry, hot summers and harsh, snowy winters. Winter temperatures can average around -3 degrees Celsius, while summer temperatures hover around 23 degrees Celsius on average. However, in some regions, temperatures can reach as high as 40 degrees Celsius or drop as low as -30 degrees Celsius. Despite challenging seasons, you can visit Romania year-round. It attracts tourists seeking sun and sea in the summer and accommodates skiing enthusiasts from December to March.
Romania also has numerous historical attractions that draw tourists. The country's economy relies heavily on agricultural production, primarily due to around 90% of its land being suitable for farming. Approximately 8% of the economy is based on industry, with Romania being one of Europe's leading grain producers, cultivating crops such as maize, barley, wheat, sugar beets, sunflower seeds, potatoes, grapes, oats, rye, vegetables, soybeans, tobacco, cotton, hemp, and flax.
In addition to agriculture, Romania has a well-developed livestock and fishing industry. It is also one of Europe's largest oil producers, trailing only Russia.
Romanian cuisine offers a rich variety of dishes, from cabbage rolls to "mămăligă" (a type of cornmeal porridge), and from meatballs ("mici") to a variety of pies. Crepes filled with jam and "cozonac" (a type of sponge cake) are some of the most beloved desserts. The influences of the Ottoman Empire are evident in Romanian cuisine, thanks to Romania's historical connection to the Ottoman Empire, making dishes like "marmalat," soups, stuffed cabbage, grilled meats, kebabs, carp fish, sheep's cheese, and pastirma common.
Romania is also known for its wine production, offering a range of tasty and diverse wines. If you prefer non-alcoholic beverages, you can find tea and coffee, which are popular among Romanians.
In July, tourists flock to the B'ESTFEST Music Festival held in Bucharest. The International Film Festival in April and the Dance Festival in October are among the famous events in Bucharest.
